Hey Barbara! Škofja Loka is a great place to visit and definitely worth spending a day or a couple in its region. It is very close to Ljubljana as well as nicely connected to the rest of the country. It is a town very rich in history and culture, with many sights to visit, depending on what you are into - there is a great castle, some museums, and galleries and its old center is very picturesque itself. It is surrounded by nature, and there are numerous options for easy family hikes, some starting in the very center of the town. You can also cycle and do other activities, for example, a family adrenaline park nearby, visit a cave or do a bike trip. Škofja Loka is at the entrance of two valleys, Poljanska and Selska, each worth a visit on its own - they are both full of beautiful nature and historic and natural sights. There are unfortunately not so many accommodation options to choose from, at least in the very center of Škofja Loka, but you can find some really nice tourist farm stays and small family hotels very close by, especially Poljanska valley. If you choose to stay in Škofja Loka and visit Ljubljana, you can get there in appx. 30 minutes by car and even faster and more easily by train.
