Lake Bled is the most photographed Slovenian lake and one of the most picturesque places in Europe.
The crystal turquoise lake with a tiny island in the middle of it, overlooked by a medieval castle from a cliff and surrounded with snow capped Julian Alps, make a perfect picture postcard scenery.
When you add to the vista, a baroque church with clock tower on the islet with shimmering sunlight on the lake and swimming ducks and swans in the lake, you get the feeling of a superb dream.
Majestic beauty of the lake is even more emphasized by reflections of the castle, cliff and mountains in the lake’s luminous clearness,
while spectacular creativity of the unspoiled nature is crowned with a magical relaxing and sublime romantic atmosphere seen only in old movies.
