Best Trips in Ljubljana Region 2023


Velika Planina
Sitting near Kamnik, a typically picturesque Slovenian town, is the lower station of the cable car which carries you to a vast mountain plateau: Velika Planina. Perched on the open alpine plains is a herdsmen's settlement, with its quirky architecture, simple way of life, and traditionally made dairy products. Herdsmen-style cottages are available to rent and lodging houses also provide accommodation and traditional food, completing the alpine experience. We highly recommend this idyllic and unusual winter wonderland. Read more...

Bogenšperk Castle
Located less than an hour away in Šmartno pri Litiji, Castle Bogenšperk is a sight to behold; its red roof and white facade stands out with pride against the greenery that surrounds it. The renaissance castle can trace its history back to the 12th century as Castle Lihtenberk, a medieval fortress located nearby and built by the powerful Lihtenberg family. Following an earthquake in 1511 that rendered it uninhabitable, the Wagen family, who were in possession of the building until the beginning of the 17th century, undertook the task of constructing what you see today.
