Your first stop of the day will be at a manmade wonder -Predjama Castle. This one literally translates to “pre-cave castle”, because it’s perched at the mouth of a cave within a giant cliff. According to the Guinness Book of Records, the Predjama Castle is the largest of its kind in the world. This medieval masterpiece was home to Slovenia’s Robin Hood, Erasmus of Lueg, a 15th century robber baron who constructed a network of underground tunnels to help supply the castle in times of sieges.

Travelling the Slovenian Karst, your next stop will be Postojna Cave. This natural wonder is famous for its unbelievably beautiful cave formations in the form of dripstones, underground halls and passages. People have been visiting Postojna Cave for over 200 hundred years, making it one of the oldest show caves with the world’s first underground railway. On entering the cave, you will board a little train that takes you deep into this magnificent subterranean spectacle. You then proceed to explore the cave’s miracles on foot. Postojna Cave is also home to a species called proteus, an indigenous creature also known as the human fish and lovingly dubbed the “baby dragon”.

The afternoon will be reserved for Ljubljana, one of Europe’s smallest capitals, a beautiful vibrant city that you will fall in love with instantly. Declared the Green Capital of Europe in 2016, Ljubljana’s centre is restricted to traffic, which makes strolling down its cobbled streets incredibly enjoyable. The Old Town is adorned by Baroque and Art Nouveau architecture, including the stunning creations by the internationally acclaimed architect Jože Plečnik, who embellished this subalpine gem with the fascinating Triple Bridge, a covered riverside marketplace and even pyramids. Ljubljana is steeped with history stretching back to Roman times. Its strategic trading position has contributed to the city’s colourful diversity for centuries. Present-day Ljubljana will enchant you with its rich cultural heritage and laidback character on every step of your guided tour, giving you a taste of Slovenia in a nutshell.
