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.
The presence of the Julian Alps enables a milder climate, since they protect the area from the cold north winds. Due to its nice weather conditions, Bled is a perfect location to visit both in summer and winter.
The most practical way to get to Bled is by bus from Slovenia's capital Ljubljana. It takes about 75 minutes and costs between 6 and 8 euros. If you are looking for flights, the closest airports are in Ljubljana (47 km) and Trieste (83 km).
