Bled is known for the glacial Lake Bled, which makes it a major tourist attraction. Perched on a rock overlooking the lake is the iconic Bled Castle. The town is also known in Slovenia for its vanilla and cream pastry.

Naturopath Arnold Rikli (1823–1906) from Switzerland contributed significantly to the development of Bled as a health resort in the second half of the 19th century. Due to its mild climate, Bled has been visited by aristocratic guests from all across the world. Today it is an important convention center and tourist resort, offering a wide range of sports activities (golf, fishing, and horseback riding). It is a starting point for mountain treks and hikes, especially within nearby Triglav National Park.

A small island in the middle of the lake is home to Assumption of Mary Pilgrimage Church; visitors frequently ring its bell for good luck. Human traces from prehistory have been found on the island. Before the church was built, there was a temple consecrated to Živa, the Slavic goddess of love and fertility.

One can get to the island on a traditional flat-bottomed wooden boat (Slovene: pletna), which is a fixed fleet of 23 boats since the 18th century to protect the river’s cleanliness, which is now a family-owned business. The island on Lake Bled has 99 steps. A local tradition at weddings is for the husband to carry his new bride up these steps, during which the bride must remain silent.

The town is served by Lesce-Bled Airport. Slovenia’s biggest international airport Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport is only 34 road kilometers away.

Bled is located on the southern foot of the Karawanks mountain range near the border with Austria, about 50 km (31 mi) northwest of the state capital Ljubljana. South of Lake Bled is the densely forested Pokljuka and Jelovica plateaus, the easternmost parts of the Julian Alps. Here the Sava Bohinjka and the parallel Bohinj Railway lead up to the Bohinj basin, Lake Bohinj, and the Triglav massif.

The lake is 2.12 kilometers (1.32 mi) long and 0.5 to 1 kilometer (0.31 to 0.62 mi) wide. In summer, the surface water reaches 25 °C (77 °F) and retains a temperature up to 18 °C (64 °F) until autumn. As such, it is suitable for swimming. In colder winters it freezes and is used for ice skating. There is a thermal spring (23 °C or 73 °F) near the lake, next to the Bled Fault. Its water is used in indoor pools in two hotels.

    Hello Renata, it’s nice to see these hotels where one can stay with friends and it has some really good services which on can enjoy. I have recently been to Croatia before the lockdown and it wasn’t really great because I couldn’t get a good hotel to stay with my family. These suggested hotels are very cool and one that caught my attention is the Lesce Hotel. It’s the room from the picture on the article is really conducive. I would love to share with my friends just incase anyone will be taking a booking to Slovania.
