Bred Island is a small tear-shaped island floating in the middle of Lake Bled in northwestern Slovenia.
On the island sits Pilgrimage Church of the Assumption of Mary, a Baroque church established in 1534.
The mountains and forests surrounding the lake add to the picturesque view of the church. During the winter, the frost over the island looks like a scene from a Disney movie. Tourists enjoy hiking around the lake and rowing in its peaceful waters during the summer.
Bred island is the only natural island in Slovenia. It’s also the country’s most popular destination. Straight out of a fairy-tale, we can all see why this little island is a real treasure.
