Citybreak highlights

Ljubljana

Ljubljana, the charming capital of Slovenia is one of its top 3 attractions, and it is a perfect base to enjoy any day trips in Slovenia. Explore its medieval old town and the old Roman ruins, admire the river banks and bridges of the Ljubljanica river, and take the funicular up to Ljubljana castle for great views of the city and the Alps. Relax in Tivoli park and in the numerous restaurants and cafés where people of all ages meet. Marvel in the architectural beauties, marked by influences of neighbouring Italian and Viennese styles of the previous centuries.

Lake Bled

A trip to Bled, one of Slovenia's top attractions, must be a part of any visit to Slovenia. We visit Lake Bled, the/a world-famous Alpine lake renowned for a medieval castle perched on a cliff above the lake. We visit the museum at Bled castle and enjoy the bird’s eye view of the lake and its island with the Church of the Assumption.

We take a traditional pletna boat to Bled island. Time permitting, we go for a short stroll along the lake or have a coffee and “kremšnita” (vanilla cream cake, the most famous dessert in Slovenia)

Soča river valley

The Soča river valley is an enchantingly scenic part of Slovenia and even though it is located on the other side of the Julian Alps it can be easily reached in a day trip from Ljubljana.

The Soča river has one of the most amazing colours you will ever see and you can follow its lively rapids from the source to the spectacular carved gorges, all the way down to where it slows down and becomes deeper and more secretive. The river is not the only spectacular sight in the valley since you are accompanied by eminent mountain peaks and wondrous waterfalls for most of the way. The whole area is also pervaded by memories of the battles that were fought in this valley during WWI, which can be traced in the war cemeteries and memorials.

Bovec and Soča valley adrenaline activities

The stunning mountain scenery and world-class hiking, cycling, fly-fishing and adrenaline adventures - rafting, kayak and canyoning must be part of any tour to Slovenia. As we reach the Soča river valley, the road levels out and we follow the river to Bovec, the adrenaline capital of Slovenia and the right place for an option of adrenaline activities.

The Soča valley is perfect for cycling, with beautiful scenery and excellent cycling roads.

The Soèa river is one of Europe’s top white-water destinations. The Soèa rapids grades range from I to VI. The river is the most powerful during mountain snow melts in April and May. Main water sports activities on the Soèa river include kayaking, white water rafting and hydrospeed/riverboarding; and secluded canyons around Soèa are perfect for canyoning.

Experienced guides, proper safety equipment, amazing natural surroundings and glorious water ensure an unforgettable experience.

Škocjan UNESCO caves

Visit the UNESCO-listed Škocjan caves, a major tourist attraction in Slovenia and perhaps the most beautiful cave in the world. The Škocjan Caves remain the only natural monument in Slovenia and the Classical Karst region on UNESCO’s list of natural and cultural world heritage sites. Thus, they hold a significant position among the world’s natural monuments. The exceptional volume of the underground canyon is what distinguishes the Škocjan Caves from other caves and places and is easily placed among the most famous underground features in the world.

Lipica stud farm

Visit the Lipica stud farm – home of the world renowned Lipizzaner horses, made famous by the Spanish Riding School of Vienna – and see these elegant horses in training for the performances. The Lipica Stud Farm is nowadays one of the most beautiful cultural and historical monuments in Slovenia, its rich history reaching back to the year 1580. It has been boasting the tradition of breeding and selecting pure-breed horses ever since. In the 1960’s, the Lipica Stud Farm established the Classic Riding School which still participates in worldwide equestrian events.

Lipica successfully combines the rich natural and cultural heritage of the unique karst setting with a modern tourism offer.
