Lake Bled

I’m having trouble posting to the blog so please bear with me.

After the walk around the lake we went to the Hotel Park for cream cake. Lake Bled is noted for this dessert.

Lake Bled

For some reason I keep posting by accident so here is the continuation. Before dinner some of us decided to take the boat out to the church in the middle of the island.  It is really a beautiful ride.  The island is small so we saw everything in a short amount of time.  We returned to the hotel where we had dinner.

Forgot to mention these crazy people wanted to wade in the lake.  Only problem was it is very rocky and everyone had trouble walking on the stones

We packed up and headed for Lake Bled.  It is about an hour from Ljubljana.  We arrived at 11am, checked in and headed to walk around the lake.  It is a 3 mile trip filled with scenic views. We walked around the lake and headed for Hotel Park.  This hotel is noted for its cream cake and this cream cake is very popular in Lake Bled.


Waiting for the parade


Today we headed for the bus station to go to Kamnik for the ethnic parade.  We arrived in time to see several performances on the stage.  Then we staked out a table so we would have a good viewing spot for the parade.  Several of us stayed at the table while the others were able to check out all the vendors. After the parade we returned to Ljubljana and decided to go to the  Skytower for dinner.  We got there, but the restaurant was closed.  All was not lost however because the lounge was open.  It was a lovely location with stunning views.  We had a drink at the lounge and then went looking for dinner.  We were told by our waiter that most restaurants were closed on Sunday so we didn’t have high hopes.  As we were walking to the town center we stumbled upon an upon restaurant.  We decided to take a chance.  It turned out well.  We had a wonderful Slovenian dinner.  No pictures of the food we were too hungry.  Then again it was late and we returned to the hotel.
