The highlight of this trip was certainly the trip to see the horse show at Lipica, although you pay extra! The Karst region is a big contrast to Bled and the local guide made the trip very interesting with a chance to look at how the region has developed with a visit to a preserved old village. As this is the home of a very famous horse breed then if you like horses it is a must.
The best of the two trips that we booked; breathtaking scenery, excellent guide and a place where time seems to have stood still. The boat ride to St Mary's church is a very gentle affair, all the better for it, and you get a good half hour at the church to explore. The views from the island are superb. A very enjoyable visit to Bled Castle follows, the visit finished off with local cream cakes, delicious!
