The loveliest and greenest capital Ljubljana will be your starting point. After a sufficient dose of sightseeing and indulging in local gastronomy, you will head north to the Alpine region. The stunning Lake Bled area with its ancient castle, church island and other fascinating spots will keep you highly entertained. Next on the agenda are the wild treasures nestled in the incredibly captivating Triglav National Park: Lake Bohinj, Slovenia’s largest lake, and Soča Valley area, where time stands still and the pristine environment invites into its magical ambience.
Driving south, the landscape changes before your eyes as you head towards the enchanting Karst. Known for its incredible countryside and breath-taking subterranean world, the Karst is a superb introduction to your next destination – the Slovenian coast. There, the Mediterranean climate prevails and the seaside towns of Piran, Koper and Portorož present you with another side of Slovenia. So close to the mountains yet so very far in character, the seaside once again reminds visitors of Slovenia’s fantastic diversity. Then it’s back to Ljubljana through a special stretch of the Karst, where pitstops like the Postojna Cave and the medieval marvel of Predjama Castle will make sure the last leg of your journey is as inspiring as the first.
