“On its way to the Sava, the Radovna River carved a deep gorge, which is today one of the most popular excursion points in the immediate vicinity of Bled. The Vintgar Gorge is half a second kilometer long, up to 100 meters deep, and its walls narrow in places. We walk through nice wooden galleries, just a few meters above the water.

“Straza is a 634-metre hill above the beautiful Lake Bled. A chairlift takes visitors to its peak (€4 for adults, €2 for children 6–14 y.o.), from where stunning views of the lake, the castle and the surrounding mountains of the Slovenian Alps unfold. The beautiful forest on top of Straza hill is also the setting of the Bled Adventure Park, which offers visitors the chance to enjoy a range of adrenaline-pumping activities. For an additional rush of adrenaline, the summer sledding track takes guests back to the valley. ”
