City and Lakes: Ljubljana & Lake Bled

7 Day Tour, from £1075 per person

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.

Ljubljana takes the architectural influences of some of Europe’s most beautiful capitals and brings them all together in one easily explorable city. The imposing castle, first fortified by the Celts and the Illyrians, dominates the skyline while the Art Nouveau buildings on the left bank are evidence of the city’s regeneration following the devastating earthquake of 1895. Visit the City Market - one of Plecnik’s iconic architectural legacies from the inter-war years - for a taste of local life, or book tickets to a world-class ballet or opera performance at the SNG. The journey between Ljubljana and Bled takes just 45 minutes, leaving plenty of free time to enjoy city sightseeing and scenic lakeside walks. 
This suggested itinerary can be tailor-made to suit your time frame and accommodation preferences - choose from 3/4* or 4*+ hotels.

Mr J Reeves

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.
