Chapter 18

“Staying at a great lake north of Emona for his conference”

“It had poured into an alpine valley at the end of one of the Ice Ages”.

“Now it lay like a sapphire in the hands of the alps,its surface burnished with whitecaps in the late afternoon breeze”

“from one steep edge rose a cliff higher than the rest, and on this,one of Slovenia’s great castles roosted”

From Wikipedia

Lake Bled (Slovene: Blejsko jezero) is a glacial lake in the Julian Alps in northwestern Slovenia, where it adjoins the town of Bled.

The lake is 2,120 m long and 1,380 m wide, with a maximum depth of 30.6 metres. The lake is situated in a picturesque environment, surrounded by mountains and forests. A medieval castle stands above the lake on the north shore.
