Ljubljana: Slovenia Day Tour to Bled, Postojna, and Predjama

1. Ljubljana: Slovenia Day Tour to Bled, Postojna, and Predjama

You will start your small-group tour with a pickup from your central Ljubljana hotel, and depart for Lake Bled in an air-conditioned minivan. On the 1-hour journey, you can admire rural Slovenia and listen as your guide describes the glacier-formed lake and the legends that surround Bled Island, the church-topped islet in its center. On arrival, you can drink in the views of the lake and towering mountains, and gaze up at medieval Bled Castle, the fortress perched high on a cliff above the water. Then, you will ride a two-oared pletna to the island and enjoy free time to explore, visit the Church of the Assumption of Mary or sample some scrumptious potica at the island cafe. Next, you will be driven up to Bled Castle and can delve inside the red-turreted fortress. Absorb the bird's-eye views of the lakes from the walls and visit the museum to chart the castle’s story from its roots in the 11th century. You will then return to the lakeside for free time to walk around, and if you wish, sample a local specialty, kremšnita vanilla cream cake. Then, after a break for lunch, travel onward to your next stop, Predjama Castle. You can marvel at this remarkable cliffside castle and hear how it was extended through the centuries after being built in 1202. Then, you can choose either to explore its stairways and chambers on your own, or with a guide. Lastly, you will continue to nearby Postojna Cave, Slovenia’s most-visited tourist attraction. Ride the mini-train into the depths of this subterranean network and then follow a guide through its eerie caverns. Ogle the bizarre stalactites, stalagmites, and rock formations and hear tales of how the caves were created and the rare amphibians that live in its underground rivers — the blind salamanders known as 'human fish.' Then, return to your minivan and end your tour in Ljubljana, with a drop-off at your hotel.

Postojna Cave & Predjama Castle Half-Day Tour

2. Postojna Cave & Predjama Castle Half-Day Tour

On the afternoon of your tour, you will meet your guide at your hotel in central Ljubljana. After a short meet and greet with your driver/guide you will set off in an air-conditioned minivan for Predjama Castle, located roughly 1-hour away in the historical region of Inner Carniola. As you travel, hear how the castle sits 400 feet (123 meters) above ground on a cliff. On arrival, choose to tour the fortress either with your guide or independently. Explore the chambers, linked by winding staircases, and marvel at the collection of historical artifacts, from antique armaments to old artworks and furnishings. Learn of the infamous rebel knight, Erazem of Predjama, who lived here in the 15th century, and hear about the tunnel of Erazem, the secret passage used when the castle was besieged. After around an hour, continue to Postojna Cave, roughly 15-minutes away. Part of one of the Slovenian Karst region’s many cave systems, Postojna Cave is Slovenia’s most-visited tourist attraction and the largest cave in the country. Board the mini-train and travel into the depths of the 13-mile network, and then, with one of the cave's guides, set off on foot to explore its eerie caverns. Admire the otherworldly stalactites, stalagmites and rock formations, and discover how the caves were created. Hear, too, how the cave is home to some 100 different animal species, including the blind salamanders, known as ‘human fish,’ that live in its underground rivers. Following your 1.5-hour tour, head back above ground and travel back to Ljubljana, where your tour concludes with a drop-off at your hotel.
