Discover three of Slovenia’s top attractions in one day on this scenic small-group day trip from Ljubljana. Marvel at beautiful Lake Bled and ride a traditional ‘pletna’ boat to Bled Island to explore and perhaps try scrumptious ‘potica’ nut cake. Then, explore Bled Castle perched above the lake before free time for lunch. Finally, visit cliffside Predjama Castle and ride a mini-train into Postojna Cave, the famous cave network of stalactites, stalagmites and eerie halls. Visit the main tourist sights in one day and enjoy a magnificent day exploring some of the best Slovenian attractions. On our tour we treat you with a traditional pletna boat ride to Bled island and visit the only Slovenian island. On the island you can enter the Church of the Assumption and even ring the wishing bell, which has been ringing over Lake Bled since 1534. After the pletna boat ride you will explore a thousand years old Bled castle, which is also one of the most spectacular castles in Slovenia. You visit also the castle museum, which gives you an insight into the history of the entire area. Take a few minutes to admire the amazing views of Lake Bled from several viewpoints at the castle. In the afternoon explore some underground attractions. Visit Postojna Cave, the best-known cave in the world and one of the largest Karst monuments. Start the adventure with a unique ride with a special train that will take you to discover galleries and magnificent halls full of interesting stalactites, stalagmites and the most famous cave animal human fish (proteus anguinus). A scenic road will take us to idyllic village of Predjama where we will explore one of the most interesting castles in Slovenia, The Predjama Castle. It is perched high up in a vertical cliff and it has been placed on lists of top 10 castles to see in the world. Erazem of Predjama (Erasmus) is the main protagonist of numerous legends – on the one hand these legends glorify him as a passionate, handsome and noble knight, while on the other he is described as a bandit and a robber baron who met his death on the toilet.
