Bled is a little Slovenian town which is located on the southern foot of the Karawanks mountain range near the border with Austria, about 50 km (31 mi) northwest of the state capital Ljubljana.
The lake is 2.12 kilometres long and 0.5 to 1 kilometre wide. In summer, the surface water reaches 25 °C and retains a temperature up to 18 °C until autumn. As such, it is suitable for swimming. In colder winters it freezes and is used for ice skating.
We were lucky to see Bled at winter, the view is magical, something you can't explain. It was nice to visit "Castle of Bled", which is on the top of the city. We found a nice restaurant on top of the castle where there was an old vinery, museum and an old little church...
Also we reccomend amazing little houses in the middle of the woods as a place of rest. The place is called "Glamping Ribno Bled". Theres six little wooden houses with your own hot tub and bathroom. It's like camping but more private and fancy. The house is so cosy and the view is beautiful, especially at night when you are in hot tub and watching the stars. They have a brekfast basket with Slovenian products which we really liked. Its something that you have to try.
