A half hour's drive west of Ljubljana lies Škofja Loka, a charming town with a well-preserved Old Town. Here you will find English information plaques and a revamped historical castle museum. The most interesting streets are the rectangular ‘squares' of Mestni trg, Cankarjev trg and Spodnji trg.

This 14,000-year-old alpine lake, an hour's drive northwest of Ljubljana, is simply stunning – a glacial lake fringed by pine trees and vaulting peaks all around. It may bustle with tourists for much of the year, but on a serene morning when the mist clears and the alpine peaks reflect across the water, it is hard not to be spellbound by magical Bled.
