Visit Croatia and Slovenia as you take the scenic route from lively Dubrovnik to pristine Bled. Experience both history and nature at their best - from Roman ruins and walled cities to unspoilt beaches and rugged islands just off the Adriatic coast. Quaff wine with locals in Korcula, delve into the ancient history of Split, hike through the Rab hinterland and be swept up in the magic of Bled.

Bury St Edmunds Abbey ruins, Suffolk, England, UK. In 1214, the Archbishop of Canterbury and 25 barons swore at the high altar that they would make King John sign the charter that would become Magna Carta. He signed it (under protest) at Runnymede the following year. The top and bottom photos show the high altar where the barons made their vow; the middle engravings mark the spot and list the 25 barons. The town’s motto is “Shrine of a King; Cradle of the Law”.
