Bled ©
The most popular resort in Slovenia, Bled is marked by its iconic church steeple and medieval castle on glacial Lake Bled.
Explore hidden gems such as Zelenci Nature Reserve and Martuljek Waterfalls. Visiting Vintgar Gorge and Zipline will get you outdoors. Venture out of the city with trips to Bohinjsko Jezero (Church of St John the Baptist, Lake Bohinj, &more), Kranjska Gora (Liznjekova house & Tromeja -Triple border) and Planica Valley (in Rateče). And it doesn't end there: explore the historical opulence of Bled Castle, stroll through Straža Bled, head off the coast to Bled Island, and see the interesting displays at Slovenian Alpine Museum.

To see more things to do, reviews, photos, and more tourist information, use the Bled travel planning website.
