Lake Bled

A picturesque alpine lake in Slovenia, renowned for its medieval castle perched atop a cliff and an iconic island with a centuries-old church.

Tips from the community

Beat the crowds by visiting Lake Bled in the winter. This quiet Slovenian town might seem rather sleepy once high season passes, but that makes it the perfect winter vacation retreat if you’re looking to spend some one-on-one time with nature. If you stare out into the water of Lake Bled, you’ll spot Bled Island, a tiny dot that’s home to both the Church of the Assumption and a museum. Take a gondola out to the island for a truly authentic experience with postcard-perfect views. When you’re back on the mainland, it’s only a 6km stroll around the entire lake, so if you’ve stuffed yourself silly at nearby rustic Gostilna Pri Planincu, it’s a beautiful and relatively easy walk. If possible, time the end of your stroll for sunset to watch the colours ripple across the water. When it comes to attractions, explore the oldest castle in Slovenia, try the famous cream cake made of vanilla cream and puff pastry, and check out the waterfall at nearby Vintgar Gorge.

    If I don't get to sip tea in Sri Lanka's hillside, read books in the Lake District, cozy up with Christmas lights in Zermatt, and watch grizzlies catch fish in Alaska before I die, I'm gonna *riot*. From the totally obtainable (White Sands National Park) to the obscure (Lofoten), here's my big, bad, do-before-I-die bucket list.
