Charming old church that can be reached by boat. Ring the bell for good luck and climb the tower for some more good views. Cafe over there and also some decent little gift/souvenir shops.

The outside and inside of the church are pretty and ringing the bell for our wish was fun. Also you can get some nice photos.

This church on the island in the middle of the lake is a lovely place to visit. It is simple and small and is in a setting that could not be more beautiful

Church of the Assumption is a beautiful small chapel on Bled Island. The chapel is in a awesome setting. Be sure and pull the rope in front of the alter to ring the bell for good luck.

There are 3 things to see on this island and it is one of them. There were 100 steps from the pier leading up to the church. The church was nice.

Yes I believe you would fit into a rowing boat. I don't remember seeing any life jackets. If you prefer, you can cross in a motorised boat, or a large gondala style boat instead. Not sure about child admission to church as... More
