    Description

    A small independent republic, Slovenia and the Lake Bled region is an unspoilt gem. Perched on the edge of the Julian Alps, close to the Triglav National Park lies the town of Bled, best known for its glacial lake. In the lake’s centre is an island where for generations pilgrims have crossed its waters to ring the bell in the idyllic 15th-century church.


    During your stay you will visit Ljubljana, with its three bridges and its Christmas markets in Preseren Square. Admire the stunning natural beauty of the Postojna caves, easily reached by a thrilling train ride and a cable car ride above Lake Bohinj. You will be able to admire the majesty of the Julian Alps as you travel over the pass into Austria, as well as a scenic horse and carriage ride and a boat ride to the island church in Lake Bled.
