Ljubljana

— 6 nights
Sitting astride the Ljubljanica River, Ljubljana is marked with picturesque bridges and a marketplace, designed by the famous architect Jože Plečnik.
Get outdoors at Nature & Wildlife Tours and Peričnik Falls. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Velika Planina and Stand-Up Paddleboarding. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Ljubljana: Cross Cave (in Grahovo), Natural Bathing Place Lajšt (in Spodnja Idrija) and Postojna Cave (in Postojna). Dedicate the 9th (Sat) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's still lots to do: wander the streets of Ljubljana Old Town, explore the activities along Ljubljanica River, walk around Tivoli Park, and snap pictures at Triple Bridge.

Sunny Side of the Alps
From snowcapped Alpine peaks to sandy Adriatic beaches, a trip to Slovenia is like taking several vacations at once. Whatever the season, the country offers enticing natural attractions, all close at hand, including thick forests, scenic valleys, cave systems, waterfalls, lakes, and the Adriatic coast. For those seeking an active holiday, you'll fine an abundance of ski slopes, trails to hike, roads to bike, and rocks to climb. Pay a visit to some of Slovenia's spa resorts and take advantage of the fresh mountain air and thermal waters. Various castles, churches, and historical towns--many of which are fully preserved--tell stories of the country's past. In Slovenia's major cities, admire the architecture, explore the local arts, visit museums, and chat with the locals over a cup of coffee. Slovenian cuisine offers a blend of Alpine and Mediterranean tastes and is definitely worth trying, along with the country's wines.
