Leave the crowds behind and see Slovenia like a local with this exclusive tour of Lake Bled and Ljubljana. A professional guide will treat you to a private exploration of Slovenia's beautiful landmarks and natural settings. Stunning glacial lakes, picturesque architecture, and sights loaded with cultural significance await your arrival on this private Koper tour.
Your private tour guide and driver will escort you and your guests from the cruise terminal to Lake Bled, a famous glacial lake in the Julian Alps, home to the 2011 World Rowing Championships. Walk along the shoreline then head to Bled Castle, a centuries-old building perched on the cliffs. From here, enjoy and photograph magnificent views of the lake and surrounding hillsides. During your free time, those interested can take a Pletna boat to lovely island in the middle of the lake and view the Assumption of Mary Church with its gothic frescoes and baroque stone stairway. You can also stay on shore for some shopping, or simply relax with a cup of coffee in one of the many cafes.
Travel to Ljubljana, the economic, political, cultural, and educational hub of Slovenia. Note the city's eclectic mix of architecture, including Roman, Baroque, and Vienna Secession style influences on prominent buildings like the Town Hall and Franciscan Church of the Annunciation. See Robba Fountain, an obelisk monument created by prominent designer Francesco Robba. This stunning structure is composed of three white marble figures symbolizing the three main rivers of Carniola.
Survey the Triple Bridge, a group of bridges connecting two parts of the downtown area. The center stone-arch bridge dates back to 1842 and is flanked by two pedestrian bridges erected almost 100 years later. Make a stop at Ljubljana Castle, a medieval fortress that dominates the city center and continues the tradition of firing cannons to announce dignitaries or significant events. Continue to explore the city on your own or browse the shops for that special memento before your drive back to Koper.

This excursion was one of the highlights of our 27-day trip abroad. Our guide was knowledgeable and attentive and always conscious that we be able to see as much as we could, while ascertaining that we make it back to our trip on time. Lake Bled is stunningly beautiful and Ljubljana is a lovely town.
