Bled is most popular destination in Slovenia and become Travelers' Choice® 2010 Winner at TripAdvisor. Thanks to its placid fairytale lake and island, this small town is the top choice for travelers who want to spend relaxing holidays in Slovenia. The castle is perched 120 meters on a craggy cliff on the northern shore. Bled today is a modern resort with many hotels, private apartments and various local and foreign culinary delights. It is especially renowned for the delicious “kremsnita”, a local sweet. Bled is also famous as a rowing and boat race center. It is the starting point for numerous trips and walks into the beautiful areas surrounding Bled. On the island you can take a typical “pletna” boat which is steered with only one oar and accommodates about 20 tourists. In the church on the island is the famous “wishing bell” manufactured in 1543. If you make a secret wish, it will come true when you ring the bell.
