Lake Bled and Lake Bohinj are two gorgeous, but different lakes in northwestern Slovenia. Both are part of the Julian Alps, coloured crystal blue and at about 30 metres deep. Lake Bohinj is a glacial lake within Triglav National Park, whereas Lake Bled is located next to the town of Bled, which is not only famous for its lake with the island, but also for its cream cake. The island that is surrounded by Lake Bled is called Bled Island. On the island several buildings – including the pilgrimage church dedicated to the assumption of Mary – can be found.

Not to miss: Get a Bled Cream Cake a Hotel Park (Cesta svobode 15, 4260 Bled) and enjoy the best view of Lake Bled from Ojstrica Hill (situated south-west of Lake Bled near Camping Bled).
