This morning meet your guide and driver for a full day exploration of Bled and Ljubljana – the highlights of Slovenia. Sheltered by picturesque mountains, lies the romantic town of Bled. Take pleasure in the pletna boat ride and discover the dreamy islet that reigns in the middle of the lake. For centuries now, its charm has made it a symbol of the town of Bled, mentioned for the first time a thousand years ago. That is where the ancient Slavs worshipped Živa, goddess of love and fertility. Your guide will take you for a walk around the islet where you will visit the baroque Church of the Assumption. Ring its legendary bell and your wishes will come true! Then you will visit the beautiful Bled Castle, which the oldest castle in the country. Perched atop a steep cliff, the castle is the premier attraction of this area and today you will get a chance to explore its rich cultural legacy. Enjoy the spectacular view over the lake and the mountains before you guide and driver take you to Ljubljana. Ljubljana is known to be one of the most charming European capitals, whose name means „the beloved“. Feel its young and friendly pulse while wandering the cobblestone streets with buzzing cafes, restaurants and galleries. The city is crowned by a mediaeval castle, protected by a mighty dragon and crossed by the river of seven names. You will explore the city center with your guide, starting from the Baroque Town Hall, the Town Square with the famous Fountain of the Tree Rivers and the funicular ride to the top of Castle Hill. The Ljubljana Castle offers spectacular views over the city and the surrounding countryside. Back in the Old Town, you will continue across the Dragon Bridge - an Art Nouveau masterpiece adorned with dragons and the symbol of Ljubljana, and stroll alongside the Ljubljanica River to the centrally located and bustling Preseren Square. After some time on your own, your guide and driver will take you back to your hotel.
