The gondola ride takes about 1 1/2 hours round trip. 20 min there and 20 back and the rest gives you time to browse around the island and church. You might see a wedding while you are there. Tradition is that the groom has to...More

Was really looking forward to it, but in the end was disappointed. The place is meant to be tranquil and pletna boats authentic, but far too touristy for that. The church is just like any other thousands of similar churches in Slovenia or Austria. If...More

Have to do it. The only island in Slovenia. Pretty church and you get to ring the bell & make a wish! You need to be reasonably agile as the only way there is by boat. A hundred steps up from the shore but there...More

It wouldn't be a visit to Bled if you didn't ride a plenta boat to the island. It is rather pricey and touristy but asks yourself, when will you be back to do it again? Once on the island, you can get beautiful views of...More

Cost around $20pp, but water is clear and a nice ride or you can walk around entire lake for free which has a nice path.

Visited for a wedding, beautiful church and stunning scenery, shame that the alter and bell tower were covered in scaffolding for restoration work but did not spoil the day. Little cafe was nice for coffee and ice creams and we all loved the boat trip...More

Yes you can. The water is warmer than you might think. I believe there is a warm stream coming into the lake. If you wish, you can swim to the island.
