When you get top... More

You could visit the tiny island without going into the church, but what would be the point of going there? You get to ring the wishing bell and see the newly renovated clock tower so its just about worth the fee. Its an iconic part of Bled, and if you have taken the trouble to get to the island you...

The pletna boat over is really impressive. One guy rowed 18 people ALL the way over to the island. The least you can do is climb the 99 steps and make a wish. Really beautiful, like all of the things here in Bled.

to reach this little church you have to climb 99 steps or follow the rather steep lane to the side of it. It contains fragmentary remains of 15th century frescoes and a wishing bell

People are kind and warm. Upon reaching the Church with 99 steps going up, a kind lady offered me water and seat promptly because I was trying to catch my breath.

Pretty church in the centre of Lake Bled on an island. Take a boat to the island and make sure you ring the bell. Won't take you long to see it all, but a nice way to spend an hour and nice views around the lake and towards the Julian Alps.

Covered with heavy snow, it looks pure white and shiny. I like the feeling that gives me while I'm walking along the lake

In six words, this church isn't worth the fee. There isn't much to see, especially if you've been to numerous beautiful cathedrals across Europe. There's only one souvenir shop with nothing special to offer, and the steps leading to the church have nothing interesting to showcase. In short, I don't recommend paying just to visit this church, but feel free... More

Small and pretty church with a bell/clock tower. Nice to see especially the tower with the clock machinery on display and the quotes on the stairs up and down. The island as a whole is very nice otherwise it wouldn't really be that special. The stairwell from the dock to the church is a nice spot also.

It was raining when I was there so the Plenta Boats were not running. You can hire a plenta boat to row you out to the island and back. they will wait for about 30 minutes i think. I went to have lunch to see if the weather would change but it only worsened so I was not able to... More
