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.

  • I was staying at Vila Bled, so I could enjoy the wonderful lake view from the window, but i walked by the lakeside and walked to the castle, and during that time I was able to enjoy the scenery from various angles. The view from the castle was also great, but the view of the island which I went across the island by the board afterwards was also interesting.

  • I was here with friends, attracted to this island in the middle of the lake. It is reached exclusively through a paid odolboat. Once there is a church to visit and the Tower that offers a crazy view. On land firm little parking possibilities.
