Full description
Just 45 minutes north of Ljubljana, there lies the magical Alpine resort, Bled with its magical lake. Ascend the old castle, perched on top of a steep cliff above the lake, and take some time to enjoy spectacular views of the surroundings from the castle's terraces. A boat ride on a ‘Pletna’ – a traditional boat made by locals -  is mandatory when visiting Bled. Reach the only true island in Slovenia, ring the ‘fortune bell’ and soak up the sun, peace and fresh mountain air. Afterwards, stop for tastings of some local food products in Bled.

Then it's time to head south to discover the mysteries of the Slovenian karst in the Postojna cave. The guided tour of the cave takes you on a ride by electrical train and a walk through the beautiful passages and chambers with spectacular drop stones, pillars, limestone curtains, and other extraordinary wonders of the underground world. Afterwards, enjoy tasting some local spirits in Postojna.

Continue to the idyllic village of Predjama to enjoy the medieval fairytale of the amazing Predjama castle, the largest cave castle with its dramatic setting in the gaping mouth of a cavern half-way up a hillside. Learn about the legend of a famous knight, Erasmus – the ‘Slovenian Robin Hood’ and other local folk traditions before heading back to Ljubljana.
