The Legend of Lake Bled

They say that there was once a pasture where Bled Lake is today. In the daytime, it was grazed by sheep and during the night, the fairies who lived on a hill in the middle of the lake danced on it. The hill was covered by the softest grass, which was always nibbled on by the voracious sheep. The fairies asked the shepherds to put up a fence, but they only laughed. When the youngest and prettiest of the fairies tripped and cut herself on the sharp rocks while performing a fairy dance, the fairies were enraged. They called waters onto Lake Bled, which covered the meadow and created an everlasting natural “fence” around the fairy hill. Thus the meadow became a lake and the hill became an island on which fairies still dance on starry nights, according to the legend.

Childhood memories of Bled

All of us who were lucky enough to have visited Bled as children share some images that have become an indelible part of our memory: the first steps when exploring the lake shore, the first ride in a pletnja boat, the first feeding of the swans, the first cream cake, the first blissful smile with powdered sugar around the lips ... and mother's eyes full of emotion. Wonderful memories that every parent wishes for his or her child. Bled is an ideal destination for a one-day family trip or a longer vacation with babies, toddlers, school-aged children and teenagers. The climate is mild, it is never too hot and a shade and a cool place are always close by, and there is enough fun for all family members, whatever their taste. Bring your family to Bled for a day!

Feel Lake Bled from a boat

You cannot truly experience Lake Bled until you have sailed on it in a boat! You can choose between a ride in the traditional pletna boat or row to the island with a church by yourself. Both ways have their own special charms and both are worth experiencing! Hand-made wooden boats are available for rent at the boathouse of Grand Hotel Toplice, where you can even order a picnic basket to take with you on a romantic date in the middle of the lake!
