Bled is an Alpine resort of breathtaking beauty, like a picture post card of a Disney wonderland. The vibrant town surrounds a crystal clear, spa lake, fed by the pure, green, melt water from the Julian Alps. In the summer the rivers are cool and the lakeside, supervised pools, are warm for bathing. In the winter it is crisp, dry and cold. Some winters the lake freezes and Bled is engulfed in snow. The snow capped Julian Alps are the background to this fairytale scenery. Slovenes are Well Known for our love of the outdoors and this is the perfect starting off point for days of fun, surrounded by the outstanding scenery of Triglav National Park.

Just beautiful - and less expensive than Greece.
You can do it on that budget - you'd have to go on the cheaps to do that in Greece (and, the travel to the nice islands is very time consuming).
