Blet



Blet, Slovenia

September 2013 we visited Slovenia.  It is hard to believe it has already been well over a year ago!  It's true that time flies when you are having fun!



Waiting to be rowed out to the island

WARNING do not hang your hand over the side of the boat.  Swans bite.

The castle that was above our hotel


Our hotel on the lake

This beautiful Assumption of Mary Church  The church is still used for weddings but not weekly services.  

There are 99 steps up to the church.  Yes it is the only way up!  Tradition is that the groom carries the bride up to the church for their wedding.  I'm sure it makes searching for the perfect bride a harsh reality




 Linking this week with Blue Monday   Our World Tuesday     Outdoor Wednesday

Hi Debbie,

What a beautiful place! Boy, if Johnny had to carry me up those 99 steps . . . he'd still be single! LOL

Thanks for sharing.

Happy Blue Monday!

Gorgeous photos Deb! My ancestors came from Yugoslavia which is now part of Slovenia. Funny, both grandparents were born in the same area called Ljubljana . I hope you had a blessed Easter and are enjoying this week. Hugs, Anne

The wedding surroundings would be exceptional, but getting up there would be a feat in itself. Gorgeous church.
