Bled tour

Bled is situated at the foot of the Julian Alps and is one of the most beautiful places in Slovenia. So much so that it is often described as ‘the pearl of Slovenia’. With its glacial lake, beautiful island set in the middle of the lake, medieval castle rising above the lake, springs and mild climate Bled has been a well-known tourist attraction for centuries.

We shall take a ride to the island in a traditional Pletna boat. The Church dedicated to the Assumption of Mary on the island has always been a popular pilgrimage destination, but today it is open to visitors who can admire its art treasures and ring the wishing bell.

Above the lake perched on a 120 metre high cliff proudly stands a medieval castle. Once inaccessible and never conquered it has been converted into a museum. In addition to stunning views of the lake and island and spectacular views of the adjacent the tourist resort of Bled the castle also offers a tour of the castle print shop, wine cellar, Gothic chapel and historical museum.
