#1 of 465 in Things to do in Slovenia
Board a gondola and make a trip to the little island with a church in the middle of Lake Bled, or just walk through the pristine nature around the lake. Surrounded by mountains and forests and rich with birdlife, this glacial lake is 2.1 km (1.3 mi) long and up to 1.4 km (0.9 mi) wide. Rent a bike and cycle around the lake or play some golf. The lake is also very popular among rowers. Walk up to the medieval castle towering over the north shore for panoramic views of the lake and the surrounding landscape. Several hotels in the area feature swimming pools filled with water coming from thermal springs. Lake Bled is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Bled Edition.

    You have to admit that if I imagine myself inside a fairy tale, complete with a castle and Prince charming, I should find it in the context of Lake Bled. Before you get there I was incredulous of the presence in the world of such a beautiful place, then finally comes the long-awaited moment and you start to realize that fairy tales often hide some reality. Bled Lake is a glacial Lake with a maximum depth of about 30 meters. Is navigable and bathing. The summer is very popular with tourists. Very characteristic the crossing by boat to the island, and to his Church. The best view from the castle of the same name. Numerous sports activities throughout the area, including fishing. In Lake Bled are present Tench Pike, Chub etc ..., and of considerable calibre. Romantic locals around. Highly recommended.

    A wonderful lake in a beautiful mountain setting. The pilgrimage to the small church on the island. To avoid visiting on holidays, because this beautiful scenery is literally besieged by tourists.
