Sitting astride the Ljubljanica River, Ljubljana is marked with picturesque bridges and a marketplace, designed by the famous architect Jože Plečnik.
Get outdoors at Vintgar Gorge and Bled Island. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Ljubljana Castle and Sts. Cyril and Methodius Orthodox Church. Change things up with these side-trips from Ljubljana: Kranjska Gora (Zelenci Nature Reserve, Vršič Pass, &more), Bled (St. Martin's Parish Church & Bled Castle) and Velenje Beach (in Velenje). There's much more to do: wander the streets of Ljubljana Old Town, stroll around Tivoli Park, head outdoors with Outdoor Activities, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Cathedral of St. Nicholas.
