A bridge between the Mediterranean and alpine regions of Slovenia, Koper is a small town with big appeal.
On the 27th (Fri), view the masterpieces at Loza Gallery, then get into the urban bustle at Kidriceva ulica, then explore the historical opulence of Predjama Castle, and finally learn about winemaking at Lepa Vida Boutique Winery. Here are some ideas for day two: kick back and relax at Strunjan Nature Reserve, awaken your taste buds at some of the top wineries in the area, learn about winemaking at Boris Lisjak Winery, then view the masterpieces at Nika's Tiny House, and finally steep yourself in history at The Rotunda of St John the Baptist.

Sitting astride the Ljubljanica River, Ljubljana is marked with picturesque bridges and a marketplace, designed by the famous architect Jože Plečnik.
Bled Castle and Stiski Dvorec will appeal to history buffs. For shopping fun, head to Extreme Angler - Sportni ribic or The Jakopic Gallery. Venture out of the city with trips to Bled (Lake Bled & Dali) and Vintgar Gorge (in Zgornje Gorje). And it doesn't end there: visit Ljubljana Old Town, browse the different shops at Shopping Center Citypark, browse the eclectic array of goods at Ljubljana Central Market, and take in panoramic vistas at Pungert With Two Towers and the Church.
