Full description
Ljubljana, the capital and largest city in Slovenia, is the cultural, educational, economic, political and administrative center of the country. It is renowned for its rich history, reflected in its wonderful architectural heritage. Its old town center is embraced by Ljubljana Castle and the River Ljubljanica, where the feeling of the city is strongest. On this trip, you will encounter ancient and modern architecture. You will visit the old town center where you'll admire the works of the Slovene architect Jože Plečnik, who took an important part in designing Ljubljana’s most famous bridges, town squares and parks. In little more than 3 decades, Jože Plečnik transformed Ljubljana from a provincial city to the capital of the Slovene nation, and re-shaped the urban part of the city. His influence can be felt everywhere, but mostly along the river Ljubljanica.

On this trip, you will visit some of the most interesting buildings and monuments, such as the Ljubljana Town Hall, the Triple Bridge, the Shoemakers’ Bridge, Ljubljana Cathedral, the Robba Fountain, Prešeren Square, Congress Square and other attractions. The symbol of the city is the Ljubljana Dragon, depicted on the top of the tower of Ljubljana Castle and on the Ljubljanica – crossing Dragon Bridge. It symbolizes power, courage and greatness.

Bled is an Alpine town which represents one of the oldest and most beautiful tourist destinations in Slovenia. Its main attraction is the lake which surrounds Bled Island. The island has several buildings, the main one being the Gothic church dedicated to the Assumption of Mary. The church has a make-a-wish bell, and is frequently visited by newlyweds and other guests. Lake Bled will certainly leave you speechless, since it offers various sport activities and represents a place where you can spend the most romantic moments of your life.  Take a walk around the lake enjoying the fresh alpine air and watch swans and ducks at play. Admire Bled Castle built on a precipice above the glacial lake, which according to written sources is the oldest Slovene castle. At the end, you will pass by some other local monuments and refresh yourself with a delicious vanilla and custard cream cake called cremeschnitte (kremšnita). You will also have a chance to take some beautiful photos of the lake, island, castle and the nearby Alps.
