1. Lake Bled and medieval town of Radovljica with lunch
Your excursion begins with a complimentary pick-up from your hotel or alternative meeting point when pick-up isn't possible at the hotel. During the drive in a comfortable car/minivan your guide will share information and answer to your questions regarding Slovenia. Meanwhile, you will drive about an hour through rural Slovenia towards the Julian Alps. When you arrive in Bled, you will experience a drive around the lake, and a short stroll around Lake Bled where your guide will share his/her knowledge about this beautiful place. After the sightseeing tour of the town, you will have a chance to visit the majestic castle or enjoy a ride in a traditional wooden boat, "pletna" to the island and back, or you can simply enjoy your own time here. After a short drive to Radovljica and a sightseeing tour of the city, you will see the famous Slovenian gingerbread workshop Lectar. 'Lectarstvo' is an old and renowned traditional handicraft of Slovenia. The decorated pastry is made from honey dough and shaped either with a wooden or a tin mold, or by hand. The craft is one of the oldest practiced in cities and squares, while in the countryside lect workshops appeared in the 19th century, during its heyday. Today, honey-bread products are precious souvenirs from Slovenia. Of course, a visit to the Slovenian countryside wouldn't be complete without tasting what Slovenian cuisine has to offer. You will indulge in a typical Alpine region lunch. Later, you will return to Ljubljana full of wonderful memories, where the tour ends at the meeting point.
