Bled Castle

The castle stands high above the lake

The castle on a cliff stands high above the lake.

You can climb steep paths from the lakeside, or you can walk the longer but safer way by the ordinary road. I'd recommend the long road in the autumn when the paths are covered with soapy leaves.

It is well worth a visit, and the ticket costs but 5.5 euro (in 2002). The view is breathtaking, and in the summer you can enjoy it with service outside. However the view from the restaurant's panorama windows is excellent too.

The castle dates back before year 1000 and is now a museum. Previously the local landlord lived here.
