When talking about what can be seen in Slovenia, we certainly have to start with the capital. It is a not too big city that we can see in depth in several days. Its castle stands on a massif at the top of the city since the XNUMXth century. The building that exists today was rebuilt during the XNUMXth century. You can take a tour and have a drink in the bars that are in it, in addition to visiting it freely. In the capital we also have to see the Bridge of Dragons, flanked by statues of dragons, or the Cathedral of Saint Nicholas, one of the most beautiful in Europe. The city also offers many museums, such as the National Gallery, the Museum of Modern Art or the National Museum. If we finally want to rest from so many visits, we can take a trip along the Ljubljana river or rest in the Tivoli Park, where there is a greenhouse and an open-air library.

Piran

This city has been under the influence of different empires and in fact Slovenian and Italian are spoken today. Like many other cities that are open to the sea, Piran had an old wall that began to be built in the XNUMXth century. At present we can only see a small space that remains standing. It is possible to climb the wall and it is worth traveling this stretch to be able to see the views over the city and the sea. The Cathedral of St. George is its main religious building and has a Venetian Renaissance style that attracts attention, especially in its interior, full of frescoes and details. This city also offers a spectacular coastline, with an area of ​​bars and restaurants and beaches where you can enjoy the good weather. As for the museums, they have a lot to do with it being a coastal city, since we can visit the Museum of the Shells, the Maritime Museum or the Museum of Underwater Activities.

Bled is a little village next to Lake Bled. Actually, what most attracts the attention of this area is precisely that lake, which you will surely have seen in countless photos. It is possible to take a boat to navigate the large lake and approach its small island, in which the church of the Assumption stands out. The other jewel in the crown in the Bled area is its castle. Bled Castle sits high on a hill above the lake, with spectacular views. In the castle we can see the XNUMXth century Gothic chapel, the courtyards, the castle museum or the winery.
