Piran

— 4 nights
Considered one of the prettiest cities on the country's coast, Piran owes much of its development to salt.
Venture out of the city with trips to Škocjan Caves (in Škocjan), Hrastovlje Church of the Holy Trinity (in Hrastovlje) and Postojna (Guštarna, Postojna Cave, &more). There's still lots to do: make a trip to Tartini Square, learn more about the world around you at Magical World of Shells Museum, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Koper Cathedral and Bell Tower, and take a leisurely stroll along Port Piran.

To see photos, traveler tips, where to stay, and tourist information, refer to the Piran vacation planner.

Traveling by car from Bled to Piran takes 2 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus; or do a combination of train and bus. Plan for somewhat warmer temperatures traveling from Bled in October, with highs in Piran at 22°C and lows at 12°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 28th (Thu) early enough to go by car back home.
