Bled — 5 nights

The most popular resort in Slovenia, Bled is marked by its iconic church steeple and medieval castle on glacial Lake Bled.
Spend the 13th (Tue) exploring nature at Triglav National Park. There's lots more to do: step into the grandiose world of Bled Castle, head off the coast to Bled Island, don't miss a visit to Heart of Bled, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Martin's Parish Church.

Plan my trip to Bled with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Dublin, Ireland to Bled is an approximately 8-hour flight. You can also do a combination of ferry and car; or do a combination of bus and train. Traveling from Dublin to Bled, you'll lose 1 hour due to the time zone difference. Plan for slightly colder temperatures traveling from Dublin in December, with highs in Bled at 5°C and lows at -3°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 15th (Thu) to allow time to drive to Portorož.
