We visited the island and Church of Assumption. Interesting church and we get to ring the church bells and make our wishes! Highly recommended visit.

The view from the clock tower was good but nothing compared to the castle. The workings of the clock I found fascinating. The church itself is sweet with a healthy collection of art throughout. They were renovating one corner so we didn’t get to see...More

Our Pletna took us to the Pilgrimage Church of the Assumption of Maria. You must climb a steep staircase which is 99 steps to the top and after about 10 of them, you wish you hadn’t of had your last desert. At the very top...More

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.

It was totally worth it to take a boat to Bled Island in the middle of Lake Bled to see the inside of the Church of the Assumption. Beautiful! Must Do: There is a rope attached to the church bell... if you can pull it...More

The church is emblematic for the lake Bled. In the postcard it looks better because photos are taken from the above, but in reality you cannot really distinguish the island. The church is peaceful and very nice, you can ring the bell for good luck.

I expect the main reason people go in the Church is to ring the wishing bell - just like we did! Not much else to see other than this...

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
