We offer three options for post-conference excursions on 14 September; two full-day trips to the south-western region of Slovenia, and a shorter half-day guided tour around Ljubljana.

  1. Karst Cave and Coast (full day)

A bus trip from Ljubljana to Slovenian Karst and the Adriatic coast which will visit Karst Cave Škocjanske jame. After the visit to the cave, the trip will continue to the Sečovlje saltpans and thence to the seaside town of Piran where we will join the group on the Stud Farm trip. Both groups will conclude the day together with a local wine tasting in a wine cellar before returning to Ljubljana in the evening.

  1. Stud farm and Coast (full day)

  1. Ljubljana City Tour (half day)

A two hour tour of Ljubljana City. The tour will take delegates through the historical city centre, whose unique architecture is the legacy of the Baroque and Art Nouveau periods and, most notably, the work of the famous 20th-century architect Jože Plečnik; whose work is now listed on the UNESCO World Heritage list. From the city centre we will go to Ljubljana Castle which has sat on a hill overlooking the city for about 900 years. On this tour, delegates will learn about the city’s and castle’s history and enjoy the beautiful city views afforded from the castle’s ramparts.
