Lake Bled

Samuel H Glassner, MD

 

Lake Bled lies at the eastern end of the Zaka Valley in the Alps of northern Slovenia. This photograph was taken from the courtyard of Bled Castle, which perches 130 meters above the lake and dates back to the 11th century. In the center of the glacial and tectonic lake, on Slovenia's only island, stands the Church of the Assumption of Maria. The church was rebuilt in the 17th century and is famous for its 99-step Baroque stairway and 15th-century Gothic frescos.
