Bled

— 4 nights
The most popular resort in Slovenia, Bled is marked by its iconic church steeple and medieval castle on glacial Lake Bled.
Change things up with these side-trips from Bled: Bohinjsko Jezero (Church of St John the Baptist & Lake Bohinj). Spend the 27th (Mon) exploring nature at Triglav National Park. There's still lots to do: explore the historical opulence of Bled Castle, explore the fascinating underground world of Pokljuka Gorge, kick your exploration up a notch at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks, and get great views at Ojstrica.
