Bled Island (Blejski Otok)

You are here Home  > Slovenia  > Gorenjska  > Bled >  Bled Island (Blejski Otok)

This tiny island on Lake Bled is Slovenia’s only island and is home to a pretty church dating from the 8th century. Although it is close enough to the shore to swim to, the most popular way to get to the island is by a small boat, known as a Pletna.

    This islet is absolutely stunning. Weddings are held here and in Slovenian tradition the husband rows his wife across the lake and carries her up 99 stairs to the church.

    Nothing to see except the church. But the view is good.

    One of the most romantic island of the whole world! Don't forget to walk around the island among the green romantic path!

    Take a rowing boat across to the island to visit the church. Be sure to ring the bell for good luck.

    The view from boat going to this island is awesome if there is a clear sky. The view and nature is good but the view at the tower is really bad and to pay for church abd this is really mindless!

    Пометка о времени работы в зимние месяцы звучит как вызов: "If the lake is frozen over, access to the island is at your own risk". P.s. с ноября по март магазин и кафе на острове работают с 9 до 16 =)

    Have a coffee on the island - you can sit by the window and overlook the lake.

    Don't take a pletna boat - rent your own and row across! Shorter boat trip if you rent from town of Mlino so you won't get tired

    Take a traditional "Pletna" boat to the island and ring the bell in the church for good luck! You cannot enter the church in your swimsuit.

    In summer it's nice to swim to the island and then take some time of complete relaxation and meditation before swimming back to the civilization.
