Ljubljana

— 4 nights
Sitting astride the Ljubljanica River, Ljubljana is marked with picturesque bridges and a marketplace, designed by the famous architect Jože Plečnik.
Attractions like Ljubljana Old Town and Triple Bridge make great kid-friendly stops. Get out of town with these interesting Ljubljana side-trips: Bled (Parasailing & Paragliding, Bled Castle, &more), Škocjan Caves (in Škocjan) and Predjama Castle (in Postojna). There's lots more to do: step into the grandiose world of Ljubljana Castle, explore the activities along Ljubljanica River, look for gifts at Trgovina IKA, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Cathedral of St. Nicholas.

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.
