What to Expect
Bled is often mentioned as the pearl of the Slovenian Alpine region. With its emerald-green waters, picture perfect postcard church on the island, a medieval castle on the rocky cliff and some of the highest peaks of the Slovenian Alps as the background. Lake Bled is a place you should not miss. Take a short walk along the lake shore. The beauty of the surrounding mountains reflects on the lake surface. Throughout the seasons visitors will enjoy the peace of the lake and fresh air.
Perched atop a steep cliff more than 100m above the lake, Bled Castle is how most people imagine a medieval fortress to be, with towers, ramparts, moats and a terrace offering magnificent views. The castle houses a unique treasure - a reconstructed Gutenberg's wooden printing press on which the master printer will demonstrate old printing techniques using hand-made paper. If you wish to have a memorial certificate, become a castle master printer and after some minutes of hard work you will learn to appreciate the “black” art.
From the lake shore you can take the 'pletna' boat to the lake island. The tiny, tear-shaped island beckons from the shore and the ride with the 'pletna' boat is a real thrill.
The baroque island Church of the Assumption dates from the 17th century, though there has been a church here since the 9th century. The 15th century belfry contains a 'wishing bell' you can ring to ask for a special favor. But make sure you pull the rope and make the bell ring three times for only then will the bell make your wish come true.
Upon returning from the island you will probably be tired. Stop at the local patisserie and taste Bled’s famous cream cake – kremšnita. They have sold as many as 12 million cream cakes in the last 60 years. Try it yourself!
