Travel Tuesday: Lake Bled, Slovenia

Here's a shot from a hill overlooking Lake Bled, one of Slovenia's most popular attractions. Even on an overcast day it's beautiful. That's Bled Island and the Church of the Assumption, which has some fine 14th century frescoes and a church bell that gives good luck if you ring it. You get to it by hiring a boatman to row you out across the tranquil waters. On the cliffs above is an imposing 11th century castle. The small town on the lake shore is a bit touristy, so stay in one of the more isolated guesthouses further out.

That would be such a cool area to explore.

Looking for more from Sean McLachlan? He also hangs out on the Civil War Horror blog, where he focuses on Civil War and Wild West history.
