How To Get There?

Bled lies in the north-west part of Slovenia, at the foothills of the Julian Alps and near the confluence of the rivers Sava Bohinjka and Sava Dolinka. It is accessible all year round.

If you travel to Slovenia using public transport, we recommend combining it with the shuttle transport to the final destination in Bled.
