LJUBLJANA CASTLE – The medieval Ljubljana Castle has served to many different purposes in the past – it was first a fortress, then residence to the provincial governor, a barracks and even a prison.

In newer times, we can add to its many roles that of a major tourist attraction and city landmark.

The exterior shell, as it now appears, is predominantly from the mid-16th and the following century.

The extensive renovation over the more recent years, which is now being concluded, has provided this splendid location with modern meeting and banqueting facilities, thus transforming it into a unique venue for smaller business meetings and, especially, social functions.

The Castle features seven indoor function spaces, which can, for standing receptions, welcome a maximum of 400 guests in the largest one, while the spacious courtyard offers the capacity for up to 800 guests.

The latest novelty in 2009 are two function rooms, Friedrick 1 and 2, adjacent to the Palatium and the Estates Hall. www.ljubljanacastle.si

BLED CASTLE – According to written sources, Bled castle is the oldest castle in Slovenia, first mentioned in a 1011 donation deed as castellum Veldes.

Perched atop a steep cliff rising 130 metres above the glacial Lake Bled is a symbol of Bled and Slovenia – Bled Castle.

The image of the castle forming a dramatic backdrop to the romantic island and the church on it has earned the resort worldwide recognition through the centuries.

Castle terraces offer spectacular views of the lake and the island, down the Dežela area with Lesce and Radovljica and over to the mountain ranges of the Karavanke and the Julian Alps.

Owing to its strategic geographic location, Bled has always been an important venue of high – level political and other official meetings. Its castle has been visited by a number of high-ranking statesmen who enjoyed the breathtakingly beautiful views of the surrounding nature.
