Ever since I had seen pictures of Lake Bled on Rick Steves Europe, it was a top runner on my bucket list. And it lived up to expectations. It is peaceful in Spring, without the crazy load of tourists..the 99 steps to the top lead to a quiet peaceful church, with an awesome bakery.. God does understand priorities..! There are... More

I was here in 2008 and it is still my wallpaper background. Rick Steves has Bled in his beginning credits. Need I say more. If you want to see one of Europe's most romantic sites this is it.

To get to the island is very easy. You can't go on boat or rent a kayak. On the island is a church and you can take a little walk around the island. It is very touristy though

Average might not sound like much of an endorsement but I do not regret visiting and I would recommend visiting if you are at Lake Bled. The average is an indication that there really isn't very much on the island and that once you have walked around it, rung the bell in The Church of the Assumption and climbed the... More

It is a lovely short trip across Lake Bled to the island. Once there walk up the steps to the island which is dominated by the church. It is a very pretty church but the real attraction is the bell. Make it ring 3 times and your wish comes true but don't bother wishing for money as that is excluded.... More

Forget a pletna ride. Rent a boat and row out to Bled Island. We rented a boat at the far side of the lake, toward the end of our beautiful walk around the lake. It was 10 Euros per hour. I rowed my wife and I out to the island. I canoe often but had never rowed a row boat... More

This was a very beautiful island. The trip there was better than when we actually arrived since we rented a rowing boat for an hour which was fun and cheap at 12 euros. There was not a lot on the island itself although the shop and cafe were good.

Our group was taken to the island by a boat similar to a gondola but wider with the man doing the rowing from the back of the boat. The day we went was a beautiful and sunny day which made the excursion much nicer. One on the island you go up a flight of steps or else if you have... More

This might be the most magical place on earth. The pletna ride out to the island was absolutely breath-taking. My husband, who is from Romania and has seen lots of European sites, said he could hardly believe that such a place existed where one could be frolicking short sleeves under majestic snow-capped mountains. One can also swim to the Island... More
