Bled is a small town on Lake Bled and it lies in Upper Carniola region of Slovenia. This is Slovenian touristic pearl, naturally unique, so there is no doubt why it was nominated as one of the seven new wonders of the world.
Lake of Bled and its major sights offers you a wide range of attractions. From natural point of view, you can enjoy in the picturesque scenery of the lake, surrounded by mountains and forests, in all four seasons. From historical point of view, you can imaginary journey from early medieval era to the modern settlement. The most fascinating is the Bled island with a pilgrimage church on it and a Medieval Bled castle that stands on the rock above the lake.
Visiting cities and hiking with kids can be challenging sometimes, so do not forget to include their capabilities when preparing itinerary. Keep in mind their age, physical capabilities and their interests in nature, history, and cultures.
The path around Lake Bled is 6 km long so hiking can become quite boring for the kids. Unless, if you introduce them a bit different outdoor exploring experience. They will absorb the stories, run for the hidden treasure, and keep their interest in solving the tasks that will lead to resolve the mystery.
Have you ever heard about The legend of Živa?
It is said that the fairy queen Živa created Lake Bled a long time ago. In those days, the island was a rock, inhabited by fairies and surrounded by fertile land.
One day one of the villas fell off a cliff and injured herself. Živa was so angry that she gathered all the villas one night. They brought large amounts of water from the surrounding mountain peaks and flooded the valleys around the cliff, and this is how Lake Bled was born. So, none of fairies could fell again and harm herself. A real fairytale island was created.
But queen Živa needs help – the magic subsides and Lake Bled may disappear. The fairies have hidden their magic in an ancient mystical relic, but they cannot leave the island to find it. Queen Živa is now so old that she has forgotten in which object she hid it. She knew this could happen, so she left her traces around the lake.
Help the fairy queen Živa find this mystical relic. You have 18 hints and 19 relics. Only one out of these 19 relics is not connected to the hints and it will help you solve the mystery and restore the magic of the lake.
