People who don’t believe in fairy tales have obviously never heard of Lake Bled. With just one look you get the impression of myths, magic, royalty and other surreal ideas. Just head towards the Julian Alps, northwest of Slovenia to experience a popular and otherworldly tour.
One of the most fascinating sight in this tourist destination is the small and peaceful island in the middle of Lake Bled called Bled Island. At first sight, that island might seem a little lonely and sad, but it actually isn’t. A church was built during the end of the 17th century, it was dedicated to the Assumption of Mary and it had Gothic frescos and Baroque equipment. Presently, weddings can be held here and it happens quite regularly. It’s even considered good luck for the groom if he carries the bride all the way up through the 98 stone steps that leads to the top.
