Get to know Slovenia in a day with a morning departure from Zagreb.- pickup at the place of your accommodation at 8.30 am
Two hour drive towards Lake Bled. It is the famous lake that holds the only island in the country. The emerald-green lake, a picture-postcard church on the island, a medieval Bled castle clinging to a rocky cliff and some of the highest peaks of the Julian Alps make the town Bled simply a postcard perfect. Then take a walk along the lakeside promenade enjoying the scenic fairy tale of reality. There is even a legend saying that it was the fairies who summoned all the waters from the surrounding mountains to flood the valley and this is how the lake and the island came to be.
Afterwards drive up to the town Bled in order to visit the Museum at Bled Castle - the oldest castle in Slovenia that rises up to 130 meters above the glacial Lake Bled. Following the tour of the castle, stop for Bled's famous Cremeschnitte, a cake made according to the original recipe since 1953. After the sweet refreshment you will be heading towards Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia whose charm lays in millenniums of architectural history, its picturesque bridges across the river Ljubljanica and its vast Tivoli park stretching into the very city center. Ljubljana has preserved evidence of all the five millennia of its history, including the remains of the Roman city of Emona and the old city center with its medieval castle and beautiful Baroque faades.
After Ljubljana city tour you are heading back to Zagreb and expected to arrive around 5.30 pm.
