Bled is undoubtedly the most popular tourist destination in Slovenia and record numbers of visitors pass through each year. Its location of 50 km from Ljubljana makes Bled within easy reach for a day trip at any time of the year. So why not hop on a bus from Ljubljana to Bled? However, with so many things to see and do we’d recommend allowing more time if possible because once you arrive you might find it hard to leave. There is, of course, the magnificent lake which itself is worth a trip, but there’s also a huge choice of places of interest, activities and events for visitors to enjoy.
Bled Castle is the stuff of children’s dreams. First mentioned in the year 1011, it is officially the oldest castle in Slovenia. The castle is now home to a museum and restaurant and if you’re visiting in June then experience the Medieval Days Festival is a must.
Vintgar Gorge was only officially discovered in 1891, the gorge’s natural beauty was immediately recognised and work commenced on the construction of a wooden walkway along its 1.6km length. The short but breathtaking trek is definitely a must-do for anyone who visits the region! www.vintgar.si
