Bohinj

About the city

Many visitors to Slovenia say they’ve never seen a more beautiful lake than Bled…that is, until they’ve seen Lake Bohinj, just 26km to the southwest. We’ll refrain from weighing in on the Bled versus Bohinj debate other than to say we see their point. Admittedly, Bohinj lacks Bled’s glamour, but it’s less crowded and in many ways more authentic. It’s an ideal summer holiday destination. People come primarily to chill out or to swim in the crystal-clear, blue-green water, with leisurely cycling and walking trails to occupy them. There are lots of outdoor pursuits like kayaking, hiking and horseback riding if you’ve got the energy, and the charming villages to the lake’s northeast, remarkably, have remained faithful to traditional occupations like dairy herding and farming.

Bled

About the city

The most recognizable symbol of the lake is the Church of the Assumption with its long and diverse history, however the lush greenery also hides other interesting island buildings, like the bell-tower, church, chaplain's house, provost's house, small hermitage and some mysterious legends. The most renowned symbol of the island is the Church of the Assumption which demands a climb up the 99 stone-step staircase. In case you visit the island in just the right time, make time to witness a wedding in the romantic environment. As far as the wishing bell is concerned. Don't just watch it. Ring it.

Ljubljana

About the city

At first glance, Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, seems almost too good to be true. Tucked up against the town’s e-topped hill, the baroque and folk-painted buildings of the old town are like something out of a fairytale. In fact, Ljubljana is very much a part of the real world; industry and the arts flourish here, and commerce is booming lively, lovely, and oh-so-easy for the foreign visitor, modern, sophisticated Ljubljana may well be one of the most pleasant city in Europe. Ljubljana has plenty of places to visit whether they be the city's castle which offers great views over the area from its hill top position, the fine museums and art galleries or taking in the local culture with good local food and drinks, especially beer. The hill with Ljubljana castle is situated in the city centre and narrow river Ljubljanica is slowly circulating around it. The old city centre is situated below this hill on the banks of Ljubljanica River. The focus of the city is Preseren square with its 3 bridges, Tromostovje. From there walk down Stritarjeva street to reach old Ljubljana and Ljubljana castle. Stroll down Copova street to reach Tivoli Park, a gorgeous park, famous for its boulevards, its flower garden and lake. Inside the park we have the International Centre of Graphic Arts. But to really enjoy Ljubljana walk along the Ljubljanica river banks in the evening, listen to the street music, sit in one of the numerous restaurants and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere.

Taste Ljubljana Culinary Tour

day 4 - Taste Ljubljana Culinary Tour
Meet your guide in central Ljubljana at midday — just as you start to feel hungry.  Set off into the city to begin your culinary walking tour. Ljubljana is a city where the old and the new collide, and the cuisine is a reflection of that. Many popular dishes can be traced far back into the city’s history, while others are the result of modern-day culinary creativity.
During your tour, visit five restaurants and taste a different dish at each stop — all accompanied by a beverage. Along the way, gain insight into the diverse ingredients at play and learn of their origins in Slovenian cuisine.
Explore the Central Market, where busy buyers and sellers trade in fresh produce, then head on to Krakovo — an area of gardens and parkland traditionally occupied by the local vegetable-growers.
See historic sites around the city center where food trading took place during centuries passed, and take a trip to the top of Nebotičnik — once the tallest building in Central Europe — for fine views over Ljubljana.
After three hours of exploring Ljubljana and tasting the delicacies on offer, your tour will come to an end near the city center.
