A photographer's Guide to Slovenia
Lake Bled is the real gem of Central Europe! The beautiful emerald lake is surrounded by majestic forestry and snow-capped peaks of the Julian Alps, one of the best alpine resorts in Europe.

No wonder that this picturesque spot attracts tourists from all over the world! The smooth surface of the lake reflects the adjacent mountains, lofty trees, and a vertical cliff above the waters with a mysterious medieval castle on top. A green island in the center of the lake is the pure highlight of the scenery. Bled Island is home to the Chruch of the Mother of God, the beautiful ancient church built in the Slavic Baroque style.
I recommend staying on the southern shore of the lake in one of the cozy hotels. Otherwise, you can lodge in the town of Bled and drive to our photo location every day from there. Five to seven days is a reasonable amount of time to explore the vicinity and beautify your portfolio with new photographs.
The resort lake is located near the Triglav National Park. All the main attractions of the region are conveniently located nearby -- the picturesque Vintgar gorge with its vertical cliffs over the turbulent river Radovna and the Shum waterfall; Lake Bohinj, the largest in the country, spilled on the slopes of the Julian Alps; the ancient Catholic Church of St. Primoz and Felician, encompassed by alpine meadows; and Savica, one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Slovenia. The proximity of the above scenic spots allows you to visit each in one day.
In autumn, the forest around the lake is especially beautiful. Nature paints the foliage with all shades of yellow, red, and green. However, the multicolored forest, the fog that descends over the waters, and the early snow on the mountain tops can only be observed in the second half of autumn. This is the exact time I advise you to visit Slovenia.

Traveling alone can be incredibly fun but if you really want to learn the art of photography, hone, or improve your photography skills, then I invite you to join one of my photo workshops.
