The lake has a small island, the island of Bled, where is located the church of S. Maria Assunta, reachable by boats rented on site. The lake you can walk on a comfortable path, walking in about 1 hour and a half. On top of a rock faces a medieval castle. All very characteristic and spectacular, but few parking and pay.
Paesaggisticamente bellissimo. Con un paio di giorni a disposizione si possono fare anche belle escursioni a piedi o in bici.

For the lazy is duty the tour in Pletna and a stroll on the lakefront. Wherever you turn you have a nice view. Everyone speaks fluent English. Many also Italian.
Paradise! Over there you can enjoy the nature and feel the fresh air!! Also you can make some water sports or rent a bicycle. However if you want to climb in to the top of the mountain in order to see the amazing view it’s little bit dangerous.
Lake Bled is absolutely stunning. I visited in summer, when temperatures were high and snow on the mountains sparse. Luckily the lake provides many opportunities for cooling down. When in town, you should definitely rent a boat and go for a row to the island on the lake. Also be sure to stroll around the shore, stopping often for photos. The restaurants in town also have a great variety of cuisines, with many being vegetarian friendly.
