Bled Castle

"A room with a view"

Bled Castle is one of the oldest castles in Slovenia (1011). The image of the castle towering above the lake and the romantic island with it's church is a picture suitable for framing. We couldn't stop staring at the view both day and night. Having had a room with a view and a double terrace certainly helped.

The castle's buildings are spread across two courtyards which lie on different levels. There is a printshop, gallery, a shop which sells honey products and known as the castle "beehive". There is also a tower, museum (which tells the history of the Bled area) , a memorial room, and a 16th century chapel.

The courtyards are protected by a Roman defense wall featuring a battlement, a gate tower and a huge Gothic defense tower.


One word...breathtaking.
