We (family of 4) just took a pletna (traditional row boat tour) to go see the church in the middle of the lake in Bled. The boat operator never told us at what time we needed to come back or that we needed to come...More

Aljaz our boat operator was very pleasant, this added to the experience. Do not pay more than 14 euros. Also, expect to pay 6 more to visit the church, rip off but got to do it. The charge includes the church and bell tower, you...More

Our boatman did not introduce himself nor say anything before our boat ride started. The only words he mentioned after reaching the Bled Island were regarding our departure time: that we should all be back at the boat at 12:00 p.m. After the ride was...More

We were staying at the Grand Hotel Toplice and the boats were about a 20 minute walk away. We arrived at the boat landing and we were directed into this old fashioned wooden boat by the oarsman. They are several of these boats and the...More

Down the hill from Bled Castle we boarded a historic row boat called the Pletna Boat. There are various ways to take a trip across the lake or to the island. One of them includes a trip in this traditional boat made by locals in...More

I lucked out by getting a lift in a pletna that had been hired by a S. Korean group, but there very was room for one more. Despite the constant rain, it was a most pleasant trip. Alex, the rower, was very informative, and gave...More
