Beautiful Lake Bled, Slovenia

Pin It!
A very Happy New Year to everyone and I hope that 2013 has been a good year so far! As this is my first post of the year, a pretty post is in order. :)

My hubby and I love going on holidays and one of the things we look out for when we are tired of visiting cities are places with gorgeous scenery, one that will blow our socks off and Lake Bled did just that!
Lake Bled is a glacial lake in the Julian Alps in northwestern Slovenia and is situated just next to the town Bled. It makes for a nice and relaxing holiday, walking around the lake, climbing the hills, taking in the very fresh air and of course eating the famous Traditional Sweet Cream Cake.

Here's an interesting tradition. There's a 99 step stairway that leads up to the church on the Island and traditionally it's considered good luck for the groom to carry his bride up the 99 steps on their wedding day before ringing the bell and making a wish inside the church.

So why not consider visiting Lake Bled on your next holiday? The scenery alone is well worth the trip!
