From the Alps to The Adriatic, this cycling holiday really brings you the best of Slovenia. This small country is a land of contrasts and is rich in both scenery and history.The holiday begins in Bled, a true fairytale town complete with castle overlooking a beautiful lake, which itself has an island with a church. It is one of the most photogenic locations in Europe. Cycling away from here you are surrounded by the Julian Alps, dominated by Slovenia's highest mountain, Triglav. The route takes you to Ljubljana, the compact capital city, with its famous buildings and architecture. The next highlight is perhaps Postojna, where a visit to the world famous caves is thoroughly recommended. Continuing through Slovenian countryside you come to Lipica, home to the famous Lipizaner horses, associated with the Spanish Riding School in Vienna. You have the option of detouring via the Italian city of Trieste to eventually reach the end of your holiday on the Adriatic coast at the port of Koper, which has an interesting old town.
