Bled — 6 nights

The most popular resort in Slovenia, Bled is marked by its iconic church steeple and medieval castle on glacial Lake Bled.
You've added Planica Nordic Centre & Zipline, Lake Jasna, Jelovica Plateau, and other attractions to your itinerary. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Old Town Centre of Radovljica and St. Martin's Parish Church. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Bled Castle and Škofja Loka Castle. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Bled: Planica Valley (in Rateče), Kapela Kristusa Kralja (in Solčava) and Kranjska Gora (Ajdovska Deklica, Zgornjesavska Valley, &more). There's lots more to do: kick your exploration up a notch at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks, hike along The Three Castles Path, admire the sheer force of Slap Grmečica, and get great views at Mala Osojnica.

Take the guesswork out of planning a Bled vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.
