This is the perfect city break for first-time visitors who want to take in the sights in one holiday package and prefer to stay in one location. Base yourself in Ljubljana, the old and charming capital of Slovenia, that will undoubtedly steal your heart with its easy-going atmosphere. Explore the old town and the main attractions on a walking tour with a visit to the majestic Ljubljana Castle.
Spend a day exploring the beautiful alpine region of the popular Lake Bled and the neighbouring Lake Bohinj, stroll through the stunning Vintgar Gorge and take in the majestic scenery of the Slovenian mountains.
Don’t miss out on Postojna Cave, the most visited attraction in Slovenia, and marvel at nature’s spectacular work of underground passageways and caverns, which draw in almost a million visitors every year.
Your city break allows for some free time as well, so you will be able to spend your time as you choose and feel well rested between your activities.
Meet Ljubljana, a cosy, relaxed capital that will charm you straight away! Spend your day exploring the city’s main sights and attractions on a walking tour through the old town and enjoy a leisurely boat ride on Ljubljanica River, where you will be able to see why this is considered one of the greenest capitals in Europe. We will also be visiting Ljubljana Castle, a mighty fort overlooking the city, which offers one of the best views not only of Ljubljana but also the Alps in the north. You will have some free time to get settled and just to enjoy the town’s lively atmosphere.
The Slovenian Alps are something everyone raves about. We will head out early in the morning to the most famous attraction in Slovenia - Lake Bled and enjoy a morning boat ride to the picturesque island in the middle. Later, we will head up to Bled Castle, take in the best views of the area and have a lunch break in the center of the resort time, where you can also take a stroll or try a famous dessert, kremšnita. After Bled, the afternoon will be split between Vintgar Gorge* and Lake Bohinj, Bled’s less-known neighbour, a stunning part of Triglav National Park.
Another day, another must-see! We are off to Postojna Cave, the queen of caves, where a small electric train will take you underground for a unique experience. The dripstones and the halls of this cave are so spectacular that any description fails to do them justice. A short drive away from Postojna, we will pass by Predjama Castle as well, a unique structure with mysterious stories and a wonderful photo-stop.
