Condé Nast Traveler Ranking: Bled Becomes One of The 25 Most Beautiful Small Towns in Europe

Bled is among the 25 Most Beautiful Small Towns in Europe. These data are provided by the Condé Nast Traveler ranking. The author of the ranking Caitlin Morton notes that Bled is one of the most popular small towns in Slovenia with a population of just over 8 thousand people. “With its emerald waters, church-dotted islet, views of the Julien Alps, and 12th-century castle on a hill, you won’t be short of picture-perfect views. The surrounding town of Bled is just as charming, with candlelit restaurants and traditional wooden rowboats just waiting for visitors,” the journalist writes.

The list of the most beautiful small towns in Europe, according to Caitlin Morton, also includes Ronda (province of Malaga, Spain), Ribe (Denmark), Portree (Isle of Skye, Scotland), Giethoorn (Netherlands), Hallstätt (Austria), Hvar (Croatia), Rye (East Sussex, England), Assos (Greece), Albarracín (province of Teruel, Spain), Kotor (Montenegro), Ísafjörður (Iceland), Reine (Lofoten Islands, Norway), Tórshavn (Faroe Islands), Vernazza (Liguria region, Italy), Kastraki (Greece), Cobh (province of Munster, Ireland), Angra do Heroísmo (Azores, Portugal), Sighișoara (Mureș County, Romania), Dinant (Belgium), Castelluccio (Italy), Interlaken (Switzerland), Rothenburg ob der Tauber (Bavaria, Germany), Flåm (Norway), and Kaysersberg (Alsace, France).
