This morning meet your guide and driver for a full day exploration of Bled and Bohinj. Sheltered by picturesque mountains, lies the romantic town of Bled. With the dramatic backdrop of Julian Alps and medieval Bled castle, enjoy the fairytale settings of Bled. Take pleasure in the pletna boat ride and discover the dreamy islet that reigns in the middle of the lake. For centuries now, its charm has made it a symbol of the town of Bled, mentioned for the first time a thousand years ago. That is where the ancient Slavs worshipped Živa, goddess of love and fertility. Your guide will take you for a walk around the islet where you will visit the baroque Church of the Assumption. Ring its legendary bell and your wishes will come true! Then you will visit the beautiful Bled Castle, which the oldest castle in the country. Perched atop a steep cliff, the castle is the premier attraction of this area and today you will get a chance to explore its rich cultural legacy. Enjoy the spectacular view over the lake and the mountains before you guide and driver take you to Bohinj. Bohinj is an idyllic alpine valley surrounded by an amphitheatre of mountains reflected in the crystal-clear lake. The legend about Bohinj says that the gods thought of it as the most beautiful part of the world. So when the gods were dividing the world among people, there was a small group standing by the side and not struggling to get to the front. The gods took pity of them, seeing how patient and modest they were. Therefore they gave them the most beautiful part of their own world. That part is now called Bohinj – after God, who is called “boh” by the local people. Today you will discover the natural beauty of green forests, meadows and friendly villages of the valley, all overshadowed by the sombre face of high mountains. You will take a cable car ride to the mountain Vogel (5.000 ft), from where there is a spectacular view of the lake and the Julian Alps. You will continue the ride through the Lower Valley of Bohinj, where you will discover the old alpine village of Stara Fuzina. This picturesque village hides a unique dairy museum, which preserves the original equipment for dairy production. The items exhibited tell the story of the life of the alpine herdsmen, the work in the mountains; Bohinj’s pastures and settlements. Your hosts will prepare a cheese tasting for you in the unique atmosphere of an old alpine cottage. Afterwards, your guide and driver will take you back to your hotel.
