1. Full-Day Ljubljana and Lake Bled Trip from Zagreb
Your full-day (11-hour) excursion begins with a pick-up at your centrally located hotel or Zrinjevac Park. Sit back and relax in an air-conditioned vehicle for the 2-hour drive to Ljubljana. En route your guide will tell you about the history of Croatia and Slovenia. You’ll hear about the hidden gems of both countries and the historical dynamics that carved them into countries they are today. Start your visit at Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, where the beauty of this small but big-hearted city will enchant you. Note the variety of architectural styles and quirky bridges with their carved dragons. Your guide will lead you on a leisurely walking tour, and tell you all the interesting bits about this Slovenian pearl. Conclude your Ljubljana experience at Ljubljana Castle, reaching the castle on a 60-second funicular ride. Take in panoramic views of the city. After the tour you’ll have free time for lunch. Continue your visit to Lake Bled at its impressive medieval castle that dates back to the 11th century. Perched atop a steep cliff rising 130 meters above the glacial lake, it is a symbol of Bled and Slovenia. Take in the mesmerizing views of the Julian Alps, the Church of the Assumption of Mary on the rocky islet and the surrounding natural beauty. Get up close to the lake and enjoy a walk to take in even more breathtaking vistas. Return to Zagreb.
