    Bled Castle contains two museums, forge, chapel , cafe , souvenir shop and wine cellar along with at least three different WC facilities around the castle buildings. There are plenty of multilingual leaflets and sign boards explaining the history of the castle and the Bled region of Slovenia. It is open until 20:00hrs for most of the year and until 21:00hrs in June , July and August.

    The most beautiful view of the castle is from the lakeshore.

    Bled Castle holds a medieval festival on first weekend in June each year. With everything from fireaters to knights sword fighting it brings the castle to life.

    Beautiful view of the lake. However, very touristy.

    The walk up to Bled Castle and the Castle itself provides some spectacular views of Lake Bled and the public Lido below.

    Entry currently (June 2019) costs EUR 11 for adults. This includes a tour of the museum, the smithy and all other rooms.

    The castle is in excellent condition and the view over the lake is really exceptionally beautiful. Inside there is a beautiful terrace with a view of the lake and a restaurant. However, the prices there are correspondingly high due to the location.

    The castle is beautifully situated over the lake, unfortunately, the entrance is very expensive, so I did not go in.

    The oldest part of the castle is the Romanesque tower. In 1511 and 1690 earthquakes shook the region, which also affected the castle. As a result, further towers were built and the fortification strengthened. Later additions date from the Renaissance period. The buildings are located around an inner courtyard and are connected by stairs. The chapel in the upper courtyard dates from the 16th century, but was restored in the 17th century and frescoed. The castle has a drawbridge that spans the upstream moat. The residential buildings are in the upper part of the courtyard and the farm buildings in the lower part.
    The interior of the castle now serves as a museum and restaurant.

    There are some really cool climbs up to the castle if you go off the beaten path - much better than the common route. The entry fee was quite expensive so we didn't go in.

    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.

    Those who want to go to the castle should be aware that entry is not free. In return you get access to the museum - but in my opinion this is rather uninteresting. In the end, admission only allows you to enjoy a great view.
