The technological inventions of prehistoric Europe gave rise to new crafts which were very important for the prehistorical settlers of Bled. Many of these inventions were connected with fire (the second 'Bled element') as it promoted the development of pottery-making, non-ferrous metals processing, iron industry, glass making, and tool enhancement.
The life of people depends on their natural environment, seasons, work, knowledge and spiritual assumptions and important events affecting the everyday life. The annual life cycle explores the life of Bled inhabitants through centuries. The rhythm of work and holiday, birth and death, ancient tradition and modern poetry, pagan customs and Christian religion, medieval pilgrimages and present-day tourist travel is the fabric from which a life style has been woven that can generally be regarded as the life style of Bled, Gorenjska and Slovenia.
