I enjoyed the whole Pletna boat experience and the visit to the island and the church with the famous wishing bell and its history. It would be such a shame to miss it if you get to Bled it is an interesting place. You can also walk around the island and enjoy a drink in the cafe.

In full Renovation at this time, not all the art work are displayed, but still worth it, you get to ring the wish bell that is located in the middle of the church.

My best friend got married here in the summer, I had the pleasure of being maid of honour. The church was full with 86 of her closest friends :). Was stunning day on the island and a special place to get married. Unforgettable experience. x

It's an interesting excursion to visit this church with the 'wishing' bell taking a ride on Lake Bled in a traditional wooden 'pletna' boat then climbing the 99 steps on this small island. This is a unique type of tourist activity.

This Church is worth a visit on the way up to the castle. On some days a place is open just near it where they have an audio guide. We never managed to find the place open though so we didn't use it. I'd recommend a visit though on the way up to the castle.

The boat to the Church was 12 euros and waits 30 minutes. The Church is quite a climb 99 steps then charges 6 euros to get in,so the time limit made it not worthwhile.

Average church, but unique due to location... There is a fee for entering, but you can ring the wishing bells and climb the bell tower for great views.

The trip over to the island on the pletna is lovely, €12 return is not too bad but to have to pay another €6 to ring the bell in the church is a little greedy... There is the obligatory gift shop, a fairly sparse coffee shop and lots of steps, in fact 99 to be exact. There is a nice... More
