The most popular resort in Slovenia, Bled is marked by its iconic church steeple and medieval castle on glacial Lake Bled.
Visiting Vintgar Gorge and Lake Bohinj will get you outdoors. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Old Town Centre of Radovljica and St. Martin's Parish Church. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Bled: Kranjska Gora (Zgornjesavska Valley, Lake Jasna, &more) and Vogel (in Bohinjsko Jezero). 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.
