Bordering Italy to the west, Austria to the north, Croatia to the south and south east and Hungary to the northeast, Slovenia is a lovely jewel in the crown of south central Europe and full of delightful surprises.
One such surprise is the beautiful resort town of Bled (pronounced “Blet”) nestled in the Alpine region of the northwest.
This view of Bled Castle was taken from a row boat while crossing the pristine waters of Lake Bled.
Motorized boats are not allowed on the lake.
The stillness of the lake makes it a perfect training ground for Olympic rowing, and Bled has hosted the World Rowing Championships several times.
It’s worth a visit.
Thanks for stopping by.
