Excursions

Postojna

Price: 50 EUR

Includes: round-trip ticket from Ljubljana, entrance fees to Postojna Cave and Predjama Castle, tour guide

The mesmerizing beauty of the Postojna Caves and the mysterious castle of Predjama rank among the most precious jewels of Slovenia. We will explore the wonderful underground world and excite our imagination in a striking medieval castle.

It has taken millions of years for the clear waters of the River Pivka to create these 21 km of underground labyrinth of passages, caverns and great halls, decorated with dripstones, translucent curtains and pillars of fascinating shapes and colours. After an unforgettable underground train ride to the heart of the cave system, experienced guides will accompany you on a walk through the subtly lit fairytale-like underground world. You will glimpse a million years in one moment, admiring delicate spaghetti-like stalactites, massive pillars and other geological wonders. Back in the daylight, the castle of the robber knight Erasmus is for centuries dramatically hanging in over a 100-meter-high vertical cliff, waiting for you to enter and discover its secrets, legends and myths.

Bled

Price: 45 EUR

Includes: round-trip ticket from Ljubljana, entrance fee to Bled Castle, "kremšnita" (famous dessert from Bled)

The Alpine resort town of Bled will enchant you with its emerald-green lake, fairytale-like island and imposing castle reigning on top of a rocky cliff. This harmonious mix of beautiful nature, rich history and genuine hospitality has been attracting visitors for centuries. After an enjoyable drive, we board a traditional ‘pletna’ boat and smoothly glide over the lake to visit the only Slovenian island. Its top is crowned with a little church, and you will have an opportunity to ring the mysterious wishing bell. A scenic road takes us around the lake and to the medieval castle perched high on a cliff. Built over a thousand years ago, it was once an unconquerable property of the Bishops of Brixen. Today, it attracts visitors with its museum, and demonstrations of old crafts and traditions, not to mention the breathtaking view of the surroundings.
