The railway station Lesce-Bled is located along the railway line Oste (Munich – Salzburg – Villach – Ljubljana – Belgrade – Istanbul – Athens). The railway station is 4 km away from the centre of Bled. Bled can be reached by bus (the Bled bus station is on the opposite side of the railway station), taxi, or on foot taking an asphalted road intended for pedestrians and cyclists. The Bled Lake railway station lies along the railway line Villach – Jesenice – Nova Gorica – Koper or Gorizia (Italy). It is just 1.5 km away from the centre of Bled and you can walk there, take a taxi or ride the tourist train.
Bled is connected with regular bus lines with the immediate surroundings and all larger cities of Slovenia. There are regular bus rides from Ljubljana going through Kranj and Radovljica. Buses also operate from the direction of Bohinj and Jesenice. The central Bled bus station is located on the northeast part of the lake, 3 minutes walking distance from the lake, at the cross-section of the roads Cesta svobode and Grajska cesta. The Bled Union bus station is located at the entrance to Bled, 5 minutes walking distance from the lake.
Bled is 47 km away from the Austrian border (Wurzenpaß) or Italy (Fusine Laghi – Rateče). To reach Bled you can take the highway (direction Ljubljana) and then the exit towards Lipce or Bled. Alternatively, you can take the regional road Kranjska Gora – Jesenice, passing by Blejska Dobrava over Kočno and Gorje or the motorway from Jesenice, passing by Žirovnica and Lesce to Bled. Bled is 50 km away from Ljubljana. The easiest access is the highway towards Jesenice, which you leave at the exit towards Bled or Lipce *. The other option is to drive on the regional road, passing by Medvode, Kranj, Naklo, and Radovljica.
If you are driving on a highway, do not forget to buy a vignette, which is mandatory in order to drive on Slovenian highways and on bypasses around Ljubljana. Roads that require the vignette are marked with signs. You may purchase vignettes at service stations near the border with Slovenia or in Slovenia. Vignettes must be attached to the windscreen from the inside (the exact location is indicated on the vignette) before driving on highways.
