The history of Bled’s Rowing Club reflects the history of not just Bled town, but Slovenia itself.
For tourists, the lake is a place for fun and recreation. But competitive rowers, come throughout year and from early spring you’ll see events from youth programmes right up to Olympic level.
On this episode of Bled Stories, the Bled Rowing Club.
Jernej Slivnik is Secretary General of the Slovenian Rowing Federation and and Co-Director of the Bled Rowing Organising Committee and my guide through the history of the club. The Bled Stories podcast is about the people who make Bled the place it is. The series is an accompaniment to The Firsthand Guide to Bled books. You can get more information about them here.
