When we went there, some of us knew about a “famous” bench from which reveals the magnificent view of the enchanting city. Of course, we went to look for it. We climbed a hillside and started to walk along a narrow forest path. It takes us to the pretty beaches, but not to the demand. At one point we realized that we have strayed far from the lake. We looked around and saw in the distance on the opposite slope that our bench is there. We went back and got on the neighboring hill. Indeed, the sight that unfolds from there is intoxicating. A bench is an attractive place for photographers from around the world because they can catch Bled in all its beauty – the island castle, the city, the lake and one more thing – the high mountains, which is nestled this enchanting place.
