Bled is a somewhat remote lake in the Slovenian Alps. It is well known within the country and in neighboring Austria, yet not so much in other parts of the world. The lake itself is quite small, but the views and the surroundings are spectacular. There is a small island with a church in the middle of the lake making for a great panorama. Also there is a castle on a steep hill making the view even more memorable. The town itself is lovely as well, with a nice promenade and many caffes to enjoy a famous cream cake from Bled while enjoying the views.
