Bled, Slovenia

— 5 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 Mala Osojnica. Step off the beaten path and head to Ojstrica and Museum of Apiculture. Venture out of the city with trips to Kranjska Gora (The Russian Chapel & Tromeja -Triple border), Peričnik Falls (in Mojstrana) and Planica Nordic Centre & Zipline (in Rateče). There's still lots to do: hike along Vintgar Gorge, take in the spiritual surroundings of Church of the Sorrowful Mother of God, take in the dramatic scenery at Martuljek Waterfalls, and explore the historical opulence of Bled Castle.
