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.

Bled was recommended by a friend who visited recently. It is very beautiful and pristine. A beautiful place to visit off the beaten track. more »
Paradise! Over there you can enjoy the nature and feel the fresh air!! Also you can make some water sports or rent a bicycle. However if you want to climb in to the top of the mountain in order to see the amazing view it’s little bit dangerous.
Lake Bled is absolutely stunning. I visited in summer, when temperatures were high and snow on the mountains sparse. Luckily the lake provides many opportunities for cooling down. When in town, you should definitely rent a boat and go for a row to the island on the lake. Also be sure to stroll around the shore, stopping often for photos. The restaurants in town also have a great variety of cuisines, with many being vegetarian friendly.
