Ljubljana Castle

Slovenia is a small country of green valleys, mountains crowned by the snow, dense forest crossed by slow flowing rivers and caves full of mystery.

But, do you know which are the five most recommended places to visit in this country?…

– Ljubljana Castle

The Castle of Ljubljana is the structure that dominates everything at the top of a hill in the centre of Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia. From its observation tower, the panoramic view of the city is amazing. Currently in the Ljubljana Castle are held arts and music festivals.

If you visit this castle, don’t miss out on the opportunity to get to know Ljubljana. Its historic old town is very beautiful and picturesque.

– Bled Castle

This castle is situated on a cliff, 150 meters on the waters of Bled Lake. It is one of the most photographed images of Slovenia.

– The Lipica Stables

More than 430 years ago, the emperor of Austria established the Lipica Stables over the hills of the Karst region, in the west area of the country, and very close to the border with Italy. These stables are still open and can be visited. They are currently devoted to the care of white horses.
