Bled

The most popular resort in Slovenia, Bled is marked by its iconic church steeple and medieval castle on glacial Lake Bled.
Kids will enjoy Lake Bohinj and Mala Osojnica. Visiting Vintgar Gorge and Triglav National Park will get you outdoors. Change things up with these side-trips from Bled: Lake Jasna (in Kranjska Gora), Bohinjsko Jezero (Savica Waterfall & Vogel) and Peričnik Waterfall (in Mojstrana). There's still lots to do: fly like a bird with a parasailing or paragliding tour, take in the spiritual surroundings of Bled Island, tour the pleasant surroundings at Straža Bled, and whizz through the canopy at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks.

For more things to do, traveler tips, other places to visit, and other tourist information, read our Bled online holiday maker.
