Ljubljana

Sitting astride the Ljubljanica River, Ljubljana is marked with picturesque bridges and a marketplace, designed by the famous architect Jože Plečnik.

Venture out of the city with trips to Kranj (Khislstein Castle & Prešeren Grove), Ptuj Castle (in Ptuj) and Maribor (Escape Room Enigmarium Maribor, Three Ponds, &more). And it doesn't end there: pause for some serene contemplation at Hrastovlje Church of the Holy Trinity, steep yourself in history at Old Town Centre of Radovljica, explore the ancient world of City Museum of Ljubljana, and browse the exhibits of Gewerkenegg Castle.
