Bled

— 2 nights
The most popular resort in Slovenia, Bled is marked by its iconic church steeple and medieval castle on glacial Lake Bled.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Outdoor Museum Kolovrat (muzej na prostem) and Galerija Mikame. Escape the urban bustle at Soča Valley and Iglica Waterfall. Step out of Bled with an excursion to Wild Lake in Idrija--about 1h 10 min away. And it doesn't end there: glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mežakla Plateau, Head underground at Pokljuka Gorge, and take some stellar pictures from Ojstrica.

Considered one of the prettiest cities on the country's coast, Piran owes much of its development to salt.
Explore hidden gems such as Magical World of Shells Museum and Hrastovlje Church of the Holy Trinity. Your inner history buff will appreciate Štanjel Castle and Marija Snežne Church.

There's lots more to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Strunjan Nature Reserve, awaken your taste buds at some of the top wineries in the area, see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, and take an in-depth tour of Snežnik Castle.
