Lake Bled

Sail down the beautiful rivers

Overview

Explore the beautiful region of Bohinj where you can see some twenty typical Alpine villages in the region's two valleys. In the Upper Valley by Lake Bohinj, visit the Gothic St John the Baptist Church with its beautifully preserved frescoes from the 15th and 16th Centuries. Continue your journey with a cable car to Mt. Vogel where you can experience wonderful views of the lake and Julian Alps.  Take a private boat ride on the lake, and enjoy lunch in the restaurant in Bled Castle. Stay in the area for hiking, or simply to relax.

Best time To Go

The spring and the fall are the best times to visit Lake Bled. Early and late summer are also ideal, but we recommend to avoid July and August, specially during the weekends as all the locals flock to the area to escape the heat.

Insider's Guide

WHERE TO TRAVEL

We recommend to spend a couple of days in the area allowing enough time to cover Bled, Bohinj and the whole Julian Alps area. For visitors willing to spend some more time behind the wheel, a day trip to the Kobarid area and the Soca Valley (culinary region), where the famous Hisa Franko restaurant is located, would be a must.

HOW TO TRAVEL

Slovenia is great destination for self-drive programs, due to the easy accessibility as well as the short distances required to travel through the country.

UNMISSABLE

We love the cable car ride to the mountain Vogel, from where there is a wonderful view of the lake Bohinj and the surrounding parts of the Julian Alps. Also in this area, visitors can hike in the Triglav National Park or visit some of the other Alpine Towns.

DINE WITH THE LOCALS

The trendiest restaurant in Bled is Sova, located on the lake shore. Cozy and casual, the dishes presented are true works of art. It is a very popular spot among visitors and locals, so the few tables are booked up well in advance. Not to miss is the dessert menu!

ULTIMATE SOUVENIR

The area surrounding Bled is well-known countrywide for the honey production by traditional beekeepers. Honey, mead and dried fruit in honey can all be purchased directly from the producers.
