Top 4 Architectural Sights

  • Triple Bridge
  • Maribor Castle
  • Tunnels under Kranj Old Town
  • Koper

The Triple Bridge in Ljubljana is perhaps the most used and most unusual bridge in the city. Connecting the Old Town with the market, the central bridge dates from 1842. In 1932 it was decided to increase the capacity of the bridge and this was achieved by adding a pedestrianized bridge to either side of the main bridge. Maribor Castle is housed in a stunning baroque mansion in the northeastern town of Maribor. It holds an impressive collection of regional exhibits. The tunnels under Kranj Old Town were built to shelter local residents from bombing during World War II. This extensive network runs for miles under the city and there are guided tours to help you understand and navigate the network. Koper is Slovenia's largest coastal town. This busy port on the Adriatic Sea has a delightful medieval town center, with pretty red-tiled roofs. There are plenty of winding alleys to explore and hidden squares to discover and the lively seaside resort of Ankaran is just across the bay.

Top 4 Natural Sights

  • Lake Bled
  • Triglav National Park
  • Skocjan Caves
  • Volčji Potok Arboretum

Lake Bled is a picture-perfect Alpine lake in the Julian Alps. Its emerald-green water, church on an island and medieval castle perched on a cliff have helped to make it the most popular tourist area in Slovenia. Triglav National Park is one of the largest national parks in Europe and is a spectacular area of mountains, lakes, forests, ravines, canyons and caves. It is also home to Mt. Triglav, the highest peak in Slovenia. The Skocjan Caves have been recognized by UNESCO as some of the most significant in the world. Extending for more than six miles, they have carved out a fascinating and beautiful underground world. Volčji Potok Arboretum is the most visited botanic gardends of Slovenia and the estate where it is found has been declared an official place of cultural and natural heritage of national importance. It is known for its woody plants and spring flower shows.
