Visit the church, but make some time for walking around the island, sit down and have some of that local creme cake.

We took one of the pletna boats out to the island and I really enjoyed the experience of being rowed there. You get a very different perspective on Bled Castle as you see it from another angle. Once you arrive on the island the 99 steps to reach the church are a bit of a nuisance but it's worth the... More

It is a nice place to visit. The best part was getting there by boat. A very small place, not a lot to see, but it gives you another perspective and view of the lake and its surroundings

Hired a little row-boat to bring us to the Island. Very cosy tour. Beautiful island. There is a little cafe and nice shop. It seems that there is a charge if you want to go into the church.

Hired a rowing boat for four of us to dog to the island. Good value at 18 Euros - much better value then 14 Euros each they charge for the manned boats. It's quite a pretty island with just a Church, cafe and shop. The island itself felt slightly commercialised - you had to pay 7 Euros each to go... More

We booked visit to Bled island ar Ljubljana bus station when we bought bus tickets. When we go to the boat man he told us that out tickets are only to the Church on island and we also get a piece of potita with that voucher. But definitely we need to pay another 28 eur for the boat trip. Finally... More

We hired a rowing boat from a nearby rental place. 15 euro for an hour. It took us 20 minutes there and 15 minutes back so we had sufficient time for the great ice cream and a walk around the island. Just beautiful.

Went to island on gondola as part of day trip, normal price for this is 12 euros. You are allowed 30 minutes on the island. There are 99 steps up to the church and it costs 6 euros if you want to go into it. Nothing to do but walk around island and look at views. You get better views... More

One of the top tourist attractions in Slovenia and in the Bled area. Luckily our bus dropped off us at the foot of the castle, but there is still some walking to do. Good views of the area. Inside, there is a museum to walk through and several shops and eateries. Cost is 10 euros per person. Brochures are available... More

We rented a boat on a nice July afternoon (15 euro per hour + 8 euro per additional hour), and paddled to Bled island. It takes about 1/2 hour to get there. Not much to see on the island except from the nice church on top of the small hill. You can buy tickets and go up the bell tower... More
