From Ljubljana: Trip to Lake Bled and Bled Castle

1. From Ljubljana: Trip to Lake Bled and Bled Castle

Lake Bled is often mentioned as the pearl of the Slovenian Alpine region due to its emerald-green waters, picture-perfect postcard church on the island, medieval castle on the rocky cliff, and some of the highest peaks of the Slovenian Alps as the background. Take a short walk along the lakeshore as the beauty of the surrounding mountains reflects off the lake surface. No matter the season, you'll enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of the lake and the fresh mountain air.  Perched atop a steep cliff more than 100 meters above the lake, Bled Castle is the iconic image of a medieval fortress, with towers, ramparts, moats and a terrace offering magnificent views. The castle houses a unique treasure - a reconstruction of Gutenberg's wooden printing press, on which the master printer will demonstrate old printing techniques using hand-made paper. Take the Pletna boat, a traditional boat known only to this region, to the tiny tear-shaped island on the lake. Upon returning from the island, stop at the local patisserie and taste Bled’s famous cream cake, kremšnita. In the last 60 years they have sold as many as 12 million of these cakes - they are definitely a can't-miss and a perfect way to top off your day.

Ljubljana: Postojna Cave and Predjama Castle

7. Ljubljana: Postojna Cave and Predjama Castle

Your tour will begin with Postojna Cave, one of the best-known caves in the world. It is also the greatest tourist attraction in Slovenia and one of the world’s largest karst monuments. This is the only place in the world where the underground landscape can be traversed on an electric train and where you can meet this underground kingdom’s most famous inhabitant, the proteus (olm), up close. A fantastic web of tunnels, passages, galleries and halls, astonishing diversity of karst features as well as easy access are certainly the main reasons for the popularity of the cave and a large number of visitors. From here the tour extends to the Predjama Castle which reigns over the surrounding area, not far from the Postojna Cave, in the idyllic village of Predjama. This picturesque, magnificent, defiant, mysterious and impregnable castle has been perched in the middle of a vertical 123-meter high cliff for more than 800 years. Its romantic appeal is further emphasized by the idyllic Lokva River, which disappears into the underground world deep below the castle. As the only preserved cave castle in Europe, the Predjama Castle offers a unique insight into the building techniques and resourcefulness of people in the Middle Ages, who were looking for and found a safe harbor for themselves right at the entrance of the cave. During a siege that took place in the 15th century, the castle provided a refuge for its best known and most notorious owner, Erazem of Predjama. The legend of the courageous robber baron Erazem, who remained undefeated until one of his servants betrayed him, is still in people’s minds, inspiring and alluring as ever. It was this safe abode of his which helped the brave knight resist the besiegers without much difficulty for more than a year.

Had a fantastic day at Lake Bled, Bled Castle and surrounding areas. A tasty traditional Slovenian dish for lunch by Lake Bled. Vasja was a brilliant tour guide of the area, knew loads of history of the area and made sure we were filled with facts and stories of the local area. He was flexible with what we preferred to do with our time on the day and made the trip really special. Really recommend this trip, a great way to visit the areas and with a really friendly tour guide (who showed his passion for Slovenian Ski Jumpers).

Our guide was easy going and very knowledgeable. She was well prepared for children (we had our 8 and 10 yo kids with us). The drive was comfortable and timing unhurried. Piran is a beautiful historic seaside town with a lot of interest. We also drove through neighbouring seaside towns as our guide gave us insight into the history of the area. Lipica is interesting if you enjoy horses (which I do) but I still think Piran and the associated commentary was the highlight.

Great tour! Ended up just being the two in our party as no one else had booked. Fantastic day with “Basil”, with plenty of time in Lipica and Piran, plus some wonderful stops for local food and drink. It felt more like hanging out with a friend than a tour. The horses and city are beautiful and it was a great way to get a taste of a lovely area. I’d love to go back and stay longer.

We had a wonderful day exploring lake Bled. We got a boat over to the island and walked for miles. We had a slice of 'Bled cake' at the Devil's cafe, which is right by the boats as recommended by our guide. Delicious

Fantastic experience! Our guide was so lovely and the food/drink was great! Would definitely recommend ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
