Lake Bled

Lakes are a constituent element in the exceptional level of water resources in Slovenia, which ranks amongst the richest countries in Europe in this regard. Lake Bled is the most famous lake in Slovenia. It was formed 14,000 years agoand boasts an island, complete with a church. Lake Cerknicais the biggest lake in Slovenia. When the Cerknica field is flooded, it boasts an area of 2,500 hectares, but this dries out in May or June. Etched between the mountains of Bohinj,Lake Bohinj is the largest permanent natural lake in Slovenia. Seven lakes are spread across the valley below Triglav, which is commonly referred to as the Seven Lakes Valley. The deepest lake in Slovenia is Lake Velenje, which was formed due to the mining of coal and reaches a depth of 54 meters. Most of the lakes and their banks offer excellent opportunities for recreation and relaxing walks with beautiful views. Some of the walks also feature picnic areas and organised camps in the vicinity.

Lake Bled

The Bled Lake came into existance when the Bohinj Glacier moved away. It is 2120 m long, up to 1380 m wide and it is of the tectonic origin, After the last Ice Age, the Bohinj Glacier deepend its natural tectonic hollow and gave it its present form. When the ice melted the basin was filled with water. The lake has no considerable affluents except some streams. The thermal springs in the northeast part are captured in three swimming pools: at the Toplice Grand Hotel, Park Hotel and Golf Hotel. The beauty of the lake is stressed by the island on the west side. The temperature of the lake reaches up to 25°C in the summer and gets ice covered in winter.
