Bled — 6 nights

The most popular resort in Slovenia, Bled is marked by its iconic church steeple and medieval castle on glacial Lake Bled.
You've added Planica Nordic Centre & Zipline, Lake Jasna, Jelovica Plateau, and other attractions to your itinerary. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Old Town Centre of Radovljica and St. Martin's Parish Church. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Bled Castle and Žigon's House. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Bled: Planica Valley (in Rateče), Kranjska Gora (Ajdovska Deklica, Zgornjesavska Valley, &more) and Kapela Kristusa Kralja (in Solčava). There's lots more to do: step into the grandiose world of Škofja Loka Castle, take in the views from Capuchin Bridge, take in the dramatic natural features at Vintgar Gorge, and admire the sheer force of Slap Grmečica.

For reviews, more things to do, where to stay, and tourist information, you can read our Bled trip itinerary planning site.

Portorož — 6 nights

A resort town on the country's scenic Adriatic coastline, Portoroz offers many spas with all kinds of therapeutic treatments, many based on the brine and mud from the area's salt pans.

Change things up with these side-trips from Portorož: Štanjel Castle (in Štanjel), Šmartno (in Kojsko) and Magma X (in Nova Gorica). The adventure continues: stroll through Svetilnik Beach, admire the landmark architecture of Piazza Tito, learn more about the world around you at Magical World of Shells Museum, and admire the local landmark of Da Ponte Fountain.
