Ljubljana

— 3 nights
Sitting astride the Ljubljanica River, Ljubljana is marked with picturesque bridges and a marketplace, designed by the famous architect Jože Plečnik.
Get a sense of the local culture at Ljubljana Old Town and National Museum of Contemporary History. Step out of the city life by going to Postojna Cave and Nature & Wildlife Tours. Change things up with a short trip to Predjama Castle in Postojna (about 1 hour away). The adventure continues: find your balance on the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, admire the masterpieces at National Gallery, appreciate the extensive heritage of Cankarjevo Nabrežje, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Cathedral of St. Nicholas.
