A scenic two hour drive from Zagreb, the fairy tale of Slovenia’s Bled Lake enchants with unparalleled serenity, fresh alpine air and a picture-perfect combo of nature and romance. This corner of the Earth, where time seems to linger between emerald waters, mountain peaks and celestial blues, inspires romantics, nature lovers and families alike.
Your private English speaking chauffeur will meet you at your Zagreb hotel to drive you to Bled. As you leave the bustling city behind, see the capital of Croatia slowly melt into green landscapes of rolling hills, hilltop castles and small villages. The drive to Bled takes around two hours and crosses EU border between Croatia and Slovenia.
Slovenia is tiny but charming and very attractive, with its meticulously tendered landscapes and picturesque villages. You will drive through most of this small country but count on falling in love with Bled’s glacial lake almost instantaneously.
Your exploration starts with a highlight: a ride in the traditional wooden pletna boat, propelled very much like a gondola. Head over to the tiny islet capped with an exquisite 17th century Church of the Assumption, sitting on top of 99 stairs. On the lakeside, enjoy a pleasant promenade or hike up to the Bled Castle, sitting some 100 meters above the lake and promising breath-taking views. Enjoy a lunch of Slovenian specialties on your own and do not miss tasting the signature Bled cake at one of the many cafés or patisseries along the waterfront.
