Ljubljana, Bus Ride to Lake Bled

Lake Bled Slovenia

There was another dreary start to the day but at least it wasn’t raining and after another excellent breakfast where I was even tempted to sample the bottled beetroot juice (and promptly wished I hadn’t) we decided to take another bus journey out of the city and to Slovenia’s most popular tourist destination, Lake Bled.

  1. I just saw a travel program on TV about Ljubljana, and I loved it!! Looks like a place I’d really enjoy visiting. Thanks for this post.


  2. Interesting details,engaging writing as always and your special reference to the dissolved Yugoslavia very informative,indeed,a recipe for disaster.
    Besides, your witty remark on the wedding tradition was so hilariously written that I am still laughing while writing my comment….


  3. I loved Lake Bled, one of the best places I saw in Slovenia. Your post invoked some very happy memories, but I never knew about the custom from the Church of Assumption. It looks like I will be told to go there again soon enough…


  4. Thanks for your comment on my blog – I thought I’d have a look at yours…
    I visited Bled several years ago; I don’t remember much about it except that in the castle there was a painting of Bodiam Castle which is about twenty minutes from my home in England! I really liked the stories about the church!
    I’d love to visit Slovenia again, I thought it was a beautiful country, from the little I saw.


  5. Hi Andrew
    Yes, Bled is a rather lovely spot.
    On your next visit, I’d recommend you continue past Bled to Bohinj, right at the foot of the mountains and if anything even more beautiful.
