Lake Bled is a famous lake in the Julian Alps in the northern part of Slovenia. Many people say it’s an image of paradise and it was nominated in the 7 wonders of the world. It is surrounded with forests and mountains, overlooked by the famous Bled castle. It is of mixed tectonic and glacial origin. It is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Slovenia. It’s a bit over 2 kilometers long and a bit over 1 km wide. At the beginning of the 20th century, Lake Bled was considered to be the most beautiful health resort in Austria-Hungary. After World War II, this was the location of one of the most important state protocol residences. Villa Bled has retained this function to the present day.
OUR TIP: Have a short break and get a cup of coffee and kremšnita / cream cake in one of the local shops on the Lake shore.
