What to do in Ljubljana, Slovenia...besides tango?

Lonely Planet calls Slovenia "the undiscovered pearl of Europe".
It offers a great variety of lanscapes, from the seaside, high Alps, to Panonian lowlands. Very special places are Lake Bled, the Postojna caves (both one hour out of Ljubljana), termal resorts.
Ljubljana - Bled (Alpine lake): 57 km
