DUBROVNIK / CRUISE AND DINNER 

Sv.Jakov /St.James/ beach in Dubrovnik is one of the most beautiful beaches in this area. Most attractive pictures of the Old City were taken from there. To get there it will be a special treat. You will board a motorboat that will take you around the Old City walls to St. Jakov Beach, where you will enjoy a dinner with excellent Dalmatian wine.

When the dinner is over the boat will bring you to the Old City Port. Between there and Pile Gate where the bus will be waiting for you, you will be able to enjoy Dubrovnik by night.

(Boat ride depends on weather conditions)

 

BLED /  LAKE BLED & LAKE BOHINJ 

Bled, with its surroundings of natural beauty, is a jewel among the Alpine resorts. You will take a ride on a unique small rowing boat called “Pletna” to the scenic island in the middle of the lake. After disembarking the boat, visit the island’s old church housing an impressive art collection. You’ll have some free time to enjoy the magnificent views of the island. Later, the boat will bring you back ashore and you will continue by motorcoach to another Alpine lake resort – Bohinj, beautifully incorporated amidst the dense woods and spectacular mountains. The journey will take you through some very old typical Slovenian villages with gorgeous landscapes. Your excursion will end later in the afternoon.

(If during winter months operation of boat Plenta would not be possible due to weather conditions, we will replace it with coffee and traditional cake Kremsnita).

 

BLED / TOUR OF RADOVLJICA WITH DINNER 

This evening visit the little medieval town of Radovljica and take a short walk through its old section. Then, stop at a popular and warm country inn “Kunstelj” known for its family hospitality and excellent Slovenian cuisine since 1873. Upon arrival visit their wine cellar and taste some of the  Premium Slovenian wines. Your dinner will include a selection of traditional dishes prepared according to old Slovenian recipes, while folklore performers will show you some of the local Slovenian dances.

ZAGREB / KUMROVEC AND DINNER 

A short yet scenic drive takes us to Kumrovec, situated on the bank of the river Sutla, along the Croatian-Slovenian border. Kumrovec’ fame is that it was a birthplace of the late Marshal Tito; the president of former Yugoslavia, whose house has been turned into a museum. Today, the major attraction of Kumrovec is the Ethnological Museum Staro Selo (Old Village) with very well-preserved village houses from the turn of the 19th – 20th century. So far 40-odd houses and other farm-stead facilities have been restored, which makes Staro Selo the most attractive place of this kind in Croatia. Later, we follow a winding road through the Zagorje Hills. An early dinner of genuine local specialties and wine is served at the restaurant/farm Gresna Gorica (The Hill of Sin) with magnificent views of the 15th-century castle Veliki Tabor.
