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.

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.
