Perched atop a cliff rising 130 metres above the glacial waters of Lake Bled, Bled Castle, with its history reaching back to 1004, has for over a millennium offered the finest view of Bled island, the town of Bled and the wider landscape of the Gorenjska region.

When organising a conference in Bled, the castle is a central element of a superb experience. The Knight Gašper Lambergar Theatre Group, dressed in medieval costumes, transports audiences to the Middle Ages when they give their performances of medieval culture and entertainment that really brings authentic historic life to the castle atmosphere. Other parts of the castle double up as a museum, a traditional manual printing shop and the castle wine cellar. Alongisde all this, the recently renovated castle restaurant offers local and regional dishes made in contemporary and sophisticated ways, all with the aim of preserving the gastronomical heritage of Slovenia and the Upper Carniola region.

During the balmy months, the castle courtyard hosts many cultural events, of which ‘Medieval Days’, when knights portray medieval life to visitors, is the most popular.
