Attend BledCom symposium and take this opportunity of visiting Slovenia to discover some of its natural and cultural treasures along with immersing in local cuisine and tasting some excellent Slovenian wine.

We have prepared 7 different tours that you can take either before or after BledCom. 4 tours cover the classic tourist highlights of Slovenia (the Alps, the Adriatic coast, Karst caves and other phenomena, Lipizzaner horse farm) and 3 tours focus on wine tasting in three different wine regions of Slovenia. All tours include traditional lunch in local restaurants, as well as guidance, transport, admission fees and wine tastings.

BledCom symposium is an annual gathering of scholars and practitioners in public relations and related disciplines to discuss contemporary communication and management problems. Each year the traditional international symposium BledCom attracts the world’s elite of academics and practitioners. The conference is organized by the Centre for Marketing and Public Relations at the University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Social Sciences.

Daytrips

Discover the best Slovenian Karst has to offer in one day trip. Visit the famous UNESCO-listed Škocjan caves with one of the largest underground canyons in the world and renowned Lipizzaner horses of the Lipica Stud Farm. Stop in the village of Lokev with its typical Karst architecture and rich heritage that goes back to the Knights Templar.

Pack in all the highlights of the Slovenian coast. Enjoy the views from Socerb castle, visit Piran, the cutest town in Slovenia and tour the historical Koper. Also get a chance to see Portorož resort and learn about the production of salt in the Seèovlje salt fields.

Visit two of the most beautiful alpine lakes and immerse yourself in the amazing mountain scenery of the Alps. See the Triglav National Park where the Bohinj valley lies, known for its scenic beauty and pristine nature. Discover one of the most popular gorges in Slovenia, the Bled Vintgar gorge following a boardwalk through this marvellous narrow valley.

Visit Postojna cave, number 1 tourist attraction in Slovenia and probably the most beautiful cave in the world. We also take you to the nearby Predjama, which boasts a castle built into a rock cliff, and share the legends that surround it. Stop in Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, and join a walking tour to see the main attraction of the city.

Bizeljsko is one of many wine regions of Slovenia, mainly famous for its sparkling wines. However, other sorts thrive in this part, which has one of the kindest climates in the country. Some of the wineries hide another ethnology gem - repnice cellars, with centuries long tradition which was revived in the last couple of decades.

A day trip to Maribor and the Styria region, where you visit the second largest Slovenian city as well as get to know the history and the winemaking traditions of the area. Maribor holds a Guinness book record for having the oldest grape vine in the world (over 400 years) and the area is dotted with vineyards - some even in the middle of the city.

The best tour of unknown Slovenia – a day trip to Goriška Brda region (Collio in Italian). Discover a unique area with its small medieval villages, hilly vineyards, and world-class wine tasting right on the border with Italy.
