• Lake Bled - the best place for those who love peace and quiet of
From Venice to the Slovenian capital of Ljubljana, about 250 kilometers, and still need to drive 50 kilometers to get to the small town of Bled, which is located in the Julian Alps near the Austrian border.
Bled - Slovenia is a tourist mecca. It is situated on the banks of a beautiful mountain Lake Bled. The perfect place for those who prefer peace and quiet, as well as for outdoor enthusiasts.
At dawn I went to Mount Low Osoynitsa. From there a magnificent view of the lake and the Church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary, located on an island in the middle of Lake Bled. Turn after turn "tropinochnogo" serpentine, and 15 minutes later I was on the observation deck.
Somewhere I read that due to the specific climate in the summer is always sunny, but it's not my case. In front of me, instead of the dawn of the sun were dark clouds in the sky.
In one of the banks of the lake on a cliff 130 meters high, more than 1,000 years worth of Bled Castle.
After breakfast, we go up to him ... In the parking lot is still a sufficient number of seats, but the tourist buses arrive one by one.
The first sensation - I was in the Tallinn fortress. The architecture of a hair's breadth
From the walls of the castle is also a beautiful view of the lake from a height of breathtaking.
The castle itself is very small. It has a café-restaurant, museum, blacksmith shop, a printing house and a wine cellar.
Standard, in general, a set of similar attractions.
After strolling through the castle, its cellars and a coin minted in memory ...
... went down to stroll along the promenade, take a boat ride and feed the fish.
I would love to go fishing here, but for this, they say, you need a license.
Looking at the turquoise crystal clear waters of the lake, I could not help but still bathed, despite not being the warmest weather and the absence of comers. For me as a comfortable temperature, though considerably cooler Adriatic.
Bled - the place is really unique and beautiful, it must be seen. But stay here any longer than a couple of days, I would not. To people at least for a week but stayed here permanently arrange any sporting and cultural events, especially in summer.
