Bled – a wonderful place in Ljubljana, Slovenia
To be honest, my last stay in Ljubljana, Slovenia has not been very long. And to be precise: I have only been there for one dayJ. Nevertheless it was a great experience because I had the chance to visit a very special place called Bled. It is a small town which can be reached from Ljubljana in around 30 minutes by car. Bled is well-known for its beautiful castle and lake.
When I arrived in Bled and saw the lake, I was close to being speechless. It is really a wonderful place and I think, if you come to Ljubljana, Slovenia during spring or summer, it is a perfect place for relaxing walks. If you like climbing, you can do a nice tour in the mountains.
Of course you can also visit the castle but unfortunately I did not have enough time for this. Fortunately I had enough time to visit the restaurant in the castle. It is definitely a very special place and probably one of the best restaurants in the region. So if you are in Ljubljana, you should definitely go there. The design of the restaurant is very modern and everything is made of wood. Besides that, the decoration has been really nice and I felt very welcome. When you´re sitting in the restaurant, you have an incredible view on the lake. And what can I say? The kitchen is simply excellent!
I hope you are not too hungry at the moment but I have to mention some of the dishes I had in this wonderful restaurant. As a starter I took a celery soup with grilled prawns, which was very delicious. After that I chose a saffron risotto with grilled sea bass as main dish. I can highly recommend this dish but I honestly think that you can´t do any mistake when choosing from their menu. Usually I am never ordering risotto in restaurants as I think it is pretty hard to make a really good one. I have been disappointed several times in the past – but I gave it a try this time and my experiences did not remain unfulfilled. I am sure that this is probably one of the best restaurants in Ljubljana and I can highly recommend going there.
