Main place to visit here Small charge but helps maintain the church itself! Look a great inside well worth the payment might be lucky to see a wedding here! Beautiful island! Nice views

The churches in Bled have such wonderful history and this one on the pretty island in the middle of Lake Bled dates back to 1465. It has such beautiful dedication to Mary the Mother of Christ and the bell has been tolling since the 1500s.
Even today you can hear the bells ring from around the shore of Lake Bled - visitors allowed to give it a pull and it's a spiritual experience that puts one back in touch with the important things in life, a refreshing reminder that the increasing materialism in the western world doesn't really matter in terms of the big picture.

6 Euro to visit a Church and you get to ring a bell.

I think that says it all!

Paying to visit a church just does not seem right to me. Donations yes, charge no!

It was a chilly wet day when we arrived on Bled, the clouds were low and while still beautiful, it was not the way I had imagined it....nut, after we had tea and pastries, the clouds lifted and the sun came out so we went off to get a boat over to the island.....not cheap folks!! When you get top the island you have 99 stairs to climb to get to the church....tough if you have respiratory issues, but take it slow and you'll get there. The church is tiny and doesn't take but a few minutes to look around.....and you've paid 6 Euros to see it so you might as well enjoy it. Climb another hundred stairs and ring the bell, admire the scenery, and X it off your bucket list. It really is a must do part of coming to Bled.
