Very beautiful! Even though it's so small! but the journey by the pletna boat and the stairs to the church are very beautiful! I absolutely recommend! Don't forget to ring the bell!

The island is very picturesque and has its own church called the Church of the Assumption of Mary, an ancient structure dating back to the 1400's. Our guide told us that it is favourite spot for weddings and many grooms carry their bride up the many steps to the church. To get to the island you have 2 choices, read... More

This island in the middle of Bled lake is better appreciated from the shore. Do yourself a favour and save the 14 Euros which is the price for the 10 minute boat trip. Go to the Belvedere cafe ( Tito's old tea house and part of his old summer residence) and have a coffee and cake. The view from here... More

Bled Island is very cute. Its accessible through a small boat that our tour had organised. It's a very small island and just has a small church on it. My group couldn't stay long on the island since it was a rainy day but it was definitely a joy to check it out.

Let's just say the island looks better from the shore than the shore from the island. Entering the church costs 6 euros but you dont have to enter.

We recently visited Bled in Slovenia. An amazingly beautiful place. We sat and enjoyed the calm boat ride to the little island in the middle of the lake. Walk up the sixty or so stairs to the top of the island with its lovely church and interesting museum. We didn't dine here as we were staying in Bled but the... More

The trip to the island takes about 20 mins depending on the weather in one of the boats that park on the edge of the lake- price rather pricey @ 14 euros return - the church is reached by a steep flight of stairs or a steep walk on a round path - cost to enter the church is 6... More

A visit to Bled would not be complete without visiting the island as well. How to get there? The easiest way is to take a ride on one of the pletna boats with a group of like minded tourists. My preferred way is to rent a boat and row yourself. In addition to the pleasure of being there, it gives... More

Take the electric or traditional boat, the latter much more enjoyable. Most boats allow you to look around for approximately 45 mins. Lots to see and do. Looks beautiful lit up at night. Need to be able to climb lots of steps.
