Slovenia: Bled Castle & Lake Bled
A spectacular alpine lake in the Julian Alps, Lake Bled has a picture perfect medieval castle that is perched high on a cliff over the water that usually makes all the “visit Slovenia” postcards. The castle dates back to 10th century and sits almost improbably on a cliff over the lake shore. The views of the lake from the castle walls are spectacular. Also not to be missed is the church of Sveti Martin right next to the castle in the lake shore below.
