Medieval days

Medieval camp for families as a prelude to 16th Medieval Days at Bled Castle

On Sunday, 26 May, the grassed terraces of the castle park will transform into a scene of fun knightly challenges, a variety of workshops for children, and a display of the life of knights and their ladies. All members of the family can partake in these challenges. The medieval camp for families, set up in the castle park, is an experience for children and adults alike where they can try out fun outdoor challenges under the careful guidance of costumed animators. Come and join us in the castle park, between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.! The entry is free.

At 11 a.m. you can also witness performances of medieval groups on the upper terrace of the castle. Alongside the local Sir Gašper Lambergar Theatre Group, groups from Slovenia and Croatia will also grace the stage. An entry fee applies for admission to Bled Castle.
