Vila Bled Hotel, Lake Bled

The Austrian Prince Windisch-Gratz built a beautiful mansion on the site of the present villa when the region was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Subsequently, as Bled developed into a cosmopolitan resort for the European elite, the mansion served as a summer residence of the former Yugoslav royal family from 1920. After the Second World War, the villa was rebuilt into a presidential residence of Marshal Tito, where he hosted many important international statesmen.

Set in a magnificent 1.2-acre park on the shores of the lake, the Vila Bled is only a 20-minute lakeside stroll from the town center. The exquisite charm of the villa arises from its elegant and spacious marble interior, characteristic of a bygone era. Guests can enjoy a relaxing walk along sandy paths among colorful flowerbeds and majestic trees of more than a hundred different species from around the world.
