Get the Best Shot of Lake Bled, Slovenia

Have you been to Slovenia yet? Lake Bled belongs to the must see places in Slovenia. Each year thousands of tourists visit the famous lake with a church on its small island. Going on a stroll around the pretty lake is definitely one of the things you should consider doing while being there. But why not observing the beauty from the top of a hill? I'll guarantee you, you will be impressed by the views and your camera will love you! So, let me tell where to get the best shot of Lake Bled, in my home country Slovenia.

How to get there

Let's suppose you just rented out a car in the city center of Ljubljana or at the Ljubljana airport and you are heading to Bled. When you arrive to the medieval town Bled, you will have to follow the direction of Bohinjska Bistrica, that means you take the road on the left side of the lake. After a 5-minute drive you will face a junction, one road going to Bohinjska Bistrica and the other one to Camp Zaka. Now take the smaller road, leading to Camp Bled Zaka. Stay concentrated, as you will have to take the first turn left to a small unpaved road. There will be a small parking space where you can leave your car. You will also see the signs saying Ojstrica and Osojnica. This is the path you should go for. In this blog post, I'd like you to show 3 viewpoints from where you can get the best shot of Lake Bled. Basically the same path will lead you to all these spots. First one to watch out is Ojstrica. 


Ojstrica, with its height of 611 m, is the smallest hill of all these 3 spots and is thereby the easiest hill to climb. It is a 15-20 minutes walk up and is a perfect spot to get the best shot of Lake Bled, Slovenia.

After the short but probably a bit steep hike through a forest you will be rewarded with enchanting views over the Lake Bled, its small island and the surrounding mountains! Look, isn't it totally worth to take the hike? My advice: Have your breakfast there! :)

Wondering what camera we use to make these photos? Here's the link.

This viewpoint can really kick your ass but try to reach the other 2 spots too. Continue the path through the forest until you reach the signs "Mala Osojnica" left and "Velika Osojnica" right. Decide whether you would like to see the higher hill ("Velika" means big) or the smaller hill ("Mala" means small) first. We decided to go for Velika Osojnica first.

Velika Osojnica

The hill with its 756 metres will take you another 20-30 minutes from Ojstrica. But, Velika Osojnica is totally worth the climb! It is less crowded than Ojstrica and Mala Osojnica and it offers great views just from another angle and from a higher point! Another spot to immortalize the view with your camera and get the best shot of Lake Bled! :)

Since we were the only people on the top, I could do some meditation and even some yoga poses, a bit for fun, a bit for my soul ;) This viewpoint is definitely suitable for finding inner peace, it reminded me a bit of my favourite meditation place in Switzerland. 

By the way, are you into photography and a big fan of the Slovenian landscape? It just came into my mind that the talented photographer Jost Gantar shoots stunning pictures of our beautiful nature - you can check his work here and follow him on Facebook! :)

Mala Osojnica

Herewith, I'd like to say, if you decide to take the hike from Ojstrica to Mala Osojnica first, it will take you about 15 minutes. Coming from Velika Osojnica, from the junction spot "left Mala Osojnica right Velika Osojnica", it is only a 5-minute walk! On our hiking trip we had all kinds of weather you could possibly imagine of. While walking up to Mala Osojnica, the weather changed immediately, first it was sunny then it started to snow (April weather, what else)! While arriving to the nice viewpoint the weather was the worst, which forced us to take photos of a misty lake Bled. All good...nothing to complain about ;)

The picture below didn't turn up that badly, right? :)

Of course, there are always other spots too to shoot a nice photo, but these are the 3 viewpoints I'd really like you to visit if you are short on time while visiting Lake Bled. It won't take you a lot of time, it is for free and you can actually escape the crowds from the touristy Lake Bled! Next time, I'll give you some other hints what hills to climb in order to enjoy the panoramic views of Lake Bled. Stay tuned!

    Excellent article and photos, I've never seen pictures from that high up before - most pix of lake Bled are taken at or near ground level. Great website, too, with direct links to Instagram, Pinterest etc. Well done! :)

    Jon, thanks for this nice comment! It made my day! It's true what you're saying, there are many photos taken at near ground and very rare from these spots. As I've heard, the viewpoints are not only unknown by tourists but also by many Slovenians... interesting..
    Well, thanks for coming by, wish you a lovely day!

    What a beautiful scenes! I'm such a mountain person. I love hiking. I don't hike on, you know, very hard mountains, I'm not an climber, but I love mountains where you can get by feet. That look from the top is always amazing. I think that no sea can compare with that view.

    In Dec, 2021, I invested the sum of 19.78 BTC with a fake blockchain impostor I met online, all the money I had saved up since 2014 got stolen just within a Month, my whole life almost crumbled, to crown it all my FICO score was so bad that I couldn't even afford securing a loan to help my kids, but everything became better after I joined a forum online where I met people testifying about HACK VANISH, a hacker who has been helping thousands of people all over the world. I decided to reach out to him via the following contact shared on the platform Text/Call/WhatsApp: + 1 (747) 293-8514, Email: hackvanish@ gmail. Com, they responded and requested for all necessary details needed in carrying out my JOB, to my greatest surprise my bitcoin was recovered and my credit report fixed, FICO score was boosted to 783 across all 3-credit bureau's, all negative items cleared just within 8 days. I can't stop expressing my profound gratitude to this great team of hackers, I strongly recommend them to anyone in need.

    My name is Tom Peacock from USA, I want to say thank you to Dr Emu for the good thing he has done for me, Though am not sure if this is the best forum to show my joy and happiness for what he has done for me but i can't hide my happiness and my joy so i have to share it with people, my marriage got crashed about two years ago and i tried all i could within my power but to no avail. I saw a post and testimonial about the good things Dr Emu has been doing so I decided to give it a try. though he is always a busy man but when he responded back to my email, he gave me 48 hours for my marriage to be restored really just like he said my marriage was restored since then I am happy and i am living happily i am so grateful to Dr Emu you can always email him here: {} or WhatsApp: {+2347012841542}

    Finding out that your husband or wife has been unfaithful isn’t just a time of profound heartbreak and shock, it’s also a time of intense confusion . At certain points desperate measures are our only resort and we take them, finding a trustworthy infiltrator can be a lifeline and I sure used one to save my relationship, business and sanity. I was having real life problems when my friend recommended Zion to me. I contacted him because my business partner was shaking me, stealing money from the business. Also my spouse was always up at odd hours clearly this is a sign that my spouse is cheating, so the hacker cloned/hacked into their devices and granted me total access to their devices without their knowledge. I was overwhelmed that I could see my business partner hidden finances that were off records and read their old and new text messages, see new and deleted pictures, emails, call logs, Facebook, messenger, WhatsApp, Snapchat, GPS location in real time among other things off my spouse phone. If you require the services of a private investigator (EC council certified personnel), you can speak to Zion at Remotespytech(@) Gmail, com . You will be glad you did. For the purpose getting him comfortable working with you, it is advisable you make reference to this post as it would save you a lot of back and forth while ensuring you are not some kid playing around. I do hope this helps.

    I was really stressed by Acid reflux issues with my newborn and had consulted Chief Dr Lucky. He gave us a thorough consultation and the medicines were equally effective. In a couple of weeks there was big improvement in my son and we are very pleased with the progress. We cannot thank Chief Dr Lucky enough. Highly recommended.

    Hello everyone, I was a victim of bitcoin scam, I saw a glamorous review showering praises and marketing an investment firm, I reached out to them on their terms of investments and invested $155,000 which I was promised to get my first 15% profit in weeks, when it was time to retire my profits, I got to know the company was bogus, they kept asking me to invest more and I ran out of patience then requested to have my money back, they refused to answer nor refund my funds, not until an old family friend introduced me to Ultimate Hacker Jerry, I reached out and after submitting my case, Ultimate Hacker Jerry was swift to action and within 36 hours I got back my funds with the due profit. I couldn’t contain the joy in me. I urge you guys to reach out to Ultimate Hacker Jerry on their support email:  (   or WhatsAp  +1(520)2 827151  ).
    don"t forget to mention Luke Curry Recommended you.
