Why Bled as a destination?
13. 10. 2017
Easily accessible destination with facilities all within walking distances
Bled is located at the foot of the Julian Alps in Northeast Slovenia and near to both the Austrian and Italian borders. It is highly accessible, being just 30 minutes from the capital Ljubljana and a quick drive from Slovenia’s International Airport. Its accessible location makes it the perfect starting point to explore the beauties of the Alpine Region, or to combine it with a visit to the Mediterranean Region and the Adriatic Sea. Once in Bled, the distances between the town’s facilities are all within walking distance.
Hospitable and safe
Slovenia is traditionally known for the warm welcome it gives to visitors. Historically, visitors were welcomed with bread and wine as soon as they walked off the train, but nowadays the hospitability is more often shown in friendly service at the utmost professional level. Bled is also a very safe destination to travel to.
Rich in history, first-rate facilities
Bled's rich history, dating back as far as 1004, took it to the forefront of Alpine cosmopolitan destinations. Many events have found their home in Bled and return there year after year. Today, Bled can host events for up to 550 delegates, with first-rate meetings and accommodation facilities all within walking distance. Special venues and gourmet cuisine all make Bled a very special experience.

Green and Authentic
In the Bled of today ‘Green’ and ‘Authentic’ are the key buzzwords. The Municipality of Bled has adopted the Zero Waste strategy, the service providers the “Green Scheme” strategy, and the awareness of the importance of sustainability whilst preserving the authentic is visible on every corner in Bled.
