Skofja Loka is Slovenia’s oldest and most carefully preserved medieval town, with a central castle and a great set of old town walls. This is a great place to explore and spend some time – it is about 35 minutes drive from Bled. The old town centre is composed of an upper square called Mestni Trg, and the lower, Spodnji Trg, both of which are dominated by the Skofja Loka Castle, which is well worth a visit has a beautiful view over the old town the Slovenian Alps and the surrounding forests and field. The climb up to the castle is very manageable by all with railing and gradual up climb. The castle museum is very well assembled and gives a full and diverse overview of Slovenian history, culture, art, and natural history. Behind the town walls, but not far from the town centre, you can also visit some nice natural attractions including the Lubniska Jama cave system and Mary’s Chasm.
