This is a remarkable place! Boat trip for around half an hour, then you can arrive at this little island. This is a pearl in the middle of the lake. What a beautiful place! 和城堡遥相呼应,极美!我好后悔去的时候没有带泳衣,否则在那住上2星期,每天游泳上小岛,又别有一番滋味。

Although you have to take a boat, and only get 30 minutes on the island itself, it's worth it. Alex, our captain, was very knowledgeable about the area and very friendly. You really don't need more than 30 minutes on the island even if you see everything.

99 stone steps could be daunting, but well worth the effort. Even my 82-year old mom did it, but 33 at a time :-) When you take the boat over, your charge includes 3 rings on the church bell. Loved it! We also walked into the bell tower, which was nice.

The quiet boat ride out to Bled Island and the stroll around the island was beautiful. Although we did climb up to the church, we didn't visit since admission was a pricey 8 euros.

The boat ride was the highlight. It is a fairly steep climb to the top to see the church. I rang the bell which is suposed to bring me luck.

One of Slovenia´s most touristy places, but definitely worth it. Walked around the lake, rented a boat to the island, rang the bell (now, here I have to disagree. Paying 6 euro to get in the church is way to greedy of them. Seriously!), hiked the shortcut to the castle, got in the castle (9 euro is dear, but, here!,... More

A beautiful, tiny little island in the middle of a beautiful lake surronded by towering alps. The boat ride out to the island is lovely and the steps up to the church a challenge. The church makes it all worth it.

It was pleasant to ride over in the boat at mid-day in late October. So late in the season there were not too many other visitors except for one large group. It's a pretty area but I don't think it's worth going far out of your way to visit. There is a very active rowing club on the lake and... More
