Explore cities steeped in medieval history, and lush landscapes dotted with sparkling lakes as you travel through the fascinating countries of Croatia and Slovenia. Flying into Zagreb, you’ll be whisked away to your hand-picked hotel in Ptuj, located on the banks of the Drava River. Slovenia's oldest town is home to an enchanting and beautifully preserved medieval centre, and during your time here, you’ll take a fascinating walking tour and drop by the Ptuj Wine Cellar to taste some of the excellent local wines. Spend some time in Maribor, a former European Capital of Culture, and enjoy a river cruise with a glass of wine before making your way to beautiful Bled.
Enjoy a cruise on the lake’s emerald-green waters and explore Bled Castle, which is stunningly located on a clifftop offering beautiful views over the lake itself. Next on your expertly-crafted itinerary is the elegant Slovenian capital of Ljubljana. Stroll around the centre, where Baroque buildings and ancient ramparts are overlooked by a grand castle, and visit the stunning Postojna caves. Head into the depths of the caverns by train on an eerie journey, where you can marvel at incredible stalactites and stalagmites, and sculpted galleries of rock. Leaving Slovenia behind, it’s on to neighbouring Croatia, where you’ll stay in the lovely seaside resort of Opatija, before your terrific tour heads to the wonders of nature at the UNESCO-listed Plitvice Lakes National Park. Famed for its sixteen lakes which are interconnected by a series of cascading waterfalls, explore the area by foot and then take to the waters on a relaxing cruise on the largest lake - Lake Kozjak. Your terrific tour culminates in the Croatian capital of Zagreb, where you can discover the city’s many highlights, including the charming main square and the impressive cathedral. On your final evening, head to a local restaurant for a farewell dinner of traditional Croatian cuisine and reflect on memories of a truly unforgettable travel experience.
