With the Pletna boat across the lake

You cannot miss one of the Lake Bled activities. As soon as you arrive at the lake shore you cannot miss the Pletna boats. Pletna boats are waiting on Lake Bled. We had already observed them from our hotel balcony. They transport their passengers across to the island in the lake. There is a chapel from the 15th century, which can be reached via a staircase. It is said that wishes come true at the wish bell. We prefer to watch the pletna rowers as they poke their boats evenly across the lake.

The port for the Pletna boats is on Bled Beach.
