Enjoy a guided tour around the capital city. You will find out why Ljubljana is the city of dragons, a city of bridges and, slightly unfairly, called the small Prague. Attractive cities are often described as ‘jewel boxes’, but here the name really fits. A complete city in a nutshell. Big on history, entertainment and charm, small in size and distances. The guided tour will take you to the baroque old town, Prešeren Square, Congress Square, the City Hall, the Cathedral, the Butchers’ Bridge, the Dragon Bridge, and the open market, very popular with the locals.
Continue to lake Bled or to the Postojna caves, the famous karst cave, one of the largest in the world, among Slovenia’s most popular attractions and its stalagmite and stalactite formations are unequalled anywhere. There are more than ten thousand caves in the Slovenian Karst landscape. People say that Dante found his inspiration for the Purgatory in his Divine Comedy right here in the Slovenian Karst. Postojna Cave can boast with more than 35 million visitors, which is outstanding for a country as small as Slovenia.
Return to Zagreb in the late afternoon.
