Dear Friends and Travellers,
Welcome to our newest adventure, this time come with us to live an amazing adventure in
Croatia and Slovenia! Come enjoy the breath-taking landscapes and magical places of
Zagreb, Plitvice Lakes National Park, Bled and Ljubljana!
Our trip will start with a nice bus ride around Europe that will lead us straight to Lake Bled,
Slovenia in the morning. There, we will stay 2 hours so that you can fully enjoy the scenery.
To ensure you make the most of your time there, here are some tips for you!
Bled is an ancient Slovenian city with a fairy tale like look. Explore a marvellous scenery
composed of a lake, the alps mountains, the oldest castle of Slovenian and a cute little island
on the lake! Being there is like being transported into a magical place, to fully enjoy this
atmosphere here are our favourite things to do in Bled!
Firstly, if the weather is nice, you can enjoy bathing into the lake’s water. On hot summer
days the temperature of the lake can climb up to 25 degrees! If swimming is not your thing,
you can enjoy cruising on the lake with some of the many boats available there. Using one of
the boats is also the only way to visit Bled Island. Our recommendation is to take a Pletna
boat so that you discover the beautiful scenery in front of view and take time to visit the
island and its Church of Mother God and its 52 meters bell tower! (a 10min boat ride to the
island cost 12€, visiting the church at its tower cost 6€ for adults and 4€ for students)
If you are feely sporty, you can ride or walk around the lake. Enjoy the beautiful landscape
and the cosy atmosphere of the place. (the tour of the lake is 5,9km long, the walk takes
1:15h, for bikes renting one will cost you 5€)
You can also do one of the hikes that will lead you to some amazing viewing point! There are
15 hikes available and as our time there is short, we recommend you hike the Straza Hiking
trail that takes approximately 1:30 hours and offers an amazing viewpoint at 646m above the
For another great viewpoint, climb to the castle that overlooks the lake to witness the beauty
of the place, the Julian Alps and the castle itself! Hiking from the lake to the castle takes
approximately 15 to 20 minutes and visiting the castle cost 13€ for adults and 8,50€ for
Finally, while in Bled you can grab a bite and one of the many restaurants and cafés in Bled
centre and taste…a Bled Cream Cake! A special cake only made in this area! With a nice
coffee or tea, this can be a nice breakfast to start the day! Our favourite place to taste one is
Jasmin Café, where you can have some good quality coffee, tea, and cakes at affordable
We will then leave the Lake to go to our next stop: Zagreb! We will check-in at the hotel and
then…it’s time to visit! Enjoy your free time in Zagreb to explore the city, taste some
specialities and learn about the history! To do that here are some of our tips:
A must-see for every tourist in Zagreb is the Upper Town. Stroll around the oldest streets of
Zagreb and enjoy the cobblestone streets, unique buildings, and historical surroundings! The
upper town being on the top of the city, you will need to take the stairs or the funicular.
Taking the funicular is a fun experience as it is the shortest in the world (only 66 meters
long), it takes one minute to join the Upper Town, so do not hesitate to use this unique type
of transportation for fun experience! (ticket cost 0,50€)
While being in the Upper Town, you have many things to see such as the Dolac Market, St
Mark Church, the Kaptol and the Stone gate (Kamenita Vrata).
In the Upper Town is also present a unique museum: the museum of Broken Relationships.
In this museum, you can witness many stories about broken hearts or relationships. Visiting it
is a unique experience, but it can be emotional, so take some tissues with you! (entry fee of
5€ for adults and 4€ for students)
The Kaptol Neighbourhood is also a must see in Zagreb. This Upper Town Neighbourhood is
marvellous to wander around but also home to a beautiful Cathedral. Build in 1094, it has
witnessed a lot of the Croatian history. Moreover, it is the tallest building in Croatia so do not
be afraid to check it out! (entry to the Cathedral is free)
The upper town is not the only thing to see in Zagreb. The Lower Town is very interesting
too! It is home to more modern buildings, green spaces, and a lot of museums!
First stop, for archaeological and arts fans, the Mimara Museum is the place for you. With art
works from well-known artist like Rembrandt, Rubens, Goya, Manet and so on, this place will
show you everything that you need to satisfy your art interest. (entry fee of 5€ for adults and
4€ for students)
For some more art, you can also visit the Strossmayer Gallery of Old Masters where you can
find beautiful paintings from Bellini, Bruegel and Carpeaux. (entry fee of 4€ for adults and
1,30€ for students)
During your time in Zagreb you also need to taste some delicious Croatian food! Our
personal favourite, a Licitar. This honey dough cookie shaped in a heart form is very
important in the Croatian culture and is even recognized by the UNESCO. Eating them is
great but buying them as a souvenir to give to your loved one is great too! (they are available
in almost everywhere in Zagreb, but prices might vary depending on the shop and size)
If sweet dishes are not you cup of tea, you can also enjoy some salted Croatian specialities
in the Heritage Croatian Food and the La Struck restaurants where you will find good quality
food at affordable prices!
During you adventure, do not forget to take a stop at the Zagreb Eye. With its 360-degree
observation deck, this building offers a marvellous view on the city! (entry to the tower cost

very festive city and to honour that, take part in a huge pub crawl with the Uniflucht Team!

the program! (ticket of 10€ for party guides, organised drinking games, 5 shots and entrance

unique and marvellous pictures while being blow-minded by the place.
While there take part in one of the many hiking trails, the smaller are of 3,5km while the

being in an adventure movie!
You can also cycle around the Plitvice Park or do some water rafting. (renting a bike cost 15€
for a day while rafting will cost you 48€ to 33€ depending on which tour you choose)

UNESCO protected site!

or 39,99€ if you have a student card.

relaxing and calming atmosphere.
Speaking of calming and relaxing place, Ljubljana has also a huge park near the city centre!
This Tivoli Park offers many activities such as mini gold, bowling alley and so on but also
some nice spots to chill especially for a picnic! So do not hesitate during your day there, to
visit this cosy park.
If picnic is great, you need to eat some special food to fully feel like a Slovenian. Our
recommendation is that you stop at the Open Kitchen Market and take some traditional
Slovenian food on the go. Our personal favourite thing to eat in Ljubljana are some nice and
fresh Slovenian meat and cheese as they are perfect to eat on the go! For dessert, take a
Traditional Slovenian Cream Cake or a Burek (a delicious Slovenian pastry) you will not
