Bled is one of the most beautiful places in Slovenia. The fairy tale image of the island in the middle of the lake fascinates every visitor. It is especially magical on New Year’s Eve when you can do a bunch of interesting and pleasant things before entering into the New Year after midnight.

A trail around the lake is six kilometres long and suitable for everyone. By walking in the fresh alpine air you will charge your batteries and get ready for the longest night.
