Ljubljana — 3 nights

Sitting astride the Ljubljanica River, Ljubljana is marked with picturesque bridges and a marketplace, designed by the famous architect Jože Plečnik.
Visiting Nature & Wildlife Tours and Parasailing & Paragliding will get you outdoors. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Portorož Beach and Ljubljanica River. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Ljubljana: Magical World of Shells Museum (in Piran) and Postojna Cave (in Postojna). There's much more to do: don't miss a visit to Ljubljana Castle, take in the spiritual surroundings of Franciscan Church of the Annunciation, and snap pictures at Cobblers' Bridge.

To find where to stay, other places to visit, and tourist information, refer to the Ljubljana road trip tool.
