Welcome to the enchanting realm of Bled Lake

Just 200 km away from Zagreb in northern Slovenia, lies a breathtaking fairy-tale world waiting to be explored. Welcome to the enchanting realm of Bled Lake. Nestled amidst the picturesque foothills of the Alps, this extraordinary lake and its surroundings offer a captivating blend of natural beauty and cultural heritage. Whether you're seeking tranquility or adventure, Bled Lake has something to offer everyone.

The singular Slovenian island

At the heart of this idyllic lake stands the singular Slovenian island, accessible only by boat. Here, you'll encounter the Pletna boatmen, continuing a time-honored tradition that dates back to 1590. These skilled artisans, who have passed down their craft through generations, ferry visitors to the island on traditional wooden boats called Pletnas. Their expertise and connection to the lake run deep, ensuring a memorable journey.

The Church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Upon reaching the island, you'll discover the Church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Legends suggest that this sacred site once housed a temple dedicated to the Slavic goddess. However, it was later destroyed during conflicts with local Pagans and replaced by a Christian church. Over the centuries, the church underwent several renovations, culminating in its current Baroque architectural splendor. Step inside to marvel at the opulent gold-covered altar and the towering 54-meter bell tower. Among the church's notable features is the "wishing bell" known as Zvono želja, affixed to a wooden beam. Its presence stems from a romantic yet tragic tale.

Poliksena, a grief-stricken widow, devoted her wealth to crafting a gold bell in honor of her late husband. However, a violent storm claimed the boat carrying the bell and the boatmen, plunging it into the depths of the lake. Overwhelmed by sorrow, Poliksena took a religious oath and became a nun in Rome until the end of her days. Upon hearing her story, the Pope sent a replacement bell to the island, which echoes its melodious chime to this day. Locals claim that on peaceful nights, one can still hear the mournful ring of the original bell emanating from the dark depths of Lake Bled.

The 99 steps

After a captivating boat journey, a short stairway leads to the church, where ascending the 99 steps and ringing the bell is believed to pay homage to the Virgin Mary and grant the fulfillment of one's greatest wish. It's an endeavor worth undertaking! This enchanting island is also a favored location for weddings, where a local tradition dictates that the groom must carry his bride up these steps, symbolizing a long and successful marriage.

Bled Castle - panorama of the lake, the church, and the distant Alps

Overlooking this idyllic island and its magical church stands Bled Castle, perched majestically on a cliff top. As Slovenia's oldest castle, its origins can be traced back to 1011, mentioned in the writings of King Henrik II. Today, the castle houses an interactive museum that brings the history of Bled and its surroundings to life through captivating multimedia exhibits. Take a step back in time and explore the fascinating world of the 16th-century Gutenberg printing press, meticulously reconstructed for visitors' enjoyment. From the castle's lofty vantage point, you can feast your eyes on a truly magnificent panorama of the lake, the church, and the distant Alps. Delight in the delectable local cuisine offered at the castle restaurant while savoring this breathtaking view—a feast for both the senses and the soul.

Ljubljana, the vibrant capital of Slovenia

No visit to this captivating landscape would be complete without a journey to Ljubljana, the vibrant capital of Slovenia. Boasting a rich history that traces back to Roman times, the city's charm and cultural treasures never fail to captivate its visitors. Ljubljana's central square is dedicated to France Prešern, a renowned poet whose poem "Zdravljica" serves as Slovenia's national anthem.

Seven bridges crossing the serene Ljubljanica River

The city is adorned with seven bridges crossing the serene Ljubljanica River, each with its own unique character. The iconic Tromostovje Bridge, comprising three smaller bridges, has become a beloved symbol of the city. The Mesar's Bridge, known as a bridge for couples, allows visitors to hang padlocks and symbolize their eternal love by tossing the key into the water below. The Šuštar Bridge, with its twelve magnificent stone pillars, stands as one of Ljubljana's oldest bridges. However, it is the legendary Dragon Bridge, adorned with imposing dragon statues, that truly captures the imagination. According to local folklore, the bridge commemorates the Greek hero Jazon, who vanquished a fierce dragon on his way to Ljubljana.

Immerse yourself in the stunning 360° view of the city and its surrounding mountains

To truly appreciate Ljubljana, venture up the hill to the Ljubljana Castle, where you'll find a captivating museum and a chapel dedicated to St. Jurij, the city's patron saint. Immerse yourself in the stunning 360° view of the city and its surrounding mountains—an experience that will leave an indelible mark on your memory. Don't forget to explore the famous Tivoli Town Park and marvel at the splendid architecture scattered throughout the city. Take your time to wander through the streets, admiring the exquisite Town Hall and the Church of St.Nicholas.

Commitment to the environment and eco-friendliness

Ljubljana embraces modernity while cherishing its commitment to the environment and eco-friendliness. The city center is celebrated as a car-free zone, fostering a sense of community and creating a welcoming atmosphere along its main thoroughfares and charming side streets.

This modern and vibrant city serves as a melting pot of art movements and stands as a testament to the harmonious coexistence of contemporary art and the pristine natural surroundings. The warm and hospitable citizens take great pride in preserving their city for future generations and extending a warm welcome to visitors.

Visit Slovenia

A visit to Slovenia is not complete without immersing yourself in the beauty of Bled Lake and discovering the captivating charms of Ljubljana.

Testimonials & reviews

Tripadvisor review Oct 2018.

We just got back from the trip to the Plitvice Lakes, a tour offered by Permansio Tours. It includes a stop at Rastoke, full lunch and tickets to the park, so you can skip standing in line to buy, you get the pre-purchased tickets and go in. There are a few company’s that offer the same trip or very similar, but here’s why I think Permansio is the best.

As mentioned, the owner of the company was our driver today, and he is a great guide! Very knowledgeable and friendly. We actually feel like we made a new friend here today. If you are into learning more of the culture and history of the area, and going to the Plitvice National Park, we highly recommend this company.

They pick up and drop off at your hotel. The relationship with this company and the restaurant is very good, and we felt like we were treated like family.

The customers who book with Permansio are their top priority.

We had a great time and we would use this company for any and all tours when we come back to Zagreb and surrounding area.
