Welcome weeks are finished but there is one cherry on the top - Slovenia trip across our beautiful country.
The trip is going to take three full days. Leaving early on Friday morning and arriving back on Sunday evening. Inbetween get ready to experience fun at Slovenia's finest destinations.

Day 1: LAŠKO and BLED AREA
How to open the Slovenia trip - by not being thirsty, right? We'll start the trip with a good taste in our mouth. 1st stop is going to be in Laško with a tour of our most famous brewery that ends with beer tasting! (NOTE: if you come from Štajerska region, as we do, you almost have to drink Laško).
We will continue our way to the most beautiful place in Slovenia, Bled, where we will stop for lunch . With full bellies, we have to relax and lose some weight by pedalling to a cute island in the middle of the lake that has a Gothic church on the top. There's a bell that you can ring 3-times and your wish will come true!
We are going to finish the first day with a chill party in a bar in Kranj.

Day 2: POSTOJNA
After breakfast, the road is going to take us to visit the most popular tourist cave in Europe – Postojna cave. The cave’s railway will take us in the magical network of Karst tunnels. The cave is a home to a very special animal – the human fish (Proteus). Slovenians like to call it a baby dragon. In the cave it is a bit colder, don't forget another sweater or a jacket. You will also have the possibility to show off with your singing and the cave will respond with an amazing echo at the end.
After the cave, we are going to see the Predjama castle. It's a Renaissance castle built within a cave mouth with a legend of Erazem of Predjama, that we will explain to you there.
On the way to the Slovenian coastline, we will stop at another castle, Socerb, that offers a great view over Slovenia and Italy. You can make some pretty insane pictures of the sunset there. In the evening we will come to our apartments and finish the day with a private party next to the sea.

Day 3: SLOVENIAN COAST
After two extremely full and fun days, we will need something to relax ;) After breakfast, a short walk to the oldest and most popular sea town Piran. On the town hill, you have a view of 3 countries: Slovenia, Italy and Croatia. Some free time for a coffee there and then lunch in Lucija. The second favourite touristic destination is Portorož. Get ready for some crazy see adventures. We can catch some sun there for a nice end of our trip.

Who knows, maybe at our way back home, there might even be a surprise waiting for you...

The trip is all inclusive and consists of 2 overnight stays with breakfast, lunch and dinner, bus and all entrance fees. We are having lunch in one of the best restaurants in Slovenia!
