Accessibility and accommodation
The nearest international airport, Ljubljana Airport at Brnik is only 36 km away from Bled. Direct shuttle bus service and private transfers between the airport and Bled are organized throughout the year.
Less than an hour outside of Ljubljana by car lies the beautiful city of Bled and its famous lake. Bled lies approximately 45 km from the national border with Austria and Italy. You should know that it may get very crowded on Sundays in seasons at the end of highway. Once you’ve reached the town, there is ample parking available. For those with electric cars, there is a free charging station. Bled has one close train station, but unfortunately is not located in the centre of town. Lesce-Bled station is 4 km away, meaning you will either have a lengthy hike or short bus ride.
Bus from Bled leaves hourly on the half-hour from the main bus station to Ljubljana and the number of direct connections to cities further away are limited. From Ljubljana you will find more buses to your final destination. To go around the lake, you can take a coach, a tourist train or you can rent a bike, an electric bike or a Segway. With traditional pletna boat you can ride to the island.
Bled provides a good range of accommodation facilities from hotels (mostly 3*** and 4****), pensions, garni hotels and pensions, private rooms and apartments, youth hostels, tourist farms and even camping.
