Bled Is Actively Preparing for the Christmas and New Year Holidays

Despite the fact that the temperature outside the window is still quite autumn, preparations for the Christmas and New Year holidays are already in full swing in Bled.

At the moment, festive illumination is being installed in the city. Bled will shine with Christmas lights on 30 November 2018 at 5:00 p.m. – on the opening day of the pre-holiday season. According to the local company Turizem Bled, after the festive illumination is lit, a concert by Lea Sirk will take place.

The municipality allocated 50 thousand euros for the installation and dismantling of festive illumination, as well as the purchase of decorations and new equipment. Another 100 thousand euros are allocated to hold the events at the Jezerski Promenade.

The Winter Tale at Lake Bled, where you can buy presents and taste food and drinks of the Gorenjska region cuisine at holiday stalls, will work from Monday to Thursday from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., from Friday to Sunday and on holidays from 11:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. On weekends and holidays, an entertainment music programme will be organized at the promenade. There will also be a New Year’s post office for children, at which the youngest guests of the events can draw or write their wishes in a letter to Santa Claus. On weekends, fairy-tale heroes will pick up the mail.
