Proscuitto, cheese, rollls and croissants were the breakfast offerings that I brought home from my early morning walk. One could argue that 730am is not early but the others were all still asleep.

Eventually I persuaded Rami and the kids that we ...
... tourists. We got onto a small train that took us inside the hill into a large cave we a sign that said English and we walked to it and again waited patiently with over a hundred other people. A guide arrived and addressed us about the cave and we started walking. A line of humanity snaking its way through some of the cave occasionally stopping at a marked spot to marvel at the limestone structures. We walked for over an hour, with Robert stopping to take ...

... very nice, indeed.
Day two was a repeat of grazing our way through the market place for buns and fabulous fruit. I can't believe the freshness and taste of the fruit and the figs are out of this world.
After breakfast we wandered about and tried to take some photos of town, settled in for a tea and coffee (coffee in this part of the world is strong!). Then it was off to the car for our trip to Zagreb.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Jelovica Bled
We stayed 2 nights at the Hotel Jelovica Bled. We found it to be very clean, extremely quiet for sleeping, hotel staff all spoke English and were very friendly. We liked that the hotel is situated on the lake so easy access to the lake walking paths. The Hotel included a buffet breakfast which was plentiful and tasty.
