WHAT WE PLAN?
Winter is the time for mulled wine, hearty food, the colorful holiday season. The first in the series will be at Lake Bled, among the Slovenian Alps! On the day of our arrival, the advent should be opening, and we won't say much about how well mulled wine pairs with a light winter hike. Of course, it wouldn't hurt to enhance it with an original kremšnita!

Route Length: 9km
Elevation Difference: 200m
Departure from BEOGRAD on December 1, 2023, from the Sava Centar's large parking lot (bus turnaround for 27e and 35) at 11:00 PM. From NOVI SAD at 00:15 AM from the tourist bus stop on Sentandrejski put (in front of the new bus station, behind Nis petrol station). You should arrive at the location at least 10 minutes before departure. We'll head to Bled with the possibility of picking up a few more passengers at intermediate stops.
In the morning, we arrive at Lake Bled and start our hike. Right from the start, we'll be captivated by the beauty of Bled and its crystal-clear lake. We begin with a forest path that takes us below Bled Castle and then descends to the lake's shore.
Following the lake's shore, we pass by the kayak club's platforms along the water, enter the forest, and start our ascent to VELIKA I MALA OSOJNICA. These peaks provide a perfect view of the winter wonderland of Lake Bled!
Captivated by its beauty, we descend back along the lake and finish the loop along its shore.
All that's left is to enjoy a famous Bled kremšnita, explore the advent, and head back to Serbia in the evening. The return is planned for the early morning on December 3.
