Island Steeple

A snapshot from Bled

By / June 2013

In the middle of Lake Bled, opposite the tiny town of the same name, there is an island dominated by a Catholic church dedicated to the Virgin Mary. Located deep in the Alps of northwestern Slovenia, 30-some miles from the capital city of Ljubljana, Bled has become one of the top destinations in Slovenia. The church, accessible via 99 steps from the island shore, is a popular spot for weddings.
