For sheer hypnotic beauty nothing beats Lake Bled. Surrounded by the
snow capped peaks of the Alps this pristine village is magical.
In Slovenia, you can experience amazing contrasts in the same day: a
morning swim in the Adriatic, followed two hours later by skiing below
Alpine peaks, then an adventurous discovery of Karst subterranean phenomena
and an invigorating bath in a thermal spring; an encounter with history
in a lively mediaeval city and, not far away, a more solitary stroll
through primeval forests or undulating, winegrowing hills.
To the left, among
Bled area ranks first. The castle, dating back to 1111, and the "pletna" rowing-boats
are two of the many attractions.
