We really enjoyed this cute little island sitting in the middle of lake bled. It has a unique charm and the small church really helps it too.

Rowed over to have a quick look. Wouldn’t recommend to come all the way here if you’re not interested in Churches. Good view of Bled from the island.

If you walk around the lake, you will be able to see Island from so much different points. You can take a scheduled tour for 11eur per person. Or you can rent a boat for 15eur/hour.

One of the most iconic recognisable places in Slovenia. Your trip to this country would not be complete without coming here in my view. Sure, the cost of such beauty and popularity means the prices are high, especially the pletna (flat bottom boat) trip across...More

The church of St Mary's is the sole reason to visit the island. Plenty of gift shops and cafes etc. The church itself is pretty, good view from the top of the steeple if a bit of a tough climb for the oldies.

It’s the only island in Slovenia, and they take it seriously. It’s a quick visit, small place, but it’s one of most important attractions in the country. The scenario as a whole is beautiful! Fairy tale. The lake, the castle, the church, the island...

No need to book - just go to one of the boats at lakeside and jump on. There are many. All you need to do is decide whether you want man-propelled or motor-propelled.....or self-propelled if you want to row it. The boats... More

As far as i know, you can't. You buy the tickets for the boat from one of the start points.

Yes you can. The water is warmer than you might think. I believe there is a warm stream coming into the lake. If you wish, you can swim to the island.
