Koper — 2 nights

A bridge between the Mediterranean and alpine regions of Slovenia, Koper is a small town with big appeal.
Popular historic sites such as Koper Cathedral and Bell Tower and Grad Prem are in your itinerary. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Lepa Vida Boutique Winery and St. Anne's Friary. Take a break from Koper with a short trip to Predjama Castle in Postojna, about 54 minutes away. There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of St. George's Church, make a trip to Walls of Piran, get a new perspective on nature at Magical World of Shells Museum, and pause for some serene contemplation at Church of St. Francis of Assisi.

Spend the 11th (Thu) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's much more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Franciscan Church of the Annunciation, snap pictures at Triple Bridge, explore the historical opulence of Ljubljana Castle, and wander the streets of Ljubljana Old Town.

Sunny Side of the Alps
From snowcapped Alpine peaks to sandy Adriatic beaches, a trip to Slovenia is like taking several vacations at once. Whatever the season, the country offers enticing natural attractions, all close at hand, including thick forests, scenic valleys, cave systems, waterfalls, lakes, and the Adriatic coast. For those seeking an active holiday, you'll fine an abundance of ski slopes, trails to hike, roads to bike, and rocks to climb. Pay a visit to some of Slovenia's spa resorts and take advantage of the fresh mountain air and thermal waters. Various castles, churches, and historical towns--many of which are fully preserved--tell stories of the country's past. In Slovenia's major cities, admire the architecture, explore the local arts, visit museums, and chat with the locals over a cup of coffee. Slovenian cuisine offers a blend of Alpine and Mediterranean tastes and is definitely worth trying, along with the country's wines.
