We took a rowing boat out to island to browse around and ring the bell (which, if you ring it three times, apparently will make your wishes come true). The view of the island is better from the beaches of Lake Bled, but it's a nice and quick little excursion and the Bell Ringer ice cream served outside of the... More

My title pretty much sums it up. We didn't find the church too interesting, but it was still a pretty church. The clock tower is really what you pay for. The view from up there is great, you can get some pretty good pictures.

Take a putna boat out to the island and walk up the 90 steps and you will find a little piece of heaven. The church is small but has an interesting background. Ring the bell 3 times to make your wish come true. Another 90 steps up the clock tower gives you a history of telling the time. Go on... More

The church on the island in Lake Bled is surely one of the most beautiful sights in the world, and the view changes as you go around the lake. The church itself is interesting, but if it were anywhere else you wouldn't go out of your way to see it. In fact the boat ride to the island is by... More

The entrance fee is a bit steep to enter the church and climb the bell tower. It is still worth seeing on a nice day!! Definitely, try ringing the bell!

This small Church, on a small island, on a small beautiful lake of Bled, is on every postcard from Bled. The Church has a very nice altar, and the famous bell which you should ring three times in order to fulfill your wish.

I saw this as an opportunity to visit a tourist attraction. I was surprised by the wonderful experience that I had there. I intended to stop inside to visit a past from this area to pray moment. I was really surprised that I stayed and prayed for quite a while.The presence of God is in this place.
