The island houses several buildings, including a 17th century church that still holds weddings! The island is accessible from the Lake shore by a short boat ride. Make sure your visit isn't too close to sunset, as most boats will refuse to get to the island once the sun has set. There is free entry to the Church, but some... More

You can't go to Bled without taking a pletna boat trip to the island. The church is worth a visit and there's a nice café. The views are spectacular

Take the time to stroll or ride around the lake. Easy ride, bike hire at most hotels. Some interesting sights along the way.

Take a relaxing boat ride to the island where you have to take 99 steps up to the well preserved church. The guide told us that for newly weds who visit the island, the groom is expected to carry his bride jp the steps! Be sure to make a wish and ring the bell thrice at the church. You may... More

If you rent boat, you should stop here, to climb the clock tower you have to pay a fee, I think is overpriced for just climbing it and watching a clock and a view blocked by a net. There's also a church where you can pull a rope to make a bell ring and keep annoying everyone outside with the... More

The church on this beautiful island is being lovingly restored. I was there many years ago, and cried tears of joy to see the way it sparkles now.

To get there you will have to take one of the boat rides. We took ours for 12 Euros each person. The ride was wonderful and we had a scenic view of Lake Bled. So the trip itself will be a scenic boat ride plus you get to tour the island.

The scenic is beautiful. Sailing on the lake is providing with one more angle We took a small boat for one hour. It was enough to reach the island, walk around and even eat an ice cream. I think it is a must for families, very well spent hour.
