This itinerary offers a broad experience of some of the best sights in the country. From the lively capital, Ljubljana, the ever-popular lakes Bled and Bohinj, to the underground marvel of Postojna and picturesque Piran, Slovenia will amaze you with its natural beauty, spectacular scenery, friendly locals and rich history.
Stay in Ljubljana, conveniently located in the middle of the country, giving you the opportunity to explore more places without long and tedious drives. Each day will bring you to a different part of Slovenia and you will get to explore the mountainous north, the mediterranean south, the unique and mysterious karst and the blend of modern with old in the very centre.
The sightseeing in this tour package is set at a comfortable pace, so you will have plenty of time to explore everything, and still packed with activities that will give you something to reminisce about for years to come.
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.
Despite being small, Slovenia’s coast is a real gem. The most famous town, Piran, will charm you with its architecture and you will struggle to take your finger off the camera’s shutter. But walking around Piran is just one of the highlights for this day, as we will also visit the reason Piran was so successful in the Middle Ages - the production of sea salt. All in all, a great day out!
The last day in Ljubljana will be more leisurely with plenty of free time to do some more sightseeing or just relaxing. You will visit 2 of the most interesting museums in the town, Ljubljana City Museum with Ljubljana’s history and exciting exhibitions (and a cafe with great coffee!) and Plečnik’s House Museum, the once home of Ljubljana’s famous architect, where you will be able to enter the mind of this mastermind behind Ljubljana’s architecture. What better way to finish your holiday!
