“Nice. Interesting.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2013

When in Bled, nice to do and see. Yes need to get there by row boat, but if join others its about 15 euro for round trip. You will find boats at a few location. Church is interesting; two stories (1) from water up to Church some 96 steps; the story is that the bridegroom needs to carry in his hands the bride UP all these stairs. (Note: do only if bride on the skinny side!) (2) Ring the bell in the Church and you will get you wish...maybe! Boat waits for you. Nice coffee and gift shop so take your time.

“Lovely and peaceful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

This is a must do when visiting Bled. Take the special boat journey to the island and experience tranquility...provided you go early in the morning. Best if you arrive on the island around 8:30 as the tour groups seem to show up around 9 or 9:15.

“It's the Only "Attraction" on Bled Island and Not That Great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

We traveled there by boat (obviously) and seeing at it is the only "attraction" on the island, you had to see it. It was fairly inexpensive for entrance to the church, like 6 euro for family, however other then taking a picture and ringing the church bell, there is nothing grand to see. Ringing the bell was fun though as I have never done that before in any church I have visited throughout Europe. You figure after rowing yourself (or being rowed to the island) you mind as well see what they island has to offer. Other then the 10 minutes we spent in the church and a quick stop for some ice cream, traveling back or walking the small island is your only option. This is something worth doing once.

“No particular attraction.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013

Took boat to the island to visit this church. No particular attraction except to ring the bell. Had to pay 6 euro (family) as entrance fee for a visit that lasted not more than 10 mins.

“Average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013

The only thing i enjoyed about the church was that i could ring the bell, in rest it is just a church.
The rest of the island and the views around are much better.
