Lake Bled with its island is one of Slovenia’s most recognisable landmarks. You will need approximately an hour to walk around the lake which is one of the most popular walks in Slovenia.
We carried out this tour of the lake (about 6 Kms long) in December, and we found it really scenic; I can assume that it is even more so in the summer, when the trees and lawns are green instead of being bare or covered by snow. The most obvious trailhead (which we took in a clockwise direction) is where the main access road to Bled, Ljublijanska Cesta, encounters the lake. We are here almost at the extreme east of the lake itself. The path here has the appearance of a city lakefront. If you proceed in a clockwise direction, you will soon arrive to round a promontory, which hides from those who walk the view of the town from which it started, and for some time also from the "Grad" (castle) which looms over the north-east bank of the lake. Here are also the last lunch options, up to Camping Bled (see below). The path then turns sharply westward, and the shore of the lake becomes almost uninhabited. The only exception to this desert is "Vila Bled", a sumptuous building of Austro-Hungarian origin, later extensively transformed by the kings of Yugoslavia, and finally by President Tito, now a luxury hotel (the moment we passed, it was closed for renovation). The wilder part (relatively speaking) of the route follows, and at the same time it allows you to admire the island more closely. On the south-west corner you will walk even on a wooden walkway at the edge of the lake, lying almost on the water surface. The small gulf which follows to the west, at Camping Bled, appears a little more lively even in the winter season (obviously in the other seasons it could be crowded). The path then becomes lonely again on the north side, passing under the cliff on which the castle stands; closing the circle and approaching the town, it changes its character again. The path is perfectly flat, as far as I remember accessible also to strollers. And it is - of course - very recommendable.

A significant technological achievement, built in the second half of the 18th century by the Baron Žiga Zois. The bridge crossing the Mostnica river was a challenging construction undertaking. It was built in a single arch of hewn stone and placed over the deep gorge. There is a legend that bridge was built by a devil.
