A ninety minute north of Ljubljana drive brings us to an enchanted little fairytale like island in the middle of Lake Bled. High on a hillside stands Bled castle…one that has stood for over 1000 years. It is the oldest castle in Slovenia.
Going north, we arrive at our next stop, the beautiful seaside beach resort of Opatija. This is a popular vacation spot with seaside restaurants, charming streets, lots of boating activities, and a beautiful shoreline ready to tend to hundreds of vacationers. It’s also the hometown of our tour guide so he was very excited to share his home city with us.
