Located right in the middle of th Julian Alps, Bled is one of the most visited destinations in Slovenia. This little gem is situated only 45 minutes away from the Slovenian capital, Ljubljana, and offers everything a true travel and nature lover needs for a perfect day trip. Of course, Bled is mostly famous for its nearby Lake Bled with a tiny island in the middle. But, I can assure you, there is so much more to Bled and its surroundings than this beautiful lake.
