It looks relatively close on the map but you still drive about 4 hours or more to get from Vienna to Bled in Slovenia. The town is super touristy but the lake with the church in the middle surrounded by peaks is charming. The best view of the lake you’ll get from the castle perched on top of a stone, worth a visit just for the view and nothing else. You can hike to the castle but we decided to drive and not to shlep the entire gear set. In the castle was a casting party and everybody was taking pictures with them. The best part of visiting Bled is the charming winding road going through villages on very narrow streets strangled by houses.
