About this photo

There are several buildings, including a church, on Slovenia's Bled Island. Built around 1470, the church is still in use today. Couples often marry on the island. It is considered local tradition for the groom to carry his bride up the steps from the dock to the church on their wedding day, and to ring the bell for good luck.
