Worth going to if you row yourself or swim out but definitely do not pay money to get there or do anything there. The ice cream was worth it for us in the summer.

Ring the bell in the old church tower to get your wish. I'm still waiting but the visit was lovely. I'd heard about the mousse like hot chocolate but, sadly, I got a very thin and ordinary one :( Still worth the visit. The boat across added to the experience.

We hired a rowing boat to get to the island - a nice way of approaching it slowly and doing it at our pace. Climbing the bell tower gave us a lovely view over the whole of Lake Bled. Then a visit to the small but beautiful church where we could ring the bell ourselves. A true jewel of a... More

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.

It will be good for you if... More
