Step into a real life fairytale. Bled is every bit as fantastic as the hype and so much more.
The three most common ways to get to Bled are tby taking a bus, a train or renting a car from Ljubljana.
The train and bus have similar prices but differ in their travel times and location drop off. The train takes around 60 minutes while the bus takes about 80. However, you’ll make up some of that time because the bus drops you right where you need to be and the train stations are over a mile away. You can hail a taxi or check to see if your accommodation offers a shuttle.
Check timetables for the bus HERE and the train HERE and don’t be afraid to mix and match, sometimes the timetables work best that way. If visiting during high season get to the bus station as early as possible as buses fill up quickly. Both ways can be purchased online ahead of time.
Renting a car gives you the most flexibility and allows you to explore the surrounding areas. It’s the quickest option (~40 minutes without traffic) but it is also the most expensive. Check with your accommodation for rental recommendations and requirements. Keep in mind traffic can be heavy on weekends or holidays, especially during the summer.
I highly recommend Travellers Haven as well. Well located in town with clean facilities and an extremely helpful staff. I went in April, right before high season started so shuttles weren’t running yet and the owner now only gave me a ride to my destination, but also let me use her personal guide book during my stay there in addition to all of the recommendations she gave me.
