Many visitors to Slovenia say they’ve never seen a more beautiful lake than Bled … that is, until they’ve seen Lake Bohinj, just 26km to the southwest. We’ll refrain from weighing in on Bled vs Bohinj debate other than to say we see their point. Admittedly, Bohinj lacks Bled’s glamour, but it’s less crowded and in many ways more authentic.
With its emerald-green lake, picture-postcard church on an islet, a medieval castle clinging to a rocky cliff and some of the highest peaks of the Julian Alps and the Karavanke as backdrops, Bled is Slovenia's most popular resort, drawing everyone from honeymooners lured by the over-the-top romantic setting to backpackers, who come for the hiking, biking, boating and canyonin.
