Bled is encircled by the Julian Alps and natural forests. There is a medieval castle over 1000 years old which stands above the lake. In the center of the lake is Bled Island, a natural island right in the heart of the lake, where stands the Pilgrimage Church of the Assumption of Mary built in the 15th century. There is a stairway from the base of the lake with 99 steps leading up to the church which is adorned with a 52-meter tower. You can ring the bell in the center of the church. The bell doesn’t ring for everyone; legend has it that, that if it rings for you, while making a wish, it will be granted.
I'd recommend anyone to come, at least one time, to Bled, make a complete circle of cca 5 kilometers round the lake, and then, of course, to visit the island and the castle..
And finally go grab a bite of Bled's Rezine (cake )!!!!!
