    Enjoy a day at leisure in the peaceful and beautiful resort of Lake Bled. A walk around the lake is highly recommended. At 6 kilometres it can take a couple of hours, but there's definitely no rush, with plenty of places to stop and take in the scenery, or even take a dip in the emerald water. For a small fee you can also take a traditional wooden pletna boat (there are no noisy motorboats on Lake Bled) to visit the Church of Maria, which rises from a tiny islet in the middle of the lake, or you can hire your own rowing boat for a more personal experience.

If you would like to explore further, just a short distance away you will find picturesque Piran, sitting pretty at the tip of a narrow peninsula. Its Old Town - one of the best-preserved historical towns anywhere on the Adriatic - is a gem of Venetian Gothic architecture.
