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 Logar Valley Landscape Park, Planica Nordic Centre & Zipline, Lake Jasna, and other attractions to your itinerary. Discover out-of-the-way places like Old Town Centre of Radovljica and Zelenci Nature Reserve. Visit Bled Castle and St. Martin's Parish Church for their historical value. Change things up with these side-trips from Bled: Planica Valley (in Rateče), Kranjska Gora (Ajdovska Deklica, Zgornjesavska Valley, &more) and Kapela Kristusa Kralja (in Solčava). There's lots more to do: trek along Vintgar Gorge, take in the views from Capuchin Bridge, stroll through Mount Blegoš, and whizz through the canopy at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks.

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.
