  • According to folklore, Lake Bled was created by fairies 馃馃徎鈥嶁檧锔 which I didn鈥檛 know when I captioned my previous post 鈥楲ike something out of a fairytale.鈥 Legend says that in ancient times there was no water in the area- only a lush valley with sweeping grassy meadows, and a grey rock which sat prominently atop a large green hill in the middle of the valley.
. 
The rock was the dwelling of the fairies, and it was here where they loved to dance under the starry night skies. In order to keep the grass soft however, the fairies had asked the shepherds to keep their grazing sheep away from the hill. The shepherds ignored their request, and soon enough nearly all of the grass around the fairy rock had been eaten.
.
One night while she was dancing, the youngest and most beautiful of the fairies fell and broke her leg on the hard ground where there had once been soft grass. The fairies were angry, and in their wrath they gathered together on the rock and conjured up large volumes of water from the surrounding mountaintops and flooded the valley. Only the hill with the rock remained as an island in the middle of the lake.
. 
The grass grew back as soft as ever, and the fairies could once again dance under the moonlight. Most people say the fairies are now long gone from the hill.. but if you watch very closely- and if you believe- you might still see the twinkling lights of the fairies dancing at night 鉁
