Bled is a small town located in Gorenjska region, and Slovenia’s most popular resort due to its breath taking scenery and many outdoor activities. Moreover, Lonely Planet chose Bled as one of the top10 regions to visit in 2018! In the centre of everything is Lake Bled (Blejsko jezero). Lake Bled is a picture perfect mountain lake with emerald green water and a tear shaped isle in the middle. A fairy tale like church stands on the Isle, and an imposing medieval Bled Castle stands tall on a rocky cliff overlooking the lake and the town.
Culinary scene of Bled is based on locally produced food. Bled also serves as an access point for Triglav National Park, where eco livestock free range breeding is extremely important and is also a big part of the local tradition – everything from meat to homemade cheeses and other dairy products. However, the most famous dish is a desert called Kremšnita, a cake made of vanilla custard and crème.
Bled is known for its romantic spirit and as an access point for many outdoor activities – hiking, biking, swimming, rafting, and various other water sport activities. Rowing boats or more traditional Pletna boats are a great way to explore the lake and the isle. For something a little bit different, Hot air balloon flights are a great way to experience the amazing and breathtaking views of Lake Bled and nearby Julian Alps.
Bled truly is one of those special places, that words cannot do it justice. You really need to experience it and live it, because it is a sight that stays in your memory forever.
