    Ljubljana the beloved. It will make you fall in love with it at first glance. It captures you with its warm-hearted character, lively cosmopolitan vibe and warm and welcoming people. Ljubljana has it all big European capital city vibe yet intimate and genuine touch.

    Our guide will meet you on previously agreed place and take you on a sightseeing walk combined with nice wooden boat ride on Ljubljanica river.
    The old city centre offers one-of-a-kind architectural appearance, particularly due to the unique combination of Baroque and Art Nouveau architecture and masterful creations by the 20th century architect Joze Plecnik.
    You will get to know why Triple Bridge is actually triple, where locals buy their food, how Napoleon was one of the most popular politicians, why Slovenia really lives with LOVE in our name and many more...

    By wooden boat head towards Špica where Ljubljanica splits into two, offering a view into nature. We turn back at Livada. On the way, you can enjoy the view of Ljubljana Castle, some of the embassies and newly renewed riverbanks. As we approach the old town, you have a magnificent view of the Cobblers’ Bridge, Franciscan church, Tromostovje or the Triple Bridge, the Market, and charming baroque houses. You get a special view of new bridges such as Butchers’ Bridge or Grain Bridge. We turn again at the famous Dragon Bridge and end the ride at Breg.

    Often described as the ‘Image of Paradise’, the Alpine resort town of Bled will enchant you with its emerald-green lake, fairy-tale like island and imposing castle reigning on top of a rocky cliff. This harmonious mix of beautiful nature, rich history and genuine hospitality has been attracting visitors for centuries. It was here that the Yugoslavia Royal Family once had a summer residence, later replaced by the summer residence of President Tito, which can still be seen by the lake. After an enjoyable drive, we board a traditional ‘pletna’ boat and smoothly glide over the lake to visit the only Slovenian island. Its top is crowned with a little church, and you will have an opportunity to ring the mysterious wishing bell. A scenic road takes us around the lake and to the medieval castle perched high on a cliff.  Built over a thousand years ago, it was once an unconquerable property of the Bishops of Brixen. Today, it attracts visitors with its museum, and demonstrations of old crafts and traditions, not to mention the breath-taking view of the surroundings. Before returning to Ljubljana, enjoy a stroll by the lake or treat yourself to the famous Bled cream-cake.
