So I stayed in Lake Bled for two weeks In june and had the most amazing time and wedding there ever. I had very high expectations due to constantly looking at photos of it for the past few years and it exceeded every single one... the photos just dont do it justice.
We got to see a fair bit of Slovenia and it has become my favourite country by far. It really is such a beautiful country and everyone was so friendly and nice.
I have travelled a fair bit previously but mainly have been on city breaks and beach type holidays. I had always wanted to try a lakes and mountains holidays and me and my family found this to be our ideal sort of holiday so looking at booking next years holiday we want to do another lakes and mountains holiday.
The obvious thing to do would be to book for Lake Bled again, but although we definitely will be returning in a few years we really want to visit and experience different places but the problem is that I cant seem to find anywhere that is comparable to Lake Bled.... or Slovenia in general. We loved the fairytale lake that we could walk all the way around, with the castle on the cliffs and the island in the middle. We loved the summer toboganning and the excellent excursions available, and most of all Slovenias turqoise/emerald lakes with the snow topped mountains all around.
I have been looking at the lakes on offer in crystal and thomson but nothing is really standing out too much. I guess I am just looking for another countrys version of Lake Bled or a lake destination that has a similar feeling to it. I would really appreciate any suggestions
