Board a gondola and make a trip to the little island with a church in the middle of Lake Bled, or just walk through the pristine nature around the lake. Surrounded by mountains and forests and rich with birdlife, this glacial lake is 2.1 km (1.3 mi) long and up to 1.4 km (0.9 mi) wide. Rent a bike and cycle around the lake or play some golf. The lake is also very popular among rowers. Walk up to the medieval castle towering over the north shore for panoramic views of the lake and the surrounding landscape. Several hotels in the area feature swimming pools filled with water coming from thermal springs.

Lake Bled Reviews
This view was nothing short of magical, the closest thing to a fairy tale I will ever experience. Rowed a small boat to the castle and back and the view is even better in the middle of the lake... more »
One of the most beautiful picturesque lakes and it is just amazing to walk around or jog around. The restaurants with a lake view or a castle view are really nice. Don't forget to try the Bled Cake... more »
Believe the hype, this place is fairytale levels of beautiful.

Bled is popular with tourists but what the heck, sometimes tourist hot spots are visited for a reason – Lake Bled is stunning! Just picture a fairy tale story and you are there.
