Bled & Bohinj Lakes: Discover our heritage with a guide
Meeting point: Bled
Bled is known for the glacial Lake Bled. It is an important convention centre and tourist resort, offering a wide range of sports activities (golf, fishing, and horseback-riding). It is a starting point for mountain treks and hikes, especially within nearby Triglav National Park. A small island in the middle of the lake is home to Assumption of Mary Pilgrimage Church; visitors frequently ring its bell for good luck. Human traces from prehistory have been found on the island. Before the church was built, there was a temple consecrated to Živa, the Slavic goddess of love and fertility. One can get to the island on a traditional flat-bottomed wooden boat (Slovenian: pletna). The island on Lake Bled has 99 steps. Overall it is a beautiful opportunity to witness natures wonders and a cultural heritage that has developed over hundreds of years.
Lake is located in a glacial valley and it comprises almost 100 million cubic metres of water – according to an old Bohinj joke: no more than a bucket if it is large enough. The steeply descending lake basin is relatively smoothly shaped and has no shallow areas. In summer, the temperature of the water rises to 22 °C and it is suitable for swimming.
