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)

Postojna cave & Predjama castle

This day trip stirs your imagination with millions of years of natural history, and stories of knights and dragons. Join numerous visitors that have marvelled at the beauty of Postojna cave, an indisputable tourist highlight of Slovenia, on a 5 kilometre visit that includes an exciting underground train ride. Postojna cave is also a home to a peculiar animal of many names, a cave salamander. In Slovene, we call it 'the human fish', otherwise known as an olm or a proteus. Some like to call it a baby dragon.

We also take you to the nearby Predjama, which boasts a castle built into a rock cliff, and share the legends that surround it.

Piran

Piran is a tourist highlight of the Slovenian coast, strongly influenced by theold Venetian Republic. Walk through its narrow medieval streets wedged between beautiful houses, churches and squares and enjoy the breeze that blows from the sea.

The main square is named after Giuseppe Tartini, a famous violinist and a composer who was born in Piran. On the hill above the square you can see the signature Church of Saint George, who is also the patron saint of the town. The small town is still partially surrounded by a typically Venetian wall which used to serve as protection of this marine and salt trade hub in the Bay of Piran.

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.
