Pay a visit to the Slovenian capital of Ljubljana and enjoy one of the most livable cities in Europe, with its eclectic mix of modern design and a somewhat rustic, natural style. Book one of our 2015 tours and activities for a travel experience unlike any other.
Explore the capital city with a guided sightseeing tour and funicular ride. See the Old and New Markets and experience a meeting of past and present, as you shop at boutiques, homemade handicraft vendors, and dine at charming restaurants. Stroll through Old Town, whose well-preserved medieval edifices co-exist alongside new designer stores and popular restaurants, as they both occupy a terrific spot along the banks of the Ljubjanica River. See historic monuments and attractions, traveling back in time as you walk past architecture in the Romanesque, Gothic, and Renaissance styles. Also see the Triple Bridge, the Town Hall, and a well that symbolizes the three rivers of Carniola. Visit the Baroque church of St. Nicholas, the local food market, and the Dragon Bridge, before taking up the funicular to Ljubljana Castle and be rewarded with a spectacular view of the city.
Expand your horizons beyond the city limits and travel to Postojna Caves and Predjama Castle. Ride an electric train through an ancient cave system of limestone karst 14 miles in length that dates back over two million years. Marvel at the massive interiors, stunning stalactites and stalagmites, before disembarking for a walking tour through a series of cave halls and admire drop stones, pillars, and curtains. Also get a chance to see the human fish, a fascinating and mysterious creature unique to the cave system. After emerging back into the overworld, proceed to Predjama Castle, where you can have a lovely view of the mountains.
Go further to Bled, perhaps the most popular tourist site in all of Slovenia. Beautiful emerald-green water and an 11th century castle on a cliff make for a magical, fairy-tale site unlike anywhere in the country. Enjoy a day tour of an alpine paradise with prestigious resorts and resplendent environments that was a great tourist destination as far back as the Habsburg Empire era in the 19th century.
