This island is truly something. It is only a 4 mile walk around the circumference of the lake. Rent a boat from one of the stations and row out to the island to take a look at the church of Assumption!

Picturesque little island in the middle of the lake. Getting there is part of the fun riding in a small covered boat rowed by a single rower - similar to being in Venice, but these rowers use two oars. Church is small but pretty and don't forget to pull the rope to ring the wishing bell. Climb the tower next... More

The 4 mile walk around the lake, the views of the island with a castle, the pletna boats were alll something not to be missed

One of the most beautiful places I've ever been. Take a pletna boat to Bled Island and visit the church. The castle if a must visit for the view and the museum.

Lovely place & friendly people. V hot in late summer and the storm over the lake one night was a true spectacle. Little boats ferry you across the lake to the little island in the centre which has a fascinating church. Everyone is invited to try & ring the bell.

Not a lot there and they want to charge you for everything. Just stroll around for 40 mins and then come back.

Very picturesque. Get a row boat and circle the island for great pics. The church is very cute too. There is nothing to dislike about the place.

Travelled over by Plenta boat from our hotel. Could have done with longer on the island to fully explore the church, gallery, gift shop and cafe. Fascinating history.

This place is very romantic. We went there by boat, but not motor boat. It was rowing boat. There was a guy on offering transport he said that in order not to pollute the lake are banned motor boats, which is very nice. The island is very romantic place at all is generally very pleasant. Its very pleasant and for... More
