Bled for the Blind

On the lake shore not far from the hotel stands this bronze model of Lake Bled and the surrounding area. I've seen something similar once before in Budapest and I think that they are a really good idea.

They aren't a model to tell tourists what they can see as there are no labels. Rather they are intended for blind people to get a feel for the view they are unfortunately missing out on.

I think they are really clever and I wish that more tourist attractions would pay to have something similar for those who, through no fault of their own, can't fully appreciate the stunning views many of us travel long distances to see.

We have a similar bronze model of the Callanish Standing Stones on Lewis.
