The picturesque town of Bled in Slovenia sits on the site of a glacier that melted eons ago leaving a beautiful valley and a unique little lake with a tiny island in the middle. Bled lies in the north-west of Slovenia nestling at the base of the Julian and Karavanke Alps close to the 2 rivers flowing through.

The town can be reached very easily as Slovenia has borders with four other countries, Italy, Austria, Hungary and Croatia.

The nearest airports are in Ljubljana, about 36km away and just over the border in Austria about 70km away. The nearest train station is 4 km with numerous connections running from Villach in Austria to Athens. There are buses running regularly from Ljubljana and all other towns in Slovenia.
