This is a tiny island on the lake Bled. It is very nice to look and because it is quiet, it is a good placer to relax your body and soul in a pristine beauty of Slovenia. I suggest you to go in the early morning on a sunny day there, you will love this place.

You need to pay 12 euro per person for the boat-trip thai it lasts only 10 minutes. Is a very small bute cute island with a small chaper for lovers, a ringing bell for a wish, a small laografical museum, a cafe and a souvenir shop. but the views of the lake are all the money !

The Bled Island is undoubtedly worth visiting since it is one of a kind. I really enjoyed strolling along the shores of the island and also climbing up 99 steps to the church. It offers wonderful scenery of the lake and of the castle of Bled.

I was travelling on my own, so I took the Pletna boat across rather than rowing which would have worked out more expensive for me. If there is more than one of you, definitely row yourselves as it is 10/12 euro an hour, rather than 12 euro per person for a 10 min trip across, 30 mins on the island... More

Literally a breath of fresh air to visit this beautiful island with such history in the middle of beautiful Lake Bled. to walk the steps pilgrims walked hundreds of years ago in their dedication to God is uplifting, especially on such an inspiring little island with its beautiful little church. What a wonderful secret not yet overrun by the rest... More

true romantic spot in the middle of the lake and worth the boat trip to row out there. a wedding was going on at the time so that increased the atmosphere. great views. very peaceful despite being busy with other tourists.

Really nice setting for a coffee in the middle of the lake but costs are rocketing now averaging €15 to cross and €6 to ring the bell (up from €2 recently). Well worth a visit but try and hire a boat from the lido so you set your own agenda.

To get to Bled Island, get a little passenger boat, paddle boarding, or hire rowing boats (hand made by a local) then cross to the Island and eat some of the best cake , coffee, ice-cream you can imagine. You can also ring the bell of the ancient church tower on this tiny ancient island in the middle of this... More

I had a good time being in this beautiful island and the city itself. One day was not enough to see everything around, but it gives me a good thoughts of how to organize my trip to this great city.
