We arrived later in the day, and we knew the weather was supposed to turn bad the next day, so we walked around the lake as soon as we arrived. Lake Bled is a glacial lake, but that didn’t stop people from swimming and participating in other water sports. The Julian Alps surround the lake.
There are two main points of interest: the church on the island in the middle of the lake and the castle on the hill. You can take a boat to the island, but you have to walk up the hill to get to the castle. We did both, even though I insisted I wasn’t going to climb anymore hills!
On our 5 km walk around the lake, we came across a “Glampground”. Basically, it was ghetto camping, but you could rent little A-frame cabins and even tents. I enjoyed looking at the European campers..
Service station, with a special “bar” for dogs.
We worked up an appetite, and found our way to a pizzeria behind the castle. Yes, we did climb all the way up from the shore-line the next day.
The weather forecast was accurate, and it started to rain the next day, but we still went to the island and climbed to the castle.
This was the last day of our tour. The weather guided us on our next path. We decided to spend an extra day in Lake Bled. We had planned to head back to the Croatian coast, but the weather wasn’t with us. Stay tuned!
