A short vacation in Slovenia, Castle of Bled (2nd day)
On the 2nd day in the morning me and my girlfriend walked into the city center of Bled which was about 2 km far away from our apartment. We had a good caffee and we tried the famous Bled cream cake alias Blejska kremšnita. Mmmm. Try it if you go to Bled for vacation. After our coffee break we went to the Castle of Bled … or rather I should say we "climbed up" … a lot of stairs.
If you are not so active, you have the chance to go to the castle by car or by taxi. If you go up the stairs it’s more tiring but the view is more beautiful.
This castle is more than 1.000 years old and it’s located in 130 m height above the lake Bled. It’s worth going up to the castle because the view is breathtaking. You can admire the mountains and the lake from this height.
In the afternoon we visited the beach on the west side of the lake Bled. It was hard to find a parking lot and quite expensive but the beach had no entry fee, it was free. We wanted to swim in the lake, but the weather was not so hot, so we passed this opportunity. But we walked into the water, so our legs were wet … It's like going for a swim, isn't it? :)
