While in Croatia, why not to meet its northerly neighbor? The magical Slovenian lake district is explored in this full-day private tour of Bled and Bohinj, departing from and returning to your Zagreb hotel.
In the morning you will meet your private chauffeur and you will start your drive to the Slovenian Alps. After a two-hour drive you will arrive in Bled and meet your private local guide and start the tour of Bled Lake and its surroundings.
One of the most picture-perfect sights in the world is that of the Church of the Assumption of Saint Mary perched on Bled Island in the middle of the lake. The church is known for the legend of a young widow named Poliksena who once lived in Bled Castle. In a memory of her husband, she had a bell cast for the chapel on the island. While the bell was being ferried over to the island, a terrible storm struck the boat and sank them both. Poliksena was so devastated that she asked the Pope to donate another bell, and after her death the Pope consecrated a new bell and sent it to Bled Island. Since then people say that whoever rings this bell in honor of the Virgin Mary will get a wish granted.
Another spectacular monument on the tour is Bled Castle - a Medieval castle built on a precipice above the city, overlooking the lake. During the warmer months, the castle courtyard hosts numerous cultural events, including the popular Medieval Days, when Medieval life is reenacted for visitors.
Your next destination is Lake Bohinj - Slovenia's largest glacial lake, 2.6 miles long and 0.5 mile wide. As opposed to Bled lake, Bohinj does not have glamorous hotels and other tourist facilities -- it is pure untouched nature, where you can relax and enjoy numerous outdoor activities, including swimming in the lake.
In the late afternoon hours you will return to your hotel in Zagreb
