In view of Slovenia's diverse landscape, visitors are offered an equally wide selection of (natural) excursion destinations.
The Postojna Cave is one of the most popular caves in Europe for tourists. It is part of Predjama Castle, the largest cave castle in the world. Guided tours through the interior of the karst cave provide exciting insights into the world of natural stone sculptures and the fascinating animal world inside. Especially impressive is the Grottenholm - a Lurch that can live for up to 100 years.
Piran is considered the "city of salt" because of its salt works. Here, salt extraction still takes place according to well-known processes. In addition, the coastal town impresses with the remains of the medieval curtain wall, with its architecture in general and with its numerous attractions, including the maritime museum or the local aquarium. If one strolls through the narrow alleys of Piran, one usually recognizes parallels to nearby Venice.
In the northwest of Slovenia lies the municipality of Bled with its eponymous Lake Bled. The unique feature of the lake is that it is the only Slovenian alpine lake to have an island on which the St. Mary's Church is located. The castle of Bled offers a wonderful view over the lake and the surrounding mountains of the Alps. For those who would like to visit the island up close, a trip on a traditional Slovenian rowing boat, the Pletna, is worthwhile.
