Bled is a town in Slovenia and is a popular tourist destination for its scenic beauty. The town is particularly popular for the glacial Lake Bled. In the middle of the lake is Slovenia's only natural island. The island has several buildings, the main one being the Pilgrimage Church of the Assumption of Mary, built in the 15th century.
Despite being tiny in size, Bled Island has attracted humans since the prehistoric ages. Archeologists have discovered traces of prehistoric human settlements dating back to the 11th century BC. On the island 124 graves with skeletons from the 9th to the 11th century were also found.The Presurfer
