Lake Bled, Bled: 67 reviews and 149 photos
Lake Bled is one of those Glacial Lakes that are a pretty blue/green colour, that I think are rather pretty.
It came about when the Bohinj Glacier melted and filled the basin with water, hence making Lake Bled.
The Lake can heat to 25°C in the summer and be ice-covered in Winter!
Tourist Boats [Pletna] will ferry you over and back to the Island [for a fee] where the ancient Slavs worshipped Ziva, goddess of love and fertility. Pilgrims later came to the church of St Mary on the island.
To access the island in 2011, was another 3 euros.
Please check the website for opening hours, as they vary through-out the year. It will also give you the time, Mass is held.
The little tourist train also stops at where the Boats depart from
Directions: If you walk or drive around lake, you will see where people swim.
