EXCURSION TO BLED
Bled lake is one of the top attractions in Slovenia, called also the Alpine pearl. At the one-day tour we will take you to its small island by a typical »pletna boat«. You will have a chance to ring a wishing bell in the Church of the Assumption. When returning to the shore, we will have a short walk along the lake. We will have a lunch and try also "kremšnita", the traditional Bled custard cream cake. For the end of our trip we will take you up to Bled castle, one of the most spectacular castles in Slovenia, perched on a sheer cliff high above the lake.
EXCURSION TO CELJE
Celje is a city of experiences! It opens up a magnificent vault of historical, cultural, tourist, recreational and culinary riches. After a short stroll through the old city centre, we will look into the archaeological exhibition site in the cellars of the Princely Palace. We will continue to romantic, enticing, magnificent, but also dark and frightening – the Celje Old Castle. A stop for a lunch top will be the town of Šempeter from where we will continue to Roman Necroplis - almost 2,000 years ago, an immensely important Roman road passing through Šempeter, connecting Roman towns Aquilea, Emona, Celeia and Poetovio. And finaly we will look into the karst underground cave Pekel. The 1159-meter long path through the cave is easy and well maintained.
