In 2004 Bled will celebrate an important anniversary: 1000 years since the first mention of Bled in the deed of gift with which Henry II bestowed Bled and its surroundings on the diocese of Brixen.
Lake Bled and its island, the castle and the town itself appear to us like a vision on every visit. A pleasant tale of outstanding natural bounteousness, sweetness and beauty.
You can swim or skate or row, or ring the bell in the little church on the island. You can enjoy one of the numerous events that take place here, or walk or run round the lake. These natural marvels have been given added distinction by the visits of crowned heads, great artists, the doctors who opened a sunny and airy health resort here, and the huge number of newlyweds who have taken their vows here.
Thanks to its natural characteristics, Bled is the ideal starting point for hiking tours (Soteska Vintgar, Pokluška Luknja, Jama pod Babjim Zobom). It is also appreciated around the world as a centre for business tourism.
The Bled area and the old towns in the vicinity offer active and culture-hungry visitors a wealth of pleasures and relaxation: Radovljica with its Beekeeping Museum, Kropa with the Blacksmith's Museum, Vrba (the birthplace of poet France Prešeren) and the rich cultural heritage of the villages below Mt Stol.
