Option 2:

Postojna cave, vivarium proteus, the butterflies of the world, stud  farm  Lipica and Slovenian coast

Postojna Cave is the best-known cave in the world. It is also the greatest tourist attraction in Slovenia and one of the world's largest karst monuments. Many books and other contributions have been written about Postojna Cave; speaking of tourist guides regarding the cave itself, almost 100 have been produced over 200 years.  For 140 years, the Postojna Cave, as the only cave in the world, offers a unique and adventurous ride with a special train, which will take you into the cave, under spectacular underground arches, which are embellished with chandelier look-alike stalactites, through a beautiful subterranean world full of playful limestone sculptures.

World of the Lipizzaner horses. The tour is a unique experience of Lipica. Learn about the history of the Stud farm from its foundation till today. Visit the historic center with its famous "yard", the mansion and Velbanca - the oldest stable in Lipica, peep into the church of Saint Anthony of Padua and find out everything you want to know about Lipica, Lipizzaner horses and the Karst in an interactive museum - Lipikum. But the most impressive image for the most of the visitors will be the image of mares with foals at pasture.

Portorož ( literally "Port of Roses"), is an Adriatic - Mediterranean coastal settlement in the Municipality of Piran in southwestern Slovenia. Its modern development began in the late 19th century with appearance of first health resorts. In the early 20th century it became one of the grandest seaside resorts in Europe, along with Abbazia, Lido and Grado, then as part of the Austrian Littoral.[2] It is now one of the country's major tourist areas.[3] Located in the centre is the Hotel Palace, once one of the most important resorts for the Austro-Hungarian monarchy, and currently one of the finest hotels between Venice and Dubrovnik.[4]

Piran is probably the most beautiful of Slovenia's coastal towns, perched on a tiny piece of land jutting into the sea. It feels more like an Italian coastal town, without all the Italian tourists, and for good reason: Piran was part of the Venetian empire from the late 13th century to the end of the 18th century and then part of Italy from 1918 till 1947.
