Bled

The most popular resort in Slovenia, Bled is marked by its iconic church steeple and medieval castle on glacial Lake Bled.

There's much more to do: head outdoors with Mala Osojnica, whizz through the canopy at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks, and get great views at Straža Bled.
