The first settlement in Bled was formed in 600 AD but today's town began to form in the mid-19th century from the villages of Grad, Mlino, Rečica, Zagorice, and Želeče, which were encircling the lake. From this time, farmers began to sell land along the eastern lakeshore to for villas, and the villages of Grad, Zagorice, and Želeče began to merge. Bled was officially recognised as a town in 1960.
Bled offers visitors a wide range of sports activities (golf, fishing, and horseback-riding) and is a starting point for mountain treks and hikes, especially within nearby Triglav National Park. It has a handy Mercator supermarket to pick up a picnic lunch and good bus connections to the surrounding area.
