This is the view looking the other way from my last upload. Lake Bled surrounds Bled Island (Blejski otok), the only natural island in Slovenia. The island has several buildings, the main one being the pilgrimage church dedicated to the Assumption of Mary(Cerkev Marijinega vnebovzetja), built in its current form near the end of the 17th century. The church has a 52 m (171 ft) tower and there is a stairway with 99 steps leading up to the building. Weddings are held there regularly and traditionally it is considered good luck for the groom to carry his bride up the 99 steps on the day of their wedding before ringing the bell and making a wish inside the church.
