Often described as the hidden gem of Europe, Ljubljana has preserved its small-town friendliness and, at the same time, it has everything all the larger capitals have. In the summer, cafes set up terrace seating along the river, giving a relaxed Mediterranean feel, while in winter it takes on a dreamy central European character.

Check into your hotel for the first of two nights and enjoy a relaxing 30 minute massage each to start you off on your wellness journey.
