Lake Bled included in the Top 10 of Lonely Planet’s new Ultimate Travel List

Lonely Planet’s new Ultimate Travel List book, which is released today, ranks the top 500 unmissable global travel experiences helping to satisfy your wanderlust from the safety of an armchair.  

Lake Bled is described as being “the planet’s most photogenic lake” and Lonely Planet’s expert writers continue to say, “This blue-green body of water with a white church on a green island, abutted by a terracotta-roofed castle and backed by the snow-daubed Julian Alps, is Slovenia’s premier crowd-puller.”

Visitors are encouraged to “Hire a pletna (gondola), dive, beneath the glass-like surface and stay over in one of many beautiful shoreside properties”.

This is the 2nd edition of the travel powerhouse’s best-selling coffee table book. It’s the definitive wish-list of the 500 most thrilling, memorable and interesting travel experiences in the world – ranked in order of brilliance.
