Worth the gondola ride over. Other than the old church not much there. But the view is nice and the gondola is a fun way to enjoy the lake.

On the little island of bled there is a church but is nice to hear the story behind especially of the stairs. This place is beautiful. One can go to the island by boat or swimming if you are a good swimmer. Go around it by walk. We loved it.

We rented a small boat and rowed out to the lake. This took about 20 minutes, however, none of us had rowing experience so found it challenging to get there. The island is small but is so beautiful to have a walk around. I would recommend rowing out if you can because it is so much fun and only costs... More

The island is very nice and not too far from most beaches. Renting a boat or anything else to reach it is simple. I even swam back to shore.

If you are happy to row yourself this is the much quicker and cheaper way to get to the island. It will take about 15 minutes. Otherwise you have to wait for a 'pletna' boat to fill up before it goes. Island definitely worth a visit (although inevitably quite 'touristy').

After a relaxing 25 minute pletna ride we arrived at the island in the scorching sun. The views from here are fantastic and the water colour is absolutely stunning on a clear, sunny day. You only get 30 minutes before your pletna departs, but we found it long enough to take in the views and relax. Well worth a visit.

Our group took the pletna (adults) and then a kayak (teens) out to the island. The church is pretty, but if you aren't up for the stairs on a hot day, just strolling around the island or sitting on a bench and watching the canoes and kayaks and people is also pleasant. Views of the castle from out on the... More

Well the family and I got to the island by taking a little 30 minute boat ride out there. It has a nice little scenic walkway around it. Up the stairs on either side is a little cafe and souvenir and gift shop. It was a nice little trip.

Let me start by saying that if you can swim to the island, do it. When you take a gondola ride they only give you about 30 minutes to view the island. The tickets are cheap to enter the attractions, but you simply feel rushed. Other than that the place is beautiful and has cheap ice cream. Make sure you... More

Looks much better than it is. Not worth paying the extra to ring the bell however, you will probably only ever be here once.....
