This twin centre tailor-made holiday allows you to explore beautiful Lake Bled and cultural Ljubljana at your own pace. Make the short journey between the two by private car and enjoy plenty of free time to explore the highlights of Slovenia at leisure. Renowned for its stunning natural beauty, hot springs and superb climate, Bled is located on the edge of a former volcanic lake in the shadow of a wonderful medieval castle. Situated high up on the bluff, the fairytale castle houses a museum detailing the area’s history and provides unparalleled views of the lake and surrounding mountains. In the western part of the lake lies Bled Island, site of a Christian church since the 9th century. Crowning the island is the striking baroque style Church of the Assumption, a popular location for weddings where it is considered good luck for the groom to carry his bride up the 99 steps before ringing the bell and making a wish.
Fly to Slovenia’s capital and transfer to Lake Bled for three nights (approx 30 min drive). Opt to stay in either the 4-star Hotel Lovec or the 5-star Grand Hotel Toplice, both with the option to upgrade to a lake view room.
Return to Ljubljana by private car (approx 40 min drive) and check in to the hotel for three nights. Choose to stay in either the 3-star City Hotel or the 4-star Grand Hotel Union, both centrally located with the highlights of Slovenia’s capital on the doorstep. (B)
Hotel upgrade to 4&5-star option: £1050 Single room supplement £315
I regard the fact that your office team at Bristol are so well informed as very important.
Although we travel extensively through Germany and Austria this was our first visit to Slovenia, hence asking Regent Holidays to make arrangements for us. We thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to Slovenia, which is a beautiful country and wonderful holiday destination – we plan to return. Many thanks – no hesitation in recommending Regent Holidays for a holiday of this type.
