BLED & POSTOJNA - SLOVENIAN PEARLSExplore Slovenia's most known sights and see it for yourself if the legends are true!
Bled & Postojna – the two Slovenia’s most known tourist spots. First one is a famousAlpine lake with its island, church and a castle, the other is probablythe best known underground cavein the world. What is there to add?
Lake Bled is of course most famous of them all. Slovenia’s pride, “a must” for every tourist. But what is it that truly attracts people? Lake itself with surrounding Alpine scenery? Island on the lake with the gothic church? Or is it the castle, high above the lake, controlling the valley like and old bodyguard? Everybody should discover it by themselves what makes their heart beat faster in a place like this and why it is so special.
We will take a “pletna” ride to the island. It’s a traditional boat, made by locals, operated by a single rower with two long oars. Don’t worry, you will not row and we will not leave you on the island. But we do want you to have this experience. So relax and enjoy and let us handle everything.
Later we will take some time for a coffee or traditional local cream cake, or just have a short walk by the lake’s coast. And of course, we will visit the castle – for the views and the museum inside.
After all this we will have to take some time for a lunch (optional). What about something local? Yes? Nice. No? No problem, we will try our best to find something, that will suit you.
Postojna Cave is one of the largest and most recognizable karst caves in Slovenia and the most visited cave in Europe. Can you imagine? Each year it is visited by more than 500.000 people from all over the world who find it the most spectacular tourist site in Europe.
The cave is entwined with more than 20 kilometres of tunnels, passages, galleries and magnificent halls. After a ride with a special cave train (yes, a train inside a cave) we will walk through different cave corridors, tunnels and halls which are adorned by stalactites and stalagmites of fantastic forms.
Did you know that Postojna Cave is also a home to a mysterious, unique and rare amphibian - Proteus anguinus, also called the human fish or the olm.
Only 9 kilometres away stands one of the most interesting castles in Slovenia - Predjama Castle. This picturesque, magnificent, defiant, mysterious and impregnable castle has been perched up in the middle of a vertical 123-metre high cliff for more than 700 years. Its romantic appeal is further emphasized by the idyllic River Lokva, which disappears into the underground below the castle. And have you heard about the Game of Thrones? Of course you did. Its author visited this castle, listened to its stories and said he may put it in The story of ice and fire. Will he really? Will see…
