Both residents and numerous visitors perceive Ljubljana as a city made to human scale. Ljubljana is classified as a mid-sized European city, but it has preserved its small-town friendliness and relaxed atmosphere while providing all the facilities of a modern capital.
We leave Zagreb in the morning and head to the capital of Slovenia, Ljubljana. Make sure you have your passport with you! Ljubljana has preserved evidence of a five-thousand year history including, the remains of the Roman city of Emona and the old city center with its medieval castle, Baroque façades, decorative portals and uneven roofs. Another mark of the city mosaic is picturesque bridges across the Ljubljanica River.
Ljubljana's present appearance is partly due to the Italian Baroque and partly to Art Nouveau, which found expression in numerous buildings constructed after the earthquake of 1895.
In the second half of the 20th century, it was the world famous architect Jože Plečnik that put an indelible personal stamp on his native Ljubljana.
After lunch we continue to Bled. The attribute that makes Bled so special is most certainly the landscape. Beautiful glacial Lake Bled with a fairytale island and a breathtaking view from the Bled Castle situated on the steep cliff 130 meters high, is Slovenia’s most precious jewel.
There are various ways to take a trip across the lake or to the island. We recommend the traditional boat made by locals – the Pletna boat.
The Pletna boat is a wooden flat-bottom boat moved with the special technique where the oarsman is standing and rowing with two oars.
Must – taste of Bled - cream cake “Kremšnita”
