When you arrive to the beautiful capital of Slovenia, Ljubljana, I suggest you get lost. Walk and walk and get used to its beautiful well-kept streets, full of color. Sit down to eat in one of the many small restaurants and observe around you. Do not forget to climb the Ljubljana Castle to have incredible views. Take this first day to know the city.
We rent a car to go to the caves of Postojna (39min by car). There we will take the Two Adventures tour where we will enter to one of the largest caves in Europe. There you get on to a train-type cart and enter this amazing world under the earth. Really wonderful. After the tour to the caves we can enter the Predjama castle that is right there. Is castle built inside a giant rock that will undoubtedly leave you frozen because of its beauty.
From Ljubljana we go to a very famous summer resort. The jewel of Slovenia, Lake Bled (40 min by car) where it has in the middle a small island with a church and on top of a cliff is the castle of Bled. Many families enjoy this lake on their vacations since not only you can bathe in this beautiful lake but you can also make beautiful trekking, biking and rowing.
Relax and rest. Row to the middle of the lake and meet the island of the church. It is not very big but it is enough to house the Church of the Assumption in whose belfry there is a famous bell that they say brings good luck to those who make it sound. And of course, take as many photographs as you can and fill yourself with energy to return to the capital of Ljubljana.

I recommend that all reservations for hotels, tours, admissions to attractions be made in advance because the quotas can be full. For Vintgar it is not necessary to buy the ticket online, you can buy it in the same place.
I recommend buying a chip at the airport to have GPS in the car with the phone.
Slovenia is a country that is part of the Schengen area.
In Postojna we bought the ticket Two Adventures that allows us to enter the caves and the castle.
