This tour gives you the best of both worlds – taking in Slovenia’s capital, and one of the country’s top beauty spots. Ljubljana is hailed as the next Prague, with its thriving café culture and mishmash architecture. Your guide will point out the must-sees, including Ljubljana Castle, and then you’ll have some free time to explore. Take a close look at the buildings, and you’ll spot the mix of Renaissance, Baroque and Art Nouveau architecture. Next, you’ll make the panoramic drive to Lake Bled. Postcard-worthy views are on tap here. It’s all mountains, lakes and trees as far as the eye can see. You’ll visit the museum at Castle Bled, which sits on a cliff overlooking the lake, and learn about the town’s history. There’s also a tiny island at the lake’s centre, which is home to the iconic Church of the Assumption of Mary. You’ll definitely want to have your camera at the ready for this one.
