The Cultural Heart of Slovenia
Nature and culture converge on this itinerary, which begins in Kranj, the birthplace of treasured Slovene national poet France Prešeren. See a performance at the theater named for the poet, explore the tunnels built beneath the city, and head down into one of Europe's deepest urban canyons, which goes right through the city. Don't forget to try the famous Kranj sausage before heading to the storybook town of Radovljica. Here take in the atmosphere of the perfectly preserved Old Town, with its mountainous backdrop and sweet culinary heritage defined by honey and gingerbread. Finish your trip in Maribor, which offers some of the country's best museums and galleries and a robust wine culture.
