Located in the Julian Alps, Lake Bled is one of Slovenia’s most popular tourist attractions. Lake Bled is an excellent destination for everyone, from a solo traveler to a family or a group of friends.
As you look across a pool of impossibly blue water, to the historic church in the centre, and over to the Julian Alps, you’ll understand why Lake Bled is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Slovenia
Kayak to the island
Possibly the most popular thing to do at Lake Bled is to hire a kayak and travel to the island in the middle of the lake. You can rent kayaks for around 15 euros, paddle across to the island and leave the kayaks as you explore!
Truth be told, the history lovers out there should be sure to check out Bled Castle, which is perched high above Lake Bled and looks akin to something out of a fairytale. The medieval castle dates back to the 11th-century and can be visited for a fee.
Try some local food
Slovenian food isn’t that famous, but there’s plenty for you to try here – including some Bled specialties. The most famous is perhaps Bled Cream Cake or Kremsnita, which is made from puff pastry, cream and egg custard.
