Today, I'm posting a colorful pletno

You can sail across the lake and the island in a variety of ways, including a traditional boat calledpletna.Pletne is made by the locals and is known only in Bled, and its origin goes back to 1590. It can be recognized from far away, as it has a colorful canvas roof that protects from the sun and other weather phenomena. This is a flat-bottomed wooden vessel, modeled after the Venice gondola, but it also has its own peculiarities. The braid ends at the forehand, while the stern is widened by a threshold that allows passengers to enter. The boat is 7 meters long and 2 meters wide and provides safe navigation for 18 people. Powered by a special “stehrudder” technique, standing and with two oars.

  1. I was just recently watching a video about Bled, and the country of Slovenia. Bled as I recall is a resort town near the beautiful Julian Alps, next to Lake Bled. I think it must be a wonderful country to live in. A fascinating story about the Pletna, In my language, Afrikaans, our name for a flat bottomed boat is Plat boom boot, almost similar don’t you think? Thanks for sharing, Lado.

    • Thank you for your visit and nice comment…..you remember everything very well …. it is a very tourist place ….. in summer it is almost impossible to access Bled ….. the infrastructure is very bad ….. they can be up to 5 km of car column .. … but the names of the boats are very similar …. interesting
