Bled Castle is perched precariously on a cliff overlooking stunning Lake Bled. We stayed 5 nights near the lake at Reka Hisa guesthouse with my grandparents. It is such an incredible area. Slovenia is probably my favorite country in Europe.
Lots of people row boats on Lake Bled. Kristin and I offered to row my grandparents around the lake, but the project never materialized.

View from the castle - on a clear day, you can see Dallas, TX
These clouds are really gnarley - these pictures are natural
Mountains surround Bled Castle in practically all directions
The Castle Tower which reminded me of Game of Thrones
Lake Bled with its perfect island church - don't worry, I have 7000 pictures of it for a later update
The upper castle area, which is now gift shops and a museum
One of many dragon accents
A small church in the castle
A cool window
Long fall into the lake
A small Slovenian village in the distance
old enough to be charming
For whatever reason, a photographer takes a sneak photo of you after you climb a bunch of stairs and enter the castle. They do not sell many pictures.
