Hop over to Slovenia to view one of Europe’s most photographed spots!
Slovenia’s Lake Bled is truly stunning. Set in a pine forest with a mountain scenery backdrop, Lake Bled is can't-believe-your-eyes-pretty and it rightfully deserves its name as ‘’the Pearl of Alps’’. All snow-capped mountains and glass-like waters, it's home to Slovenia's only island - and there's more than a touch of the Austrian Alps about it. In fact at first glance you'll think you've stepped into a scene from the Sound of Music.
Think of enchanted forests, toy town houses and a fairytale church. To get the best view, you'll visit Bled castle - you can see right across the lake from here. But spare some attention for the chateau itself. With its cone-shaped turrets, yard-thick walls and lofty parapets it's something special. Back on the shore, you pile into a rowing boat to glide over to the tiny island church.
Legend has it if you make a wish as you ring the church bell, your wish just might come true.
