Highlights

The gem of central Europe, Slovenia has a slice of mountainous Switzerland, charming Bavaria, and enchanting (and cheap) Prague all wrapped into one. The resort town of Lake Bled, with its 1000 year old castle perched on a 300 ft. cliff over the lake, is like something from a medieval movie set.  It is one of Europe’s hottest up and coming resort towns with its affordable spa centers & treatments, and now its growing reputation as an adventure sports center to rival those in Switzerland and Austria. This is a ski & spa weekend with a day of skiing costing less than 25 Euro (and having slope only a 5 minute walk from the hotel), and saunas, Jacuzzi & spa center in our 3-star hotel.

*On our return Sunday we include a stop in the capital city of Ljubljana!
