Bled and Bohinj

Culture and History tour in Ljubljana

Tour Price : on request Duration : 6-8 hours Languages: English

Visit one of the most beautiful parts of Slovenia in the heart of Julian Alps where two glacier lakes are set. Bled and Bohinj lakes are extremely popular among Slovenians. Is this because of many legends, among which the most famous about Črtomir and Bogomila, was written by our greatest poet France Prešeren or is it only because of natural beauties that surrounds this area. The best idea is to find it out on your own! The trip will start in front of your hotel and we will head via Kranj, Radovljica, Bled to Bohinj where we will have a short stop on the lakeside next to the church of st. John the Baptist from where we have a wonderful view to the lake and surroundings. After this we will drive to the cable car and we will take lift to the mount Vogel (1535m) from where we see almost all Julian Alps and of course – Bohinj lake from above. Stop in alpine hut for typical alpine meal and return in the valley and towards Bled. Upon arrival in Bled we will first visit the Bled castle from where we have glorious view of the lake with small island in the middle. After this, oarsmans with pletna boats will take us to the island where the church of st. Mary, originally from 8-9c., is set. On the island we will be able to ring the bell of wishes and discover legends told about the island and the surroundings. Any visit of Bled is not perfect without a stop and tasting of famous "kremšnita" cream cake and coffee with a spectacular view over the lake.
