Full description
Lake Bled is often mentioned as the pearl of the Slovenian Alpine region due to its emerald-green waters, picture-perfect postcard church on the island, medieval castle on the rocky cliff, and some of the highest peaks of the Slovenian Alps as the background. Take a short walk along the lakeshore as the beauty of the surrounding mountains reflects off the lake surface. No matter the season, you'll enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of the lake and the fresh mountain air.  Perched atop a steep cliff more than 100 meters above the lake, Bled Castle is the iconic image of a medieval fortress, with towers, ramparts, moats and a terrace offering magnificent views. The castle houses a unique treasure - a reconstruction of Gutenberg's wooden printing press, on which the master printer will demonstrate old printing techniques using hand-made paper. Take the Pletna boat, a traditional boat known only to this region, to the tiny tear-shaped island on the lake. Upon returning from the island, stop at the local patisserie and taste Bled’s famous cream cake, kremšnita. In the last 60 years they have sold as many as 12 million of these cakes - they are definitely a can't-miss and a perfect way to top off your day.

Our guide Eva was awesome. She came on time, very friendly, knowledgeable about the whole Slovanian history. Started her explanation of Slovenian history as she drove us to the Vintgargorge where she helped us to get the tickets so we can beta the queue and be on time. Her explanations of the gorge were detailed and well understood. We then drove to Blad which was the main attraction with a detailed explanation of the lake. And in all, Eva was amazing and the best ever and definitely I would recommend my friends to book with her when they visit Ljudbliana.

It was an amazing experience! Our guide knew a lot about everything related to our trip and he was very nice and talkative. It was also good that he led us to every place and introduced us to everything but then, left us a moment to be by ourselves, taking our time to take photos and walk around. Totally recommended! He spoke also in a very good English and we could understand everything (we are spanish). 10/10

A very interesting and pleasant trip

Our guide Vladimir was very professional and an interesting person. The trip was safe, only two of us in Mercedes. There was no rush, we could ask a lot of questions about Slovenia. The weather was also great, wonderful walking tour on the river bank. We enjoyed the whole day very much. Thank you!
