Venture out of the city with trips to Postojna (Postojna Cave & Predjama Castle), Vintgar Gorge (in Zgornje Gorje) and Bled (Ojstrica, Bled Island, &more). And it doesn't end there: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Franciscan Church of the Annunciation, contemplate the waterfront views at Ljubljanica River, snap pictures at Dragon Bridge, and get a sense of history and politics at Town Hall.
