Crossing Croatia and Slovenia, from convivial Zagreb to elegant Ljubljana, this is a tour of capital cities, coastal towns, and natural wonders; where a Roman theatre, medieval churches, and modern resorts share the bill with magnificent lakes and mythical caves

A marvellous meandering of these two compact countries begins in Croatia’s capital, Zagreb; small enough to stroll around, large enough for a lively cultural calendar, and blending several centuries of architecture with a vivacious café scene. From city sights to scenic Nature, the tour takes in the flora and fauna, karst rocks, and waterfalls of Plitvice Lakes National Park; then heads for the coast, where Opatija’s temperate climate, sheltered shore and bay-forest backdrop tempted Chekhov, Puccini, and James Joyce to its glamorous Habsburg-era villas. On the sunset seafront of the Istrian Peninsula, Pula boasts one of Europe’s best-preserved Roman amphitheatres, while nearby Rovinj brings romance and charm to its old-world streets and colourful water’s edge. Crossing the border into Slovenia, our first stop is a fascinating visit to the fabled formations of Postojna Caves, before continuing to blissfully beautiful Bled; a ‘green destination’ in every sense, set against a backdrop of Julian Alps, hemming a gorgeous glacial lake, and focused on sustainable tourism. Last, but most definitely not least, we visit Slovenia’s picturesque, pint-sized capital, leafy Ljubljana, recently voted ‘European Best Destination’.

 

Notes:

This is a busy itinerary with many visits on foot including some uneven surfaces and inclines.
