Bled

— 3 nights
The most popular resort in Slovenia, Bled is marked by its iconic church steeple and medieval castle on glacial Lake Bled.
Get some cultural insight at St. Martin's Parish Church and Old Town Centre of Radovljica. Escape the urban bustle at Mostnica Gorge and Lake Bohinj. Change things up with these side-trips from Bled: Kranjska Gora (Lake Jasna & Vršič Pass) and Vogel (in Bohinjsko Jezero). The adventure continues: fly like a bird with a parasailing or paragliding tour, stroll through Straža Bled, and whizz through the canopy at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks.

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.
