Explore unique combination of Baroque and Art Nouveau architecture and masterful creations by the 20th century architect Jože Plečnik.
Ride on a traditional wooden "pletna" boat to Bled island and ring the fortune bell
Climb up Bled Castle and enjoy the surrounding alpine scenery
Discover two of Slovenia's most spectacular sites – the famous Bled with its iconic lake and the one and only island in Slovenia together with Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia. The tour is the perfect combination of untouched nature and the capital's bustling vibe.
Just a short drive from Zagreb, there lies Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia. The guided tour includes a walk through the old town, pass numerous Baroque and Art Nouveau architectural masterpieces of the 20th century including the rich legacy of Jože Plečnik, the famous architect that shaped this city into a unique tourist attraction.
You will get to know the locals’ daily life: why Triple Bridge is actually triple, where locals buy food, how Napoleon was one of the most popular politicians, why Slovenia really lives with LOVE in its name, and more. After the tour you will most likely feel like one of the locals rather than just on a friendly visit. Free time for your own explorations afterwards.
After Ljubljana it is time to head north, towards the magical Alpine resort. For centuries Bled has been the symbol of natural beauty and home to fairy tales. Ascend the old 12th-century castle, perched on top of a steep cliff with spectacular views of the lake, the famous Bled island and the surrounding peaks. The castle often houses weddings, cultural events and important protocol meetings, but also a museum of manual printing and a wine cellar.
A boat ride with ‘Pletna’ – traditional boat made by locals, is among the must-do things when visiting Bled. Not only because of the authentic experience, but a true journey back in time. Standing paddlers will take you to the island with 99 stone steps on the way to the Assumption of Mary church and the fortune bell. Make sure not to miss the Bled cream cake, the notorious local dessert, famous all around Slovenia, before leaving town.
