Island Charm

By Linda Tancs

Slovenia, the third most forested country in Europe, has but one island–Bled.  Ringed by the Julian Alps, picturesque Bled reigns supreme in the middle of its Alpine lake, a sight to behold in winter when the lake freezes over.  The average temperature is, after all, a chilled -2 degrees Celsius.  Enjoy the winter views from Bled Castle, the country’s oldest, while munching on Bled vanilla cream cake, a local specialty.
