Thermal Baths Bled
Located amidst the stunning Slovenian scenery, lake Bled is a lakeside resort with close proximity to 3 ski areas. Straza is the nearest, being just above the town ,with Kobla and Vogel that have a greater variety of terrain being about 30 minutes’ drive away. These four areas participate in a joint lift pass system which gives Bled ski holidays visitor’s access to a combined total of 88 kms of slopes serviced by 22 lifts. The areas are linked by a free bus service for pass holders.
Bled itself has 3 ski runs, one beginner, one intermediate and one advanced, which are accessed by 2 ski lifts which are able to uplift 4,150 skiers per hour.
Due to its relatively low altitude, snow cover at Bled can be a little erratic, but their snow making facilities help solve this problem. Straza, is only minutes away from the centre of Bled and is the most suitable for beginners, being at a height of 600 metres. It has a ski school here and also offers night skiing. However, anyone above beginner level would struggle to spend more than a day here. Kobla and Vogel offer the best variety of slopes with runs catering for all skiing abilities. Although black runs are limited, the ones in place do offer sufficient challenge to maintain interest. Both have 35 kms of trails to offer and snow cover is better too. There is also considerable cross country skiing in the area. The facilities are somewhat limited for snowboarders, although on the upside they can access most of the slopes by cable car or chair lift.
Apres Ski & Nightlife
There is a good choice of bars and restaurants and pizzerias in Bled catering for all tastes. The Gostilna Pizzeria & Brewery Gala In, which is located just outside Lesce is a great complex which is very popular with visitors who enjoy washing down some great pub food or pizza with the local "Gala In" beer. During the evening there are a few places with live music and a discotheque. Other pastimes include listening to brass band concerts.
For those who love to shop there are many small stores and malls as well as smaller specialist shops selling handicrafts and souvenirs.
