Spend a fascinating day exploring the Slovenian cities of Ljubljana and Bled.
This tour includes:
• Round trip transportation from the cruise ship pier or your hotel
• English-speaking guide
• Tour of Slovenia's capital, Ljubljana
• Visit to the resort town of Bled
Take a trip to Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, where old meets new. This central European city lying between the Alps and the Adriatic Sea has succeeded in preserving evidence of all the periods of its rich history: the remains of the Roman city of Emona; the city centre with Renaissance, Baroque, and Art Nouveau façades, lopsided roofs, ornate entrance portals, and romantic bridges over the Ljubljanica river; a park stretching into the very city centre; and works by Jože Pleènik, a pioneer of modern architecture.
You'll discover Old Town with its bridges, churches, palaces, and sidewalk cafes. The open-air market around the St. Nicholas Cathedral is just like the city itself, colourful and full of life. Old Town's five squares blend into each other to form one long shopping street filled with outlets offering the finest items from Slovenia, including unique handmade crystalware, lace, culinary creations, and one-of-a-kind clothing.
A short drive from Ljubljana is the resort town of Bled, often mentioned as the pearl of the Alpine region due to its emerald-green lake with an enchanting island in the middle and a medieval castle from the 11th century perched on top of a cliff overlooking the lake.
With immense natural features, Bled ranks among the most beautiful Alpine resorts, renowned for its mild, healing climate and thermal lake water. Bled attracts business people, artists, athletes, explorers, sport enthusiasts, the old and the young, from all over the world, enchanting them to return again and again.
