Bled, Slovenia

IMG_20160424_061153We came to Bled yesterday, separately. I went down to Postojna first. Charles came directly from Ljubljana. This morning. I woke up at dawn, so I went for a walk around the lake. I always try for at least one dawn per trip. It has taken me a month! I love how quiet it is, and the changing light.IMG_20160424_064356Just me and the swans.IMG_20160424_064909There is a castle (of course) on a hill overlooking the lake.IMG_20160424_093430Charles and I went up this morning.IMG_20160424_095115There is a nice view down to the lake.IMG_20160424_095419It has a nice little chapel.IMG_20160424_095730With frescoes from 1700.IMG_20160424_105424On my way back to the hostel, I stopped at the Supermarket. It looks nothing like Loblaws.

    Thank you for sharing your experience! I am thinking of going to Bled this summer, and I am looking for advice about the best way of getting there (train, bus, or something else).

      Better to come by bus. The train station is in Lesce, the next village, about 4 km from Bled. The bus stops right in the village of Bled. We came by bus from Ljubljana, there are several a day.
