Bled — 4 nights

The most popular resort in Slovenia, Bled is marked by its iconic church steeple and medieval castle on glacial Lake Bled.
Step off the beaten path and head to Old Town Centre of Radovljica and Planica Nordic Centre & Zipline. Get some cultural insight at Bled Castle and Liznjekova house. Explore Bled's surroundings by going to Bohinjsko Jezero (Church of St John the Baptist & Lake Bohinj), Martuljek Waterfalls (in Gozd Martuljek) and Mostnica Gorge (in Stara Fužina). There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at Museum of Apiculture, trek along Vintgar Gorge, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Martin's Parish Church, and admire the landmark architecture of Bled Island.
