Short Break in Slovenia

Itinerary

Day 1: Arrival, Ljubljana

Our agent will welcome you at the Jože Pu?nik Airport Ljubljana and take you to your hotel for check-in. You will have time for unpacking and lunch and in the afternoon, our tour guide will take you on a panoramic sightseeing tour of Ljubljana, proclaimed by the European institutions the ‘European Green Capital 2016’. To feel its cosy urban vibe, we will walk through the scenic Old Town and see its main attractions, from Prešeren Square and Tromostovje (Triple Bridge) to Town Square with its baroque fountain and Town Hall. We will walk up the Ljubljana Castle Hill and admire its panoramic view of this lovely city. Overnight stay in Ljubljana.

 

Day 2: Postojna Cave, Predjama Castle, Lake Bled

After breakfast, we will visit the Postojna Cave, one of the largest Karst landmarks in the world. An electric train will take us through the tunnels of the cave, which is with its 20 km long cave system the most impressive and the most visited cave in Europe. We will be able to spot human fish, the most famous cave animals in the world that used to be believed to be dragon offspring. We will continue with a tour of the mighty Predjama Castle from the 12th century, mounted on a 123 m high cliff above the Lokva River. There are many mysterious tales and legends about the castle and its knights. The                      most famous of them all is the story of Knight Erazem of Predjama, who rebelled in the 15th century against the emperor and became the first Slovenian Robin Hood. Today’s castle is from the Renaissance period and incorporates a museum. In the afternoon, we will drive to another part of Slovenia – Gorenjska (Upper Carniola) Region – to the most renowned tourist place in Slovenia, Lake Bled. En route, we will visit the magnificent Vintgar Gorge nearby (typically open April – November). Bled is a place for relaxation and enjoyment and you can decide how you want to spend the next few hours                      at the resort by choosing from the possibilities you will learn about. Our guide can take you on a tour of the majestic Bled Castle (optional), which is located on a steep 139 m high cliff overlooking the lake and offers a heavenly view of Lake Bled, as well as the surrounding alpine mountain tops and valleys. Bled Castle, first mentioned in 1011, is one of the oldest Slovenian castles. You can admire the old wooden Gutenberg printing press and the castle’s smithy, while Bled Castle is also famous for being one of the most beautiful wedding venues in Europe. Alternatively, you can take a pleasant walk around the lake or join a ‘pletna’ boat ride to the island in the middle of the lake, which is named after the town of Bled and is, in fact, the only island in Slovenia. You can take a look at an impressive medieval church and its                         ‘wishing bell’. After that experience, you can take some time to treat yourself to a good cup of coffee, enjoying the beautiful view of the lake at the foot of Pokljuka and tasting the traditional local dessert ‘kremšnita’ (cream cake),  which has been made in Bled for over 60 years. Return to Ljubljana in the evening, overnight stay in Ljubljana.

 

 

 

Day 3: Trieste, Piran, Portorož

We will begin this adventure by hopping across the Italian border to visit Trieste, a city of great importance for the Habsburg dynasty and ruled by many more throughout history, with the second largest port in Italy. We will visit the city centre and the mesmerising Miramare Castle (entrance optional), built by Archduke Ferdinand Maximilian I for himself and his wife Charlotte of Belgium. It shows its visitors an example of a luxurious aristocratic residence, which has preserved its original furnishings. The Slovenian coastal road will lead us to the lovely town of Piran, also called ‘little                    Venice’. We will walk through its narrow streets and beautiful squares up to the church of St. George to see the view of three countries – Slovenia, Italy and Croatia, as well as nearby salt fields. The salt there is acquired from the sea in a unique, traditional and natural way: with the help of the sun, petola mud and wind. Afterwards, we will head to Portorož, the modern capital of Slovenian tourism. Return to Ljubljana in the evening. Overnight stay in Ljubljana.

 

Day 4: Lipica Stud Farm, Škocjan Caves

We will start today’s excursion by visiting the City of Lipica. It is an important equestrian center from the times of the Habsburgs. The main attraction of Lipica is a stud farm, where you will have the unique opportunity to observe horses in pasture. Our trip will continue to the Škocjan Caves, listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. The Škocjan Caves system consists of caves, through which the Reka River flows, which represent the most important underground phenomenon in the Karst. Return to Ljubljana in the afternoon, overnight stay in Ljubljana.
