In the summer the rivers are cool and the lakeside, supervised pools, are warm for bathing. In the winter it is crisp, dry and cold. Some winters the lake freezes and Bled is engulfed in snow, The snow capped Julian Alps are the background to this fairytale scenery. Slovenes are well known for their love of the outdoors and this is the perfect starting off point for days of fun, surrounded by the outstanding scenery of Triglav National Park.
