In order to go to the island, we need to take this traditional Pletna boat, nice solid wooden boat~
Each ride can take up to about 20 passengers....
Here we go!
We chose to sit at the front of the boat =)
And this is the handsome boatman! Yes all pletna boat is without engine and rely solely on the boatman, because they wanna preserve this beautiful lake without polluting it. I actually love this concept! And I think all boatman here must have very strong arms cause imagine they need to paddle thousands KG of weight to and fro everyday ;)
Weather was good this morning and coming to this scenic beautiful lake, I am not willing to leave! :p
The boat ride is about 5-8 minutes
Then we reached the island~
The exercise for this morning is to climb this long staircase! >.<
That's a souvenir shop/cafe and church on top, we spent about 30 minutes walking around the place
Everything is beautiful here! I can say Bled is also my favorite place after Bosnia~
The water is cold!
Leaving Bled, we proceed to a fairy castle nearby.
We also had our lunch here
Have to climb a bit to the castle
And this is what we see from top of the castle!
Very beautiful isn't it? But it was a bit cold here~ Brr~
Lovely flowers can just grow from the wall and rooftop under this weather
Leaving the castle, we traveled to Ljubljana (pronounced as lub-ya-na), the capital and largest city of Slovenia.
A short funicular ride to see the medieval hilltop castle
At the hilltop, we could see the whole Ljubljana city
We had a group photo here~
Leaving the hilltop, we had a short city tour before we walked back to the hotel and rest.
Along the way, we spotted a big beautiful church
And also a very cute interesting Volkswagen car which we don't see here in our country =)
We passed by many historical buildings and squares at this Old Town
The hotel we stayed is actually nearby this square
Bear with me, 2 more posts (plus a giveaway) to end my travelogue! Very fast and efficient isn't it? Haha, cause I don't wanna drag my travelogue til next year!! And I also don't want to bore my readers too much la so I combine a lot of photos into one post.
That's all for today, thanks for reading! ;)
