Hiking in Bled

Land of churches, castles and a magnetic lake

The Slovenian village of Bled is located in the Julian Alps, very close to the Austrian border and right next to the Triglav National Park, the most important protected area in Slovenia. Although its landscape and hiking options are really beautiful, Bled’s main attraction is the glacial lake at the foot of the Julian Alps. Its crystal clear waters are surrounded by forests that lead to ancient castles and churches. Get lost on these trails, Bled is a magically perfect place to do so.
