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 Škofja Loka Castle. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Bled: Kapela Kristusa Kralja (in Solčava), Kranjska Gora (Ajdovska Deklica, Zgornjesavska Valley, &more) and Planica Valley (in Rateče). There's lots more to do: glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, hike along The Three Castles Path, admire the sheer force of Slap Grmečica, and whizz through the canopy at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks.

Take the guesswork out of planning a Bled vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

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.
Take a break from the city and head to Škocjan Caves and Scuba & Snorkeling. Get some historical perspective at Church of St. Maurus and Church of St. Francis of Assisi. Change things up with these side-trips from Portorož: Štanjel Castle (in Štanjel), Šmartno (in Kojsko) and Magma X (in Nova Gorica). There's still lots to do: stroll around Strunjan Nature Reserve, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Marija Snežne Church, enjoy the sand and surf at Svetilnik Beach, and see the interesting displays at Magical World of Shells Museum.

For maps, more things to do, where to stay, and other tourist information, go to the Portorož road trip site.
