A Day Trip from Ljubljana

  • 2 min read

A large number of tourists visiting Slovenia are instantly drawn to the capital city of Ljubljana. It’s an urban haven, brimming with museums, splendid architecture, vibrant markets, and abundant souvenir shops, offering a rich palette of experiences to city-break enthusiasts.

If your journey has brought you to Ljubljana for a few days, you might be considering staying within the city’s charm. However, let us tantalize your adventurous spirit with the wonders nestled in the foothills of the Julian Alps. 

Bled, only a 55-kilometer drive or a leisurely 90-minute train ride from Ljubljana, offers an enchanting escape with ample time left for exploration. 

Although Bled is a quaint town, it has a huge heart, literally! You’ll discover the ‘Heart of Bled’ sculpture on the lake’s eastern edge, thoughtfully situated to frame the charming island within its center. 

The array of activities in Bled caters to all tastes, but for an off-the-beaten-path experience, head north to our Zipline Dolinka tour. Over a span of two and a half hours, you’ll zoom across 4 kilometers of stunning landscapes, savoring an unparalleled bird’s-eye view. 

After your adrenaline-filled adventure, you might enjoy a light lunch followed by a serene walk through the awe-inspiring Vintgar Gorge. Stroll the wooden bridges and pathways that meander over the captivatingly blue Radovna River, a true feast for your camera lens. 

Next on your itinerary should be a relaxing pletna boat ride back in Bled, transporting you to the quaint Bled Island. This gem hosts a range of historical attractions and offers a fresh perspective of the lake and castle. 

If the day allows, a visit to Bled Castle is a must. However, if time isn’t on your side, simply admiring one of Slovenia’s oldest and most magnificent castles from a distance will surely leave a lasting impression.

As the day concludes, you might find yourself craving a hearty meal. Bled’s plethora of restaurants around the lake provides the perfect setting to wind down. Alternatively, you could return to Ljubljana and reminisce over the day’s adventures with your newly captured photos. Talk about a stellar Instagram story! 

These suggestions merely scratch the surface of what Bled has to offer, and we bet you’ll find yourself planning another visit to uncover more of its treasures.
