The pilgrimage Church of the Assumption of Mary is beautiful renovated, decorated with gothic frescos and rich baroque equipment. The weddings are held here regularly. Inside the church is the bell and before ringing you must make a wish.

After rowing over to the island which was quite easy, plenty of places to tie up your boat.....then climbing the 99 steps and the views are amazing. A small charge to enter this beautiful church, so serene and peaceful you can ring the bell 3 times and make a wish. Sitting and admire the artwork, so beautifull .... then you... More

It may cost 6 euros for this and the tower, but if you've rowed all the way over (which I would highly recommend) you should do this. When in the church, you can take your go at ringing the bell using the rope. It's also a pretty enough church, and we managed to just avoid the big group of tourists... More

This lovely little church sits on top of the island on Lake Bled! You ring the bell 3 times and make a wish!

After you've already been gouged around 12 EUR to get to the island, you're then expected to fork out again to see the interior of the church. Not really worth it - after all, there are plenty of other churches in Eastern Europe (although admittedly not in such a picturesque setting). Looks good from the outside though.

there were some workers with scaffolding inside but they didn't really block viewing any of the items to see, just not the nicest to have in part of the pictures. but i'm sure they won't be there too long. they do have a church bell you can ring if you have paid to enter in. that is pretty kewl as...

It was great to hear that this church is still in use now days. So many are just tourist attractions. Small, clean and well kept, this church has a few beautiful frescos and a golden altar. ring the bell three times if you can( very difficult) and your wish will come true, is what is believed by locals. Well worth... More

It is quite expensive to enter the church and tower, around 6 Euros. There are a few stone carvings to see on the way in, and the interior of the church is ornate, especially the altarpiece, but no more so than a number of churches around that you can visit for free. The bell tower is quite an easy climb... More
