About Hotel Triglav
Hotel Triglav Bled was originally built by the then-Mayor of Bled Jakob Peternelj and officially opened in 1906. That year, Bled not only saw the opening of a new hotel in a unique location, but also that of a rail connection with Vienna. The Second World War and years of nationalisation followed but now the Hotel Triglav Bled has finally returned to the grandson of the original, pre-war owner.
The present owners dedicated themselves to a complete refurbishment of the hotel, reviving its original appearance and restoring its soul after a long period of neglect. The facade boasts beautifully preserved geometric elements in the original Alpine Secessionist style. In the lobby, guests are greeted by the famous 1930s August Förster concert piano whose sound enthralled the audience at the second Bled Jazz Festival in 1961. All spaces feature antique items that whisk you back in time: old suitcases, furniture, porcelain and so on, while the walls are home to numerous old photographs and masterpieces by renowned painters.
Hote Triglav Bled has always been popular with guests who appreciate friendliness, top-quality service and cuisine and the unique location. Due to its immediate proximity to the lake, the hotel has been closely connected with rowers from its opening to the present day. In the hotel’s very first year, rowing regatta competitors stayed in the hotel. Even today, many Slovene and foreign rowers are also among the regular guests.
This hotel is available as part of any tailor made holiday with Rediscover the World.
