This harmonious mix of beautiful nature, rich history and genuine hospitality has been attracting visitors for centuries. It was here that the Yugoslavia Royal Family once had a summer residence, later replaced by the summer residence of President Tito, which can still be seen by the lake.
After an enjoyable drive, you will be able to board a traditional ‘pletna’ boat and smoothly glide over the lake to visit the only Slovenian island. Its top is crowned with a little church, and you will have an opportunity to ring the mysterious wishing bell. A scenic road takes us around the lake and to the medieval castle perched high on a cliff. Built over a thousand years ago, it was once an unconquerable property of the Bishops of Brixen.
On the return journey, we are going to stop in the picturesque town of Radovljica. It is a medieval core that charms with frescoed facades of the houses, grand mansion and magnificent gothic church of St. Peter. The mansion houses an apicultural museum displaying an essential part of Slovenian history and culture, as the rich tradition of beekeeping, represented an important rural branch. After unfurling some secrets of beekeeping, visiting gingerbread museum and having lunch you will return to Ljubljana.
