Boat trip across and around the island is quite enjoyable. You have to pay to visit the church nothing much else to see on the island other than enjoying the view's around it.

You can get a polenta boat, was 12 euros, and spend 30 minutes on the island. OR row yourself over which only takes about 20 minutes - plenty of places to moor up then you can explore. -you can either walk up the path or the steps -99 of them. - once at the top you see the beauty of... More

Just stunning little island. 45 minutes probably enough. The boats are quite cheap and about 15 mins walk around the lake from Bled town centre

The boat ride across to the island was peaceful, and the views ok. Once on the island the church was being restored. Compared to other attractions in Slovenia, the boat ride was expensive. Then when you get to the island you have to pay another fee to enter the church. In my opinion it was not good value for the... More

We took a Pletna boat across to island which was a great experience. The young guy that rowed us was very friendly and told us all about his boat (it is handed down through the family). The island itself is lovely with picture perfect views all the way around, but especially looking back to the castle. We didn't go into... More

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
