Green Heart of Europe 

A quick tour of Slovenia — the green heart of Europe —, your route will take you to the Karst Plateau, with its network of over 8,000 subterranean caves, including that of Postojna. Then, pedaling along the picturesque gorges of the Soča River, you will reach the Triglav National Park and its long pass leading to Slovenia’s must-see attraction: Lake Bled, its island and its monastery — the most photographed spot in the country. Next up is Celje, the fortified “City of Princes”, offering cultural activities and thermal baths. From there, the peaceful, panoramic Krka River valley brings you to the lovely capital city of Ljubljana, with its Parisian-style architecture and cuisine. Dobrodošli!
