Get to know Croatia’s capital through the included city tour. The city is packed with historic buildings, such as the neo-gothic St. Marcus Church.

Enjoy a free afternoon in the town or back at your hotel.

From Croatian capital we head north to one of the greenest and most charming capitals of Europe. Ljubljana – capital of Slovenia.

Afterwards, optional boat ride on the lake Bled: board an old-fashioned hand propelled gondola known as "pletna" for a private cruise across the lake to the small island in its centre. Here you will find the Church of the Assumption whose 15th century bell should be rung to bring good luck!
