Although it is not the largest, nor the deepest, the lake bled, about 50 kilometers from Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, has become one of the most visited places in the country. It's almost on the border with Austria, and it's one of those special corners that we should all be able to travel to at least once in a lifetime. The perfect destination if you are planning a romantic getaway in couple.
Next to Lake Bled, there is the town of the same name. During the Middle Ages it had its importance, although today it goes unnoticed. It is the lake that captures all interest, for its beauty and spectacular of its landscapes.
Bled castle on a cliff
In the surroundings of the lake, in addition to mountains and lush forests, there are two monuments that you cannot miss if you visit us to these latitudes. Its about Bled Castle, the oldest in Slovenia, located by the lake on a 130 meter high cliff. The interiors take you directly to the Middle Ages, and the views They literally take your breath away, as impressive as they are. To get to the castle you can go up by car, or by taking a walk of about 15 or 20 minutes from the town. Despite the steepness of the road, this seems to me the most recommended option, since it will be a pleasure to enjoy the surroundings.
A fairy tale island
On the other hand, the church of the assumption It is another monument of interest. It was built in the XV century on a small island that there is in the center of the lake, and to which you will have to arrive by boat. Except in the coldest months, when the lake freezes, there are always wooden boats that come and go from the island transporting tourists.
