The beautiful lakeside resort of Bled is close to three ski centres, the closest Straza is right above the old town, but has more limirted terrain than better known Kobla and Vogel ski areas, 30 minutes drive away ( free ski bus for lift pass holders ) . Straza does have noight-skiing however so is worth considering for an aprés - ski - ski.

Bled offers a great choice of sports and leisure facilities, as well as historic and interesting buildings and excursions over the border into Italy or Austria (both only 45km/28 miles away), to the capital Ljubliana or even over to Venice. In the town itself the Casino is a major attraction, open from 24 hours a days. Other indoor attractions include a cinema, bowling alley and swimming complex. Many of the hotels also have indoor pools, some of them incorporating the local thermal springs. Water temperature in the thermal baths in the covered swimming pool at Hotel Toplice is 23 degrees Celsius, whilst in Hotels Golf, Park and Jelovica it is heated to 28 C. The skating rink is open from July to March. Recreational skating takes place three times a day. Curling is also possible and in winter it is a real pleasure to skate or go curling on the frozen lake. But make sure you ask whether the ice is safe before you venture out! The Grand Hotel Toplice and the Park, Krim, Jelovica and Ribno Hotels offer sauna, solariums and massage. Turkish baths are also available in the Golf and Jelovica Hotels. Fitness is part of the services at the Golf, Jelovica and Ribno Hotels and exercise is also possible at the Bio Fit fitness center in Koritno. Art lovers will find two interesting galleries to visit in the town. The Svetina Gallery houses work by Tone Svetina, a writer and sculptor, containing exhibits of his sculptures made from steel, old weapons and cannon fragments on an open area in front of his house at Mlinska Cesta 10, Bled. Svetina is well known as a writer of anti-war novels. Both in his writing and his sculpting he remains loyal to his vision of the existence of humanity and brotherhood between nations. His sculptures warn about new catastrophes and wars. Visits are free of charge. The Vila Nana Gallery contains a permanent collection of art by Slovenian and Croatian painters. Again admission is free. There are numerous historic monuments to visit in the area. One of the most interesting is The Church of the Assumption on the Island. According to local legend the temple of an ancient Slavic goddess stood there before the current Baroque church. The temple disappeared during battles between the followers of the pagan religion and Christians, who destroyed the altar and built a church.

"Bled" by any other name

The Slovenian resort is also known as Bled and has common misspellings:

The direction which the various Bled slopes face can make or break your ski holiday. To guarantee good snow conditions, choose a resort with piste which face the right way for the time of year you're travelling.

- In the coldest winter months of January and February pick a resort with sunny south facing slopes, so your days on the snow doesn't feel like a polar expedition. Conversely, in the warmest spring skiing months of March and especially April, a resort with cool and shady north facing trails will ensure you're not riding on slush, but benefitting from best late season snow. The best destinations have areas which face in all directions so that you're guaranteed greating conditions whatever the weather. Bled has slopes facing NW SE E.
