Overlooking its surrounds from a high point rising out of a lake surrounded by green valley, this castle looks more residence than fortress. Added to over time, often tower by tower, Bled has a little of the Baroque to it, a little of the Gothic and its first tower, built around 1004 is Romanesque. Seat of the Tyrolian bishops for 800 years it was later a holiday home for the Yugoslav Royal Family. For visitors there is also a little museum, chapel with memorable frescos and café.
