Spending time on a conference doesn’t mean only hard work and learning. During SCiM, you will have two days off to enjoy and admire Slovenia’s natural beauty and wonders. That’s right; we are taking you on excursion. Its main purpose is to take some time off away from lectures and other activities and get to know other parts of Slovenia and its beauty.
Date of excursion: 30th of June and 1st of July.
DAY 1: Our first destination will be Ljubljana – the capital of Slovenia. You will be able to explore the centre of our capital city, first by boat and later from the castle on the hill. Of course, you will have some free time to explore Ljubljana on your own.
Second after Ljubljana is Postojna cave, one of Slovenia’s most popular sights. Postojna cave is a 24-kilometre long karst cave, with more than 200-year-old tradition. Being visited by more than 36 million tourists, it is definitely a place one simply cannot miss while in Slovenia.
We will finish the day by the seaside in the city of Portorož, where we’ll be spending the night. You will be able to take a swim in the sea, a stroll by the beach or relax in some bar.
DAY 2: In the morning we will say goodbye to the coastline by visiting Piran, the old city with rich architecture, cute, small alleys and amazing views. After discovering Pirans secret alleys, we will depart towards Bled. A city with astonishing landscape, known mostly for its lake and an island in the middle of it. Visitors can take a swim in the lake, take a boat ride to the church on the island or simply adore the view of the surrounding mountains with magnificent Bled Castle in the very near. If we’ll have enough time, we will also visit Vintgar gorge, a beautiful place with clear blue water in the middle of the forest.
