Lonely Planet, a leading publisher of tourist guide books, has selected Bled among the top 10 destinations which offer unique and memorable experiences

Lonely Planet, a leading publisher of tourist guide books, has selected Bled, Slovenia’s Alpine town with a picturesque lake and island, among the top 10 destinations which offer unique and memorable experiences.

The second edition of the list of recommended destinations puts Bled sixth alongside the world’s most famous sights such as Petra, Uluru or Yellowstone.

Lonely Planet has described it as a place of natural beauty with a unique island with a church, labelling Lake Bled with the island the most photogenic lake on the planet.

“Bled making it among top 10 destinations recommended as providing memorable experiences by one of the main media in travel is a great honour for Bled and Slovenia,” Slovenian Tourist Board (STO) boss Maja Pak said in a written statement on the occasion.

She is particularly happy that Lonely Planet has given a special emphasis to sustainable tourism management and recommended the glamping Garden Village Bled.

This is not the first time that Bled or Slovenia has made it to a Lonely Planet list of recommended destinations. In 2017, Bled was for instance put among top 10 Instagram winter destinations, while in 2018, Slovenia made it to its list of top ten best-value destinations to visit in 2019.
