We recommend to visitors, who are interested in
learning something more about Bled, to take a
sightseeing tour around this resort. Bled was
discovered by the tourists in the middle of the 19th
century, after a Swiss doctor, Mr.Arnold Rikli, had
built a climactic health centre there.
Bled is often mentioned as the pearl of the Alpine
region. It is unique with its emerald-green lake, a
church on the island in the middle of the lake and a
medieval castle from the 11th century, perched on a
cliff above the lake.
After a bus ride around the lake a guided tour of
Bled castle will start. Then you will be taken by
Bled's typical "pletna" boat to the island.
