Bled island is the only island in Slovenia. You arrive on the Lake with beautiful wooden boats called Pletna (comes from German word platen – flat-bottomed boat) with a tradition going back to the beginning of the 18th century. Just a 10 minute ride takes you to the island where you can climb 99 steps, visit the church of Assumption of Mary and ring the bell three times to make your wish come true. The church as it is now was built in the end of the 17th century in baroque style but also has some remains of the Gothic period.

OUR TIP: Be careful what you wish for when you ring that bell.
