Perched above Lake Bled in Slovenia is a fairy tale castle, built in the middle ages, with a spectacular view of the lake. We were lucky enough to score dinner reservations on a night when no one was there – we had the entire place to ourselves. We truly felt like royalty dining on vegatable paprikash soup, lovely market salad and fish fresh from the Adriatic Sea. Because that seemed WAY too healthy, we had to finish it off with fabulous flaky apple struedel and Lake Bled’s classic “cream slice” cake.
Did I mention we hiked practically straight up a wicked trail to get there? We must have burned off some calories on the way, right?
