Bled is reached by driving from Ljubljana along the expressway that goes to Jesenice; follow the signs from the Lesce turnoff. Trains from Ljubljana stop in the nearby town of Lesce, Zelezniska ulica 12 (tel. 04/294-4154/7), where you'll need to catch one of the regular buses to Bled. Buses arrive at Avtobusna postaja Bled at Cesta svobode 4 (tel. 04/578-0420). The Tourist Information Office is at Cesta Svobode 15 (tel. 04/574-1122; www.bled.si), around the corner from the casino entrance.

The nearest train station for Lake Bohinj is at Bohinjska Bistrica, which isn't served by trains from the capital. Buses stop at Ribcev Laz, at the head of the lake, right near the office of the helpful Bohinj Tourist Association (Turisticno drustvo Bohinj), Ribcev Laz 48 (tel. 04/574-6010; www.bohinj.si), open daily 8am to 8pm in summer. Buses also continue to Ukanc at the far side of the lake, although fitter types like to walk, and you can also opt for a boat ride across the water.
