Just 2 hour’s drive from Zagreb, you can visit the amazing Lake Bled, surrounded by mountains of the Julian Alps and forests situated in a picturesque environment. With mixed glacial and tectonic origins, lake Bled maximum depth is 29,5 m / 97 ft. The lake surrounds the small island of the same name as the lake; Bled island, which has several buildings. The main one is the pilgrimage church dedicated to the Assumption of Mary, built near the end of the 17th century, decorated with remains of Gothic frescos from 1470 in the presbyterian and rich Baroque equipment. The church has a 52 m (171 ft) tower, and there is a Baroque stairway from 1655 with 99 stone steps leading up to the top of the island. The church is an interesting place to visit; well know spot for tourists. Weddings are held there very often, and it’s 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.

Ljubljana – The capital of Slovenia is a  smaller town than most of the major European cities with the population of 300 000 inhabitants, but what you can expect is a warm welcome, charming locals, fantastic gastronomic offer, large green areas and a healthy number of various events for everyone’s taste. The city is located on the river, and it gives the impression of a perfect romantic city.

Things to see while you are in Ljubljana is Dragon Bridge, one of the most beautiful creations of secessionist architecture in Europe. Copper dragons on the bridge are considered as the symbol of Ljubljana. Ljubljana Old Town is a beautiful part of town filled with nice coffee bars, restaurants, and souvenir shops. Ljubljana Castle is the cultural center of the city, located close to the city center. A must-see during your stay in Ljubljana. Experience the enchanting panoramic view of the entire city and learn more about the castle’s past! Triple Bridge made of three bridges located close to the Prešeren Square named after the most significant Slovenian poet. It is the main square, the favorite meeting place for locals, and a pedestrian zone. The most visited baroque church, Franciscan Church, is also located in the main square, and we recommend visiting it while you are wandering around. Robba Fountain (The Fountain of Three Carniolan Rivers) is the most visited beautiful fountain made of white marble. The Cathedral of St. Nicholas, churches, galleries, parks, cultural institutions, and other must-see places and enjoyable activities make Ljubljana a perfect getaway city. When you are tired of sightseeing, we recommend you to slow down while walking and enjoy surrounding the largest and most beautiful park Tivoli!
