Romantic wedding at Bled Castle PDF Print E-mail

LakeBled_NATIONAL_GEOGRAPHICBled is the leading Alpine resort in Slovenia. Bled lake, church on the island and the old castle on  the rock over the lake make Bled one of the most beautiful tourist places in Europe. Natural beauties, historical sights and an attractive geographical position have made Bled a great and popular tourist spot.

 

Fairytale like beauty of Bled lake has magically attracted visitors for centuries. We could be citing travel writers, novelists, rulers and presidents but the nicest lines come from Slovenia's greatest poet France Prešeren (1880-1849) describing it in a heroic epic poem Baptism at Savica Fall.

 

The genuine pearl of Slovenia, lake Bled, lies at 500 meters above sea level. It is 2.120 meters long, 1.380 meters wide and 31 meters deep. It freezes during the coldest of winter days and has around 24°C during the summer. It is only 32 kilometers away from Ljubljana airport by car. Above lake Bled a cliff was formed and on its top there is one of the most beautiful monuments of Slovenia, the old castle from 18th century. Wedding at the Bled castle is one if the most romantic wedding ideas in the whole of Europe according to the experts.

 

Another Bled symbol is its island with chapel and Church of Virgin Mary’s Assumption. There is a legend about the chapel according to which hearing the bells ring will make your wish come true!
