    Description

    Perched on the edge of the Julian Alps, close to the Triglav National Park, lies the town of Bled, best known for its glacial lake. In the lakes centre is an island where for generations pilgrims have crossed its waters to ring the bell in the idyllic 15th-century church. The New Year celebrations include live music and stalls on the shore where people gather to watch the midnight fireworks, reflected in the tranquil waters of the lake.

    During your stay you will visit Ljubljana, with its three bridges, & witness the serene beauty of the Triglav National Park in winter with a cable car ride above Lake Bohinj. Also travel via a spectacular mountain pass to neighbouring Austria, and you will admire the natural beauty of the Postojna caves, easily reached by a thrilling train ride, as well as enjoying a dressage performance of the famous white stallions in Lipica.
