Ljubljana where Jason killed the drake. Visit Bled and its lake that contains Slovenia’s only island, in front of the Triglav national park.

The Postojna cave is one of the world's most captivating caves with magnificent cave formations and diverse fauna. In 90 minutes you will enjoy a 2 km ride on the underground train and a subterranean paradise shaped by tiny droplets over millions of years. No steps, but 1,5 km to walk. The world’s first railway in an underground cave was opened here in 1872. Meet the ‘baby dragons’! In the cave is living the olms, with no eyes, with a pale almost translucent skin, four limbs and only ten digits. They can live up to 12 years without food and have a lifespan of up to 100 years. Even Charles Darwin wrote about them in his On the Origin of Species, in 1859.

Ljubljana is the young capital of Slovenia. The origin of the name is believed to mean "the one of a lovely appearance".   The symbol of the city is the Ljubljana Dragon, depicted on the top of the tower of Ljubljana Castle, in the Ljubljana coat of arms and on the Ljubljanica River crossing Dragon Bridge. It symbolises power, courage and greatness. The guide will tell you about the origin of the dragon. According to a Greek legend, it was in the Ljubljana area that Jason struck down the monster dragon. Today’s Ljubljana is known for its university population and green spaces. The curving river, lined in outdoor cafes, divides the city’s old town from its commercial hub.

From the Castle Hill, there is a nice view of the old town and the river. 

Bled is close to the national park of Triglav and it's lake is considered one of the most spectacular landmarks of Slovenia. In the second half of the 19th century, Bled became a health resort, under the initiative of the Swiss naturopath Arnold Rikli. Due to its mild climate, Bled has been visited by aristocratic guests from all across the world. It is a starting point for mountain treks and hikes. A small island in the middle of the Bled lake is home to the Assumption of  Mary Pilgrimage Church. In fact, it is Slovenia’s only island. There are 99 steps up to the church. A local tradition at weddings is for the husband to carry his bride up these steps, during which the bride must remain silent. In Slovenia, Bled is also known for its vanilla and cream pastry, the kremna rezina

Slovenia is famous for its honey. We will visit the honey museum in the lovely village of Radovljica close to Bled.
