Day Trips & Excursions

Ljubljana also serves as a great jumping off point for several day trips and excursions. The Karst region, famous for it's limestone caves, is one of the most popular. Several locations offer guided tours through the caves, and though it is a bit commercialized, the caves themselves are eerily beautiful. Lake Bled, the lakeside town popular for outdoor and water activities and it's beautiful scenery, is another ideal trip from Ljubljana. The resort towns on Slovenian's Adriatic coast are less than two hours away and are another day or overnight trip well worth taking from the city's capital. Portoroz and Pirin, only about 2 kilometers apart on the coast, are both wonderful seaside towns where visitors can enjoy water activities, shopping and dining along the Adriatic.
