Posted: May 04 2016

 

Whilst living in the UK to work, it’s the ideal opportunity to explore Europe. With flights provided by budget airlines from as little as £30 you’d be crazy not to jet of for weekends to explore the delights Europe can offer you.

In the middle of Lake Bled there is a tear-shaped Island that has The Church of Assumption and a museum. To get to the Island you must get a traditional boat called a Pletna. Away from the Island there’s plenty to do including Bled Castle and Horse-drawn carriage tours. Just an hour away from Bled, Ljubljana is one of Europe’s best cities and has plenty of sites to see with great architecture in the churches, cathedrals, museums and even Tivoli City Park.
