Ljubljana

Ljubljana was named the ’Green Capital of Europe’ recently and it’s easy to see why. If you like the outdoors, this city has a lot to offer you. Start with a 2-hour bus to Lake Bohinj and Lake Bled.
Lake Bohinj

Bohinjsko Jezero to the locals, Lake Bohinj was formed by glacial snowmelt and is Slovenia’s largest permanent lake. The Julian Alps on three sides of the emerald-turquoise waters make for some great views. 

Lake Bled

On that little cookie of an island on Lake Bled, the ancient Slavs worshipped Ziva, goddess of love and immortality. A church now stands on the island but the lake seems to have Ziva written all over it.
