Bodešče (pronounced [bɔˈdɛːʃtʃɛ]) is a village on the left bank of the Sava Bohinjka River in the Municipality of Bled in the Upper Carniola region of Slovenia.

The village church is dedicated to Saint Leonard and was allegedly built on the site of an ancient fort. The church has a covered porch, a square nave, and a narrow Gothic star-vaulted presbytery, dating to the mid-15th century. The church tower has an onion-shaped Baroque wooden crown.[2]
