BLED

Bled is located in Gorenjska, between the Karavanken and the Julian Alps.

The enchanting lake, the castle on a cliff overlooking Bled, the green surroundings and the many opportunities that Bled has to offer, makes that Bled is the main tourist resort in Slovenia.

In the middle of the lake lays Blejski Otok, a small wooded island, on which a small church is located. This church from the 15th century was consecrated in 1465 by the first bishop of Ljubljana. In 1509 the church was damaged by an earthquake after which it was rebuilt. The present church dates from the 17th century. Through a traditional Pletna, a kind of gondola, the church can be visited.
The wishclock in the church can be tolled by the visitors. After tolling the bell, all their wishes will come true.

On top of the cliff besides the lake lays Blejski Grad. According to found back writings the castle dates from the year 1004. The texts refer to the German Emperor Henry II who would have given away the castle to Albuin bishop of Brixen in return for help he had given him.
Today one can find in the castle a restaurant, a souvenir shop, a print shop, a wine cellar and a herbal gallery. The castle consists of two courtyards, a chapel and a panoramic terrace with stunning views over Lake Bled and its surroundings.
