Ljubljana

Sitting astride the Ljubljanica River, Ljubljana is marked with picturesque bridges and a marketplace, designed by the famous architect Jože Plečnik.
Popular historic sites such as Franciscan Church of the Annunciation and Cathedral of St. Nicholas are in your itinerary. Step out of the city life by going to Triglav National Park and Nature & Wildlife Tours. Explore Ljubljana's surroundings by going to Kamnik (Lectar House, Church of Immaculate Conception, &more), Bled (Mala Osojnica, St. Martin's Parish Church, &more) and Žirovnica (Church of St. Martin, Cerkev sv. Radegunde na Bregu, &more). Dedicate the 22nd (Thu) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. And it doesn't end there: appreciate the extensive heritage of Cankarjevo Nabrežje, steep yourself in history at Old Town Centre of Radovljica, glide through the air with a parasailing or paragliding tour, and indulge your thirst for a good beer at Union Experience.

Experience quintessential Slovenia, nestled between snow-capped peaks and lush meadows, in Upper Carniola Region, one of country's most picturesque areas. In the shadow of Triglav Mountain, the national symbol of Slovenia, you'll find a landscape dotted with rolling hills, thick forests, cascading waterfalls, and crystal-clear Alpine lakes. Throughout the year, Upper Carniola (known locally as Gorenjska), serves as a haven for lovers of the great outdoors. In the wintertime, it offers some of the country's best skiing and snowboarding, while during the warmer months it's a prime destination for hiking, fishing, cycling, or horseback riding. Things to do include visiting historical sights, such as castles and churches, traditional farms, and taverns and restaurants that offer local specialties in an authentic Alpine atmosphere. Take a tour of the region's cities, immerse yourself in the local culture, or try to make a fortune at one of the casinos.
