Venture out of the city with trips to Ptuj Castle (in Ptuj), Maribor (Escape Room Enigmarium Maribor, Piramida (Pyramid Hill), &more) and Lake Jasna (in Kranjska Gora). And it doesn't end there: steep yourself in history at Anthony's Shaft Mining Museum, admire the masterpieces at National Gallery, examine the collection at National Museum of Contemporary History, and pause for some serene contemplation at Koper Cathedral and Bell Tower.
