Depart the port in Koper and head north, to the Slovenian Alps, where you can find Lake Bled, the famous attraction in Slovenia. Nestled between mountains, this is a stunning sight, which you should not miss while stopping in Slovenia. With its charming island, it attracts visitors from all over the world and yes, it is as beautiful as in the photos. You can enjoy your guide’s information on the area, as well as local legends and stories and then choose to explore this alpine resort on your own. There are beautiful trails along the lake shore, a stunning parish church and plenty of cafes and restaurants, as well as shops to keep you busy.
You will be able to choose between two popular experiences:
Bled Castle, the oldest castle in Slovenia with a history of over 1000 years. Visit its interesting exhibitions and find local souvenirs in the castle’s shop. Here you can also taste the famous “Kremšnita” cream cake – trust us, you don’t want to miss it.
Or you can embark on the traditional “pletna” boat and let the oarsmen do the work while you sit back and enjoy the remarkable scenery of the surrounding mountains and the tranquillity of the green waters. Walk around the small island or visit the scenic church, famous for its wishing bell.
After Bled, we will continue to Ljubljana, located in the very heart of Slovenia. It a must-see for any visitor. It will charm you with its laid-back vibes, the buzz on the river banks of Ljubljanica and its stunningly pretty architecture, that spans through centuries. Let your guide take you on a journey through history, where you will learn all about the famous dragon and other local legends. Stop at landmarks, such as Prešeren Square, Three Bridges, the Dragon Bridge, Central Market, Congress Square and enjoy the small streets of the charming old town.
