We have just had the most enjoyable holiday in Bled, Slovenia.
I stayed at Penzion Zaka which is a twenty minute walk on the other side of the lake from the town; next door to the Rowing Club. We were there at the end of May and it was warm enough to swim in the lake. Wished i had a pair of swimming goggles.
Bled is a picture postcard town on a lake with a church on an island in the middle and surrounded by mountains. Penzion Zaka was a gold mine find; it overlooks the lake and the church from its spacious liveable rooms; we had a balcony overlooking the lake .Breakfast is very generous and you can also opt for the full board and get lunch or dinner for an extra 13 euros.
The food at Penzion Zaka is top quality; the chef Sandi never failed to amaze us. The staff are helpful and flexible to meet your wants/desires. There are lots of opportunities for exercise; walking or cycling around the lake or to the gorge.
Bled Jezero is a train station: a short but heart-pumping climb above Zaka and the train ride to Nova Gorica (Slo) is very scenic and you can get to Venice, Treviso or Trieste by catching a bus across the border to Gorizia (Italy). Ljublijana (capital city) is an hour away by bus or train and it’s definitely worth a visit. Hint: free walking tour www.ljublanafreetour.com
I could go on and on... friendly people who can speak English, a 24hour fresh milk vending machine (B.Y.O. o.5Litre or 1L screw capped bottle) outside Triglav National Park Information Centre Building, free Wi-Fi internet in Penzion Zaka dining room – we went for 4 days and loved it so much we stayed 10.
