Bled

— 8 nights
The most popular resort in Slovenia, Bled is marked by its iconic church steeple and medieval castle on glacial Lake Bled.
Step out of the city life by going to Triglav National Park and Parasailing & Paragliding. Your inner history buff will appreciate Old Town Centre of Radovljica and Bled Castle. Venture out of the city with trips to Bovec (Soča Valley, Boka Waterfall, &more), Kozjak Waterfall (in Kobarid) and Outdoor Museum Kolovrat (muzej na prostem) (in Volče). There's much more to do: whizz through the canopy at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks, take in the dramatic scenery at Mostnica Gorge, identify plant and animal life at Vršič Pass, and stroll through Mala Osojnica.
