Bled to Vintgar Gorge

by ricardo.dias

Hello

Does anyone knows if there's a Bus from Bled to Vintgar Gorge. Or any other way to get there :)

Thanks!

Ricardo

The entrance to the gorge is only 3.5km from Bled.

You will find Slovenian bus timetables in English here:

There is apparently only one daily bus from Bled to Podhom, leaving at 14:34 and arriving 14:42 but there are numerous return buses. This may well be a glitch in the website, but the gorge entrance is near enough to walk or take a taxi anyway.

You could email the tourist info people at Bled on tdbled@telemach.net (or just pop in when you are there). http://www.bled.si/en/default.asp?id=297

They were helpful when I visited, and had good English.

My preference would be to walk, you can make a nice loop on country lanes, entering at one end of the gorge and walking back to Bled from the other end past a little church called Sveta Katerina. It's about 4km one way.

Otherwise there may be a bus to the Gorge itself depending on the time of year, and there are also buses to Podhom which is close to the entrance to the gorge - see www.alpetour.si, the website of the local bus company (check the footnotes carefully, e.g. some buses run on school days only).

If none of that appeals then I suppose the other option is a taxi.

Stylish lakeside monuments

by GillianMcLaughlin

As you walk round the lake, you'll come across a little collection of statues as you pass the Zaka Rowing Centre. This one, depicting a muscular rower, was crafted by Slovenian sculptor Boris Kalin, and is reputedly one of his finest works. It dates from the period between the wars.

By the boathouse you can also see a bust of Boris Kocijanèiè, who was apparently a former president of the Slovenian Rowing Association. It was sculpted by Stojan Batiè.

On the boathouse itself there is a memorial to the former president of the international rowing federation (FISA), Swiss citizen, Thomas Keller. His legacy to the world of rowing is the Thomas Keller Medal, the sport's highest honour, awarded each year to recognise an "outstanding career in rowing" as a competitor and as a sports personality. I do love places with fine works of art that are set in the great outdoors for all the public to see. Needless to say, my insatiable curiosity leads me to undertaking hours of research to find out who the people were who are commemorated, and who the artists were. Slovenia is rich in such statues and memorials and for that, it will always have a place in my heart :-)

Magical Lake Bled

by barryg23

When we arrrived in Bled it was getting dark, it was raining and the snow was on the way. Regardless of the weather, there was something almost fairytale about Lake Bled, what with Bled Island in the distance, the Castle on the cliff and the Cathedral in the foreground.

More Scenery...

Many people would want to be up at the Bled Castle for the sceneries anyway & I was no exception.
I could almost see all the areas around Bled & beyond.
Amazingly beautiful plateau & the mountains surround Bled.
