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 an 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: 6 th and 7 th of July.
DAY 1: Our first destination will be Ljubljana – the capital of Slovenia. We will explore the city centre
together and later enjoy the view from the castle on the hill. Of course, you will have some free time
to explore Ljubljana on your own.
Second after Ljubljana is Predjama castle, which is situated in the middle of a towering cliff. Our next
stop is the Škocjan cave system. The cave system is part of UNESCO’s list of natural and cultural
world heritage sites.
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.
