For an hour and a half we were like Hobbits in Lord of the Rings, threading our way along a subtly-lit path through the stalagmites and a jaw-dropping cavern that I guess would have swallowed the world’s biggest sports stadium.
We had a stop at Koper on a long & enjoyable Oceania cruise from Barcelona to Venice. For the day in Koper, we were fortunate to book with Roundabout for a full day tour to Lake Bled, which was gorgeous, and to Ljubljana, which was amazing.View all reviews
