Sitting astride the Ljubljanica River, Ljubljana is marked with picturesque bridges and a marketplace, designed by the famous architect Jože Plečnik.
Escape the urban bustle at Postojna Cave and Stand-Up Paddleboarding. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Ljubljana Castle and Predjama Castle. Take a break from Ljubljana with a short trip to Rakov Škocjan Landscape Park in Rakek, about 54 minutes away. Spend the 3rd (Thu) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's much more to do: stop by Ljubljana Old Town, take in the spiritual surroundings of Cathedral of St. Nicholas, take in the views from Dragon Bridge, and contemplate the waterfront views at Ljubljanica River.
