Bled On a Budget
Bled Bled, Slovenia
Bled is an incredibly scenic place, on the east side of Lake Bled. The lake is a beautiful, rich, emerald green. There's a small island in the middle of the lake where you'll find a nice white chapel. The lake is surrounded by striking green mountains, among which you'll find the Bled Castle overlooking the scene. Bled also offers access to the nearby Triglav National Park, a popular destination for outdoor enthusiasts and adrenaline junkies. Within the national park you'll find countless waterfalls and the lovely Lake Bohinj. You can find plenty of opportunities for mountain climbing, rafting, and hiking. There's even a cable car if you're looking for an easy way to get some good views of the mountains and landscape.
Sights
The most obvious sight in Bled is the lake itself. It was formed after the recession of the Bohinj glacier at the end of the Ice Age. Other sights include the Bled Castle, Bled Island, Iglica Waterfall, and the Babji Zob Caves.

Bled Castle is beautifully situated within Romanesque walls. It is white and red and the current structure was built in the 17th century with restorations taking place in the 1950s. There is a terrace that has great views of the island below and a small museum that provides information on the castle's history.

Located on Bled Island, the Church of the Assumption is a baroque church that was built in 1698. It has well preserved frescoes that show scenes from the life of the Virgin Mary. It is traditional to ring the wishing bell that was installed in the church in 1534.
Neighborhoods
Bled is a small town that can easily be explored on foot. Also of interest is nearby Triglav National Park.

Activities
There are countless outdoor activities that you can enjoy around Bled. These include hiking, swimming at Grajsko kopalisce, golf, skydiving, fishing, and summer tobogganing.

There are several interesting festivals in town every year. Three of the most popular include Bled Days, which takes place the fourth weekend in July, Okarina Etno Festival, with traditional folk music the first weekend in August, and the International Music Festival Bled in early July.

Also make sure you visit Triglav National Park, which is the only national park in Slovenia. The highest peak in the Julian Alps, Mount Triglav, is in the middle of the park. There are also many valleys, and two large river systems in the park.

Plenty of activities are also available in the colder months, such as ice skating, hiking (yes!), and visiting hot springs. For more information, read the best things to do in Lake Bled in the Winter.
Food and Dining
There are many restaurants in town, a large number of which are attached to hotels. You'll find some free standing restaurants as well, so when possible, seek those out. In general, you'll find restaurant prices to be higher than elsewhere in Slovenia due to the high number of tourists in town. One affordable fast food option is Simoncinka, located at Ljubljanska cesta 4. They have good burgers, chicken and salads for a reasonable price.

Also make sure you try the local specialty, kremna rezina, which is a sweet cake made of vanilla custard and cream.

Transportation
You can easily walk around Bled and if you want to circle the entire lake, it will take just over an hour. Bicycles are also a great way to get around, particularly if you're interested in getting into the surrounding area. You can rent a bicycle from one of the many outdoor agencies around town. Do note that there are no designated bike lanes in Bled, and cycling off road is not allowed. Finally, another unique option is to hire a horse to explore the area. You can hire horses, both with and without guides, from many of the different outdoor agencies. Horse drawn carriages are also available for rides around the lake.

If you're hoping to get out on the water or take a trip to the island, then your best option is a pletna boat. A pletna boat resembles a large gondola that carries approximately ten people. The rowers usually wait for the boat to fill up before beginning the trip. The entire trip takes an hour and a half. This includes an hour on the water and a half hour to explore the island. Your other option to reach the island is by rowboat. There are rental shops below the castle and also near the activity center on the west shore of the lake.
