Intro

Hop over to Slovenia to view one of Europe’s most photographed spots!

Slovenia’s Lake Bled is truly stunning. Set in a pine forest with a mountain scenery backdrop, Lake Bled is can't-believe-your-eyes-pretty and it rightfully deserves it’s name as ‘’the Pearl of Alps’’. All snow-capped mountains and glass-like waters, its home to Slovenia's only island - and there is more than a touch of the Austrian Alps about it. In fact, at first glance you will think you have stepped into a scene from the Sound of Music. Think enchanted forests, toy town houses and a fairy-tale church. To get the best view, you will visit Bled castle - you can see right across the lake from here. However, spare some attention for the chateau itself. With its cone-shaped turrets, yard-thick walls and lofty parapets it is something special. Back on the shore, you pile into a rowing boat to glide over to the tiny island church. Legend has it if you make a wish as you ring the church bell, your wish just might come true.
