The visit includes a train ride to the heart of the Cave and a 5 km of wonderful subterranean world. A part of the sightseeing is done on foot, with ups and downs so be ready for a light physical activity.
After 1 hour drive, our next stop is Bled Lake. Lake Bled is a natural oasis just 55 km from the Slovenian capital Ljubljana. The Lake is 2 km long and 1.3 km wide. In the center of the Lake there is a Bled island which you can visit with a traditional boat called Pletna. At the island there is a baroque church dedicated to Assumption of Mary with 99 steps leading to its entrance. Traditionally it is considered good luck for the groom to carry his bride up the steps on the day of their wedding before ringing the bell and making a wish inside the church. If you like you can also visit the old Bled castle with a mesmerizing view of the area. One of the options is a short coffee break on the shore of the Lake with Bled cream cake tasting.
Our last destination Ljubljana is just 30 minutes away. First mentioned as Ljubljana in the 12th century, the city has a long and rich history. Located in the heart of the country, charming Ljubljana is the cultural, economic, political and administrative center of Slovenia. Several earthquakes made the city a mixture of architectural styles.

Slovenia has only one island but its uniqueness makes it more attractive than many an archipelago. Sheltered by picturesque mountains, the island reigns in the middle of an Alpine lake. Its charm has made it a symbol for centuries of a town to which guests from all over the world love to return. This town, which has already existed for a thousand years, is BLED.
On the island in the middle of the lake, the ancient Slavs worshipped Živa, goddess of love and fertility. Pilgrims later came to the church of St Mary on the island. A thousand years ago, on 10 April 1004, the town of Bled was mentioned for the first time when the Holy German emperor, Henry II, gifted it to the Bishop of Brixen. At that distant time, a Roman tower already stood at the top of the cliff rising vertically 100 m above the lake, and it still forms part of the mighty castle that now houses a museum collection. The town flourished in the Middle Ages due to pilgrims, and these were replaced in the 19th century by the first tourists. The Swiss hydropathist, Arnold Rikli, discovered that the gentle climate and the lake and thermal waters are a source of good health and well-being. The local people supplemented the health spa offer with guest houses and hotels.
The town, already famous at the beginning of the 20th century as the most beautiful health spa of the then Austrian empire, attracted the European aristocratic elite. After WWII, one of the most attractive state residences of the former regime was located in Bled. Many of the world’s most important people thus enjoyed the beauties of Bled. And now, for decades already, the pilgrims of the new age have been discovering this town.
Lake Bled simple facts:
*one of the most beautiful natural sights in Europe

*Lake Bled was considered to be the most beautiful health resort in Austria-Hungary

The most visited tourist cave in Europe is a place where the proteus or olm offspring are once again hatching. The cave railway has been operating at the cave for 140 years. The cave is connected to Predjama Castle, the largest cave castle in the world. A fantastic web of tunnels, passages, galleries and halls, the astonishing diversity of Karst features as well as easy access are certainly the main reasons for such popularity of the cave and a large number of visitors, which has already reached 38 million in 200 years. A legendary tourist train takes you to the underground network of karst tunnels, galleries, and halls. Postojna Cave is the only karst cave with a cave railway. For 140 years it has been taking visitors to see stalactites and stalagmites and other features created by water. During an hour and a half long guided tour, you learn about all of the most important karst features, you see the largest, 5-metre-high stalagmite known as Brilliant, you visit the oldest underground post office in the world and the most famous underground animal – the human fish (proteus).
