Weekend in Lake Bled?

Jump to last reply

We are planning to drive Northern Croatia and Slovenia next May, prior to embarking on a cruise which departs from Venice. The most favoured driving itinerary has us at Lake Bled on a weekend. Is that a good idea, or do locals (from Ljubljana etc) pour into Bled on a weekend?

Initially I drew some comfort from the fact that the ferry timetable out to Bled Island is more limited on a Sunday. I asumed this might mean Sunday is not such a busy day after all. But then, that's not necessarily right, is it? Perhaps it's just a case of religious observance being more important than catering to the demands of tourism!

Could anyone advise us on this? Should we rearrange our itinerary to avoid Bled on a weekend? Or doesn't it matter?

Many thanks...
