Moving on from Pula, this morning we will cross the border once again in order to enter the country that belonged to Yugoslavia unitl vvery recently: Slovenia. This is a beautiful country, dominated by its lucious green mountains and the incredible caves which are located between the mountains. Thanks to the Karstic phenomenon, stalamites and stalactites have materialised, these are incredibly beautiful and rare, all-natural sculptures.
We will stop in Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia and european city with the highest density of students and visit the Škocjan Caves. Incredible caves were formed between these mountains. Karstic phenomenon generated estalagmitas y estalactitas.
Curiously, Ljubljana is the city with the largest density of students… and by spending the night here, you will enjoy its young ambience.

Ljubjana is a rich and prosperous city, that was able to rise from the ashes of the second world war and balcanic conflicts and now can be considered an elegant european capital, with a very unique style that combines the influences of its geographical neighbours. From mediterranean arquitecture, through to gothic, germanic or balcanic style…
You can get lost in the old town, on the Prezeren square, walk through the same bridge three times, given that it’s triple and go to the Saint Nicolas cathedral. If you have energy, you can also climb up to the castel dominating the city.
