Lake Bled in Slovenia | Ideal for a romantic weekend

The town of Bled is located in Slovenia 55 kilometers from the small and lively capital Ljubljana. Extremely close is the resort of Kranjska Gora famous for the races of the World Cup ski held there in winter. Slovenia is a European country that deserves to be discovered. In the meantime it is bordered by Italy with which it shares a number of important historical phases: Caporetto Isonzo and interesting alpine landscapes (at least in this Northwest part dominated by the Julian Alps).

Bled is a charming town located on a lake, Lake Bled which is extremely charming. The lake is of glacial origin and there is the only island in Slovenia. A small island with a romantic popular sanctuary that you can reach with traditional boats. All around the lake there is a walk that can be done on foot or by bicycle and higher up on the quite steep shores of the lake stands the Castle, the symbol of Bled, in addition to many beautiful villas including the one where Tito loved spending the holidays at the time of Yugoslavia. From Bled in the summer you can do many active sports from rafting on the clear waters of the rivers in Slovenia, canoeing and climbing. If you want to go sightseeing Bled in addition to the castle there’s steep and picturesque spas (hot springs are right in the lake), many fine shops and parks.

To sleep, especially if you have arrived here in the car, I suggest Bledea small residence. The building is surrounded by a park where even the deer come out at night to graze. There are four apartments, two, three, four beds, kitchen, bedroom, bathroom. Prices: 52 euro for two people per day.
