With its emerald-green lake, picture-postcard church on an islet, a medieval castle clinging to a rocky cliff and some of the highest peaks of the Julian Alps and the Karavanke as backdrops, Bled is Slovenia’s most popular resort, drawing everyone from honeymooners lured by the over-the-top romantic setting to backpackers, who come for the hiking, biking, boating and canyoning possibilities.

Not surprisingly, Bled can be overpriced and swarming with tourists in mid-summer.

But as is the case with many popular destinations around the world, people come in droves – and will continue to do so – because the place is special.
