Bled, Slovenia

    Natural  beauty, points of historical interest and an advantageous geographical location south of the Alps near the Austrian and Italian borders make Bled an ideal place for tourism. It is adorned by three gems: the old castle, the lake and  the island which sits with its church in the middle of the lake. Bled Castle, a silent witness to its former power,  resolute and stalwart on a rock above the lake, stands watch over the town. From the castle, visitors have a magnificent  view of the splendor of Bled and its surroundings. Lake  Bled is renowned for its exceptional beauty.

    The  forested slopes of the Jelovica and Pokljuka plateaus serve as the background to this heavenly spot. Above them on a  clear day you can see the white peaks of the Julian Alps.  In the middle of the lake lies the island with the Church of the Assumption. The island and the church have a rich history. Its wishing bell from 1534 above the altar of St.  Catherine attracts many visitors. In addition to all these features, there are a number of other interesting sights in Bled and its surroundings which are worthy of a visit.

    Bled is 315 km East of Venice, 225 km South East of Salzburg, 385 km West South of Vienna.
