Tues 18 July 2017: Join Johnsons Coaches for a 10 day coach holiday to Slovenia staying in the fairytale setting of Lake Bled.
The delightful country of Slovenia has become a hugely popular holiday destination and the spa resort of Bled, located on the sunny side of the Julian Alps, is surrounded by an area of great natural beauty. A fairytale setting, the medieval castle looms from its rocky perch above an emerald lake surrounded by Alpine peaks. This tour showcases the best this country has to offer from soaring peaks to ancient caves and from medieval villages to the capital city, Ljuljana.

A day at leisure to relax and enjoy the area. There are lots of things to see and do, but top of the list must be a boat trip across to Bled Island. This weekend Bled celebrates its annual Festival of Light event, where the city skies are lit by fireworks and a host of coloured lights flow across the lake water.
After breakfast we set off on a guided excursion to Postojna and Lipica. The world famous Postojna Caves are one of Slovenia's "Wonders of the World". Travel on a little cave train through a realm of stalagmites and stalactites, illuminated halls and subterranean lakes. We continue to Lipica Stud Farm for a visit and presentation at the breeding and training school of the famous Lippizaner Horses.
Today we travel to Ljubljana, Slovenia's capital city with a blend of Italian and Baroque style architecture and delightful old quarter. A local guide will give us a 2-hour guided tour showing us the delights of this beautiful city, including the Town Hall, St Nicholas' Cathedral, the Central Market and the Triple Bridge. The rest of the day is at leisure to explore - perhaps taking a tourist train to the top of Castle Hill for great views of the city from Castle Belvedere.
A wonderful excursion today with a scenic mountain drive through the Triglav National Park to Kranjska Gora - a nature lovers Alpine paradise with alpine valleys, mountain ridges, the peaks of the Julian Alps and high mountain lakes.
Departing Lake Bled we head north with ever-changing vistas as we reach Salzburg for our penultimate nights stay at the Best Western Imlauer Hotel.
