This was my favorite spot on my trip to Eastern Europe. The scenery is outstanding with an island church and hilltop castle. Moreover, the local area has great shops, eateries and bars. The mountains are a short drive away, so if you are looking for travel adventure, outdoors adventure, beautiful scenery, romantic getaways or family vacations, Bled can cater to them all.
Insider Tip:I was once a professional swimmer, so at night (I stayed here in August), I would go down to the lake edge and spend a few hours swimming. I would swim to the island, and back a few times till it got dark. So insider tip, if you want to swim, there is a park away from the actual water park where you can just strip to speedo and swim for free. With no motor traffic, there is no danger. Also, get your Union beer from the grocery store before 9, when they lock their beer fridges.
