Bled or Kranjska Gora

I’m planning a trip to Slovenia next summer for 7 nights. Would Bled or Kranjska Gora be a better place to stay? It is important to us to have good public transport to be able to visit places ourselves without taking an organised tour. We would like to spend a day or 2 going up the mountains so easy access to the gondolas would be good. Also we like having a fairly good choice of places to eat in the evening. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

Regarding your interest, then Ljubljana is the place to stay. Best public transport conections to everywhere, best accomodations and concentrations of very good restaurants to eat and enjoy yourself.

Unfortunately that’s not an option as the package I would be booking only has accommodation in Kranjska Gora or Beld. I would also like to stay in the alps rather than a larger city.

In that case Bled is a little better. Good connection to lake Bohinj, Ljubljana is closer, Radovljica.

On the other hand Kranjska gora have more alpin scenery, more option to walk around from hotel and probably less tourist.

For Bled - Kranjska gora you must change bus in Lesce.

For easy access to hiking then Kranjska Gora is a better choice. From Bled you will have to take a bus or train to get access to hiking trails. Also, in summer the area around Lake Bled is horribly crowded, so if you don't want to feel like you are on a crowded beach in Spain, then head to Kranjska Gora and visit Jasna Lake, beautiful and far more tranquil.

Agreed with @AdeleinSlovenia - Kranjska Gora for hiking and to avoid crowds. You can always take the bus from Kranjska Gora to Bled (https:/…).
