Taking the pletna to only island in Slovenia will be a unforgettable memory of your holiday in Lake Bled. The small island in Lake Bled is Slovenia’s only island and is dominated by the prettiest of churches dating back to around the 17th Century known as the Church of St Mary. After climbing the stairway up to the church remember to make a wish and try ringing the church bell, the story being that if you succeed your wish will come true. The wishing well dates back to 1534. Visiting the island is a must on your Lake Bled holiday and is reached by a small boat known as a Pletna, this boat ride takes about 25 minutes each way. You will have time to look around the island and the church before you are returned to Bled. Lake Bled is just 10 meters away from our Lake Bled apartments and you can also rent our private boat.
