It is a very popular tourist destination and a truly amazing natural miracle, with a beautiful island in the middle. a small island with a 17th-century baroque Church. It is 2,120 m long 1,380 m wide and depth of 29 m (maximum). The island having buildings, the main one being the pilgrimage church dedicated to the Assumption of Mary. Because of its beauty, it is one of the loveliest wedding venues in Europe, and it has also been the location of important diplomatic and state protocol meetings.

        This is the he oldest castle in Slovenia, first cited in a 1011. In 2011, The castle celebrated its 1000-year anniversary. Overlooking Lake Bled, perched 130 meters high above on a precipice, is the Bled Castle. Enter the museum to see its artifact’s, Armor and weaponry. Spend some free time to capture supreme views of Lake Bled from atop the cliff.

Entrance fee is €9 (students €7, children €4,5). It’s possible and pleasant to walk up to Bled Castle from the lake. It takes around 15 minutes. I enjoyed beautiful views while waking. Get there by car also possible. There’s parking at the top.
