Assumption of Mary pilgrimage Church, Bled, Slovenia

The small island you see in the middle of the lake is home to "Assumption of Mary Pilgrimage Church"; 
Visitors frequently ring its bell for good luck. 
Human traces from prehistory have been found on the island. 
Before the church was built, there was a temple consecrated to Živa, the Slavic goddess of love and fertility. One can get to the island on a traditional flat-bottomed wooden boat (Slovene: pletna).
