Not much to look at but if you're in Bled, a short oar driven boat ride will take you to the only island in Slovenia and to a church with a bell you can ring to bless your marriage.

Having been rowed over in a traditional rowing boat I made sure to ring the bell in the church, whilst making a wish. Great chance to take photographs at a height of the surroundings.
