Bled's public lido, Grajsko kopališče Bled, is the first bathing area in Slovenia to be awarded the Slovenia Green Beach certificate, which means that it is included in the Green Scheme of Slovenian Tourism. The Blue Flag which Grajsko kopališče has been holding onto for a number of years has played a key role in the acquisition of the Slovenian Green Beach label. 

Natural lido on the sunlit shore of Lake Bled shielded by the mighty castle rock

A total of 260 metres of lake shore offers everything guests might need for an unforgettable summer day: two waterslides, a jump board, plastic rafts on the lake, fenced pools with a depth of 50, 120 and 150 cm, a swing, playgrounds and a sandpit for children, kayaks, massage, table tennis, board games, 'books on vacation', deckchairs, sunshades, rich catering offer, and much more. The guests can use the tidy changing rooms, lockers, toilet areas, several outdoor showers, swimming area access for the elderly and people with disabilities. The international Blue Flag eco-label is a proof that the public lido operates in accordance with strict international standards regarding eco-friendly management, safety, cleanliness and good water quality.

Bled is a ‘gold’ destination classified as such under the Green Scheme of Slovenian Tourism. Despite the current crisis, the Bled Tourist Board as the umbrella tourism organization is aware that sustainability is the only way forward. Its director Tomaž Rogelj points our numerous sustainable projects that lay ahead. The central project is the construction of new cycling routes at the destination and in its wider community Julijske Alpe. In the years 2018, 2019 and 2020, Bled issued a special leaflet that encourages visitors to act and live sustainably during their stay in Bled. Hosting guests from over 180 countries, Bled is a miniature universe, a hub of different cultures, customs and lifestyles. It is therefore very important that the people of Bled share their vision and expectations with them.
