The Beautiful Pictures Of Lake Bled
The fertile land, the protective shelter of the castle hill and the island,
have always invited the settlement of the Bled area. The first, and still rare
traces of humans in Bled, date back to the Stone Age. In the Iron Age, when the
mining of iron began in the Alpine regions, settlement increased.
Beneath the layer of an already discovered Slavic necropolis at Pristava pod
Gradom, archeologists discovered 80 gravesites from the late Iron Age (800 to
600 BC) - Celtic and Roman finds however, are more modest. Bled was later well
populated by the Slavs, who arrived in two waves. The Slavic settlements were
most probably located at exactly the same spots where the lakeside villages of
Mlino, Želece, Zagorice, Grad and Recica formed in the late Middle Ages.
