Bled

Bled

The town of Bled first appeared in annals in the year 1004, though almost certainly the area has been settled since before recorded time. Visitors from around Slovenia are attracted to Bled’s setting in northwestern Slovenia’s Julian Alps, and to Lake Bled, a glacial lake popular with outdoor sports enthusiasts. Bled’s medieval castle, set high on a hill overlooking the lake, features bells that can be heard across the small valley quite often, as ringing them is supposed to bring luck.
