Bled Weather May Averages, Slovenia
May sees temperatures continue to climb in Bled as the tourist season kicks off.
Daytime temperatures now reach a pleasant high of 21°C, but can cool to around 8°C in the evenings.
Lighter clothing would be appropriate for travelling around during the day, especially if you are planning to explore the surrounding countryside. However, there is still a risk of rain at this time of year so it is a good idea to keep a waterproof mac and umbrella handy.
Evenings in Bled can be quite chilly, so wearing warmer jackets would be a good idea.
Due to the much warmer weather, this is a great time of year for nature lovers to come to Bled as there is so much to see.
The surrounding hills are ideal for hiking or hiring bikes to cycle through and Triglav National Park is a must-see for its array of glacial lakes and waterfalls, not to mention the sight of Mount Triglav, Slovenia's highest peak.
Bled Castle sits above the lake and is well worth a visit. This 1000 year old castle has a moat, drawbridge and courtyards and houses a fascinating museum, as well as a wine cellar that hosts regular tasting sessions.
And for those wanting a taste of the city, the capital, Ljubljana, is a short drive away and here you can visit many museums and art galleries or just explore the array of cafes and restaurants dotted around.
