Our excursion around Ljubljana is a bespoke experience exclusively for Radiology International that you won’t find in any of the guidebooks. The tour takes in key monuments that give insight into the city's rich history before you venture on to see the glacial Lake Bled, fed by hot springs, which has been included on the list of candidates for the new seven wonders of the world.
We will begin the day in Ljubljana where we will visit some of the city's most striking Baroque monuments and sites, including Ljubljana Castle. The castle was built in the 15th century and stands atop a hill above the historic old center of Ljublana. This mighty medieval fortress has served as military housing, as well as the royal residence for several centuries. Ljubljana is named the Dragon City because of the many dragons used as protection on monuments and decorations. Next, we move on to a very special arrangement just for Radiology International. Lake Bled has been considered a world-renowned paradise for centuries, impressing visitors with its natural beauty, wealth of legend and special powers to restore well-being. You will be transported to the country's only island in pletnas, traditional wooden boats, which are operated by a single rower, to the Bled Island in the middle of the lake. Here you will have the option to climb 99 stone steps to reach the Assumption of Mary Church, which dates back to 1655. Inside the church, you can ring the church bell to make a wish (you only get one!). Legend has it that if you make your wish when you ring the bell, it will come true. You may walk to the 1,000-year-old Bled Castle, perched atop a towering cliff overlooking the lake, or enjoy a ride around the island in a horse-drawn carriage with your coachman known as a fijaker.
Before you return to the hotel, you will enjoy kremšnita, the traditional Bled cream cake.
** Please wear comfortable walking shoes for this day trip.
