Bled lake По-русски →

In the middle of the lake there is an island with a Church of the Assumption

Alps is beautiful at any time of the year. Between the mountains just within 30 km from Ljubljana there is a beautiful glacier lake. This lake in Bled is interesting because in the middle of it there is an island with a church. The Church of the Assumption with 99 stairs to it.

There are a lot of legends about this place. Slovenian writers have been exploiting the romantic and mystic image of the church among the water in their works. One can get to this island only by the boat, which is called "pletna". It looks like gondola but with roof. Legend says that one can make a wish and punch the church bell to make the wish come true.
