Weekly Photo Challenge: On Top
How lovely! This challenge allows me to expand upon my last post A Moment in Bled, Slovenia
On a rocky precipice 130m above glacial Lake Bled sits Bled Castle ~ a mighty medieval stronghold.
The castle was first mentioned in a charter dating back to 1011 AD, and was referred to as castellum Veldes (the castle on the cliff). It was built with an upper and lower courtyard and is the oldest such structure in Slovenia.
The reason for its location is obvious.
From atop the cliff you can keep a watch for the enemy, all while enjoying a cup of tea and taking in the glorious scenery.
Thanks for visiting,
