A fairytail getaway
Lake Bled is a picture-perfect lake of iconic beauty. It lies at the foothills of the Julian Alps in the north western corner of Slovenia.
The colour of the water is mesmerizing! You can easily walk around the lake following a lovely flat path. It’s truly like walking in a fairytail.
It takes between one, and one and half hours to walk around the lake, which is a little over 2 kilometers in length and a little less than 1,5 km in width, with a mximum depth of 30 mt.
In the middle of the lake there is a charming little tear-shaped island, the only natural island in Slovenia. You can reach it either by swimming, renting a row boat or by taking a traditional wooden boat, called Pletna
In conclusion, to get a panoramic view of the lake you have to visit Bled Castle, a medieval castle built on a cliff overlooking the lake and the city of Bled.
