Ljubljana is often called an European jewel or a small blend of Prague and Amsterdam. It's a 'town with a soul', as visitors often comment.

The vibrant old town is concentrated along the Ljubljanica river and the Castle on a hill still looks like it's protecting the romantic city below. We are going to stroll along medieval streets, admire an interesting blend of different architectural styles, 'see' and 'be seen' on several famous promenades along the river, discover some of its hidden monuments, enjoy in the town's greenery and learn about stories and fairytales which connect present and past.

From Ljubljana to Bled, the magnificent alpine resort. Ascend the old castle perched on top of a steep cliff above the glacial Lake Bled. Castle terraces offer spectacular views of the lake and its tiny island in the middle. Will take a boat ride with 'Pletna' - traditional boat made by locals and reach the only island in Slovenia. We'll end our tour by relaxing by the lake and taste Bled's famous vanilla cake.
