There was so much to see, and we took a boat ride out here for 12 Euros. You have 30 minutes to see everything (that's how long the boat stays, though there may be an option to stay longer and try to catch another boat if it isn't full - which is the trick). 30 min. is not enough time,... More

The city was interesting to tour. The traditional Slovenian Cream Cake was worth the trip. A small train ride around the lake gave one a quick look at the entire area. The trip to the island to visit the church was a little pricey but worth the money for a once in a lifetime visit.

We rented a rowing boat for 3 hours and decided to row to the island. The island was very picturesque and is home to a church and shop selling gifts, coffee, cakes and ice cream. We stayed on the island for around 20 mins. Many people were visiting the island on the traditional pletna style boats. These boat trips seem... More

Very pretty place. The boat ride to the island is very nice and done by someone rowing the boat. The boat can cost up to 10 to 12 Euro each. Once on the island there is a nice church and place to get gelato. It is basically a pretty place you see from shore, and a place to say you... More

We rented our own boat (10 euros total) and went over by ourselves and just docked the boat and walked around (we didn't pay to go into the church). If you have time it is a fun experience to row over and walk around the little island, but if you are sort on time, I would just take pictures of... More

It's a lovely boat ride that lasts around 20 minutes to get to the island which costs 12 euro per person, though you could opt to rent a paddle boat and get there in your own. Once on the island it's another 8 euro to go up the tower to see the view and to go into the Church And... More

I think 6 euros is too much for what is basically a tiny church. You can climb up the tower but you wouldn't really see any more. The small museum was ok but we went into it before we even went to the church. The island is quite fun to visit but I would skip the church and ringing the... More

Very pretty and magical-looking. I don't like being time-constrained, though. The fact that the Pletna-boat rider only gives you 30 minutes on the island is definitely not enough. (Though he explained to us that with so many visitors a day to the island, this only makes sense.) Anyway, I hate counting minutes, so my greatest enjoyment of this island came... More

Yes, the island is only small, but the trip across was pleasant. The chapel inside is beautiful, and it's a charming little island. Worth the time it takes to visit.
