"Discover the very best of Slovenia, taking in the sights of its lively capital, visiting the stunning Postojna Cave and Predjama Castle, traversing vineyards with picturesque landscapes, admiring the emerald green river of Soca Valley, and touring the fairytale town of Bled.
Soca Valley is a lush paradise situated in the Julian Alps. Its mesmerizing emerald river flows through the Triglav National Park, crossing over waterfalls and stunning wild gorges that form pools of glistening green water. Here, travellers can embark on various river activities, including kayaking, rafting, fishing and paddle boarding. The mountains that form part of the valley also offer hiking, cycling trails and, for the more adventurous, the largest zip line park in Europe.
Bled Castle, Lake Bled
This medieval castle is perched high on the cliffs in the city of Bled, treating travellers to stunning panoramic views of the lake and the surrounding mountains in the Julian Alps. Dating back to the 11th century, It contains a chapel painted with frescoes, blacksmiths forge, drawbridge, moat and two courtyards. The Romanesque tower is its oldest work of architecture, with Renaissance additions being built in subsequent years. The castle also has a museum and restaurant on site for tourists.
The Postojna caves
Located in southwestern Slovenia, this breathtaking site stretches over 24 kilometres underground and is home to Slovenia's very own ""dragons"", the proteus. The diverse system of caves is an incredible underworld sprawling with natural wonders that took millions of years to create. Predjama Castle, a monument of Renaissance architecture, sits on the cliff face a mere 9km away. At the end of winter, when the bats emerge from hibernation, travellers are able to explore the cave underneath the building.
