Slovenia

Ljubljana – 4 nights

Getting there:

We flew into the Ljubljana airport which is only 25 minute shuttle ride from the center; there are several shuttle services waiting outside of the airport that can take you to Ljubljana (9 euro) or Lake Bled (another popular spot in Slovenia). Being that Slovenia is a small country you are able to hire a car and drive across/all over it in a few days :).

All trains come through Ljubljana as well from bordering countries such as Croatia/Hungary/Italy/Austria etc.

Accommodation:

We stayed in Hostel 24 located right in Ljubljana. See link: http://www.hostelworld.com/hosteldetails.php/Hostel-24/Ljubljana/62848?dateFrom=2017-05-02&dateTo=2017-05-05&number_of_guests=2&sc_pos=1

Things to do:

– Hire a car (45 euro/day) and drive to the coastal town of Piran – highly recommend it is incredibly beautiful and warm!

– Hire a car and visit the Alps (Vogel ski resort)

– Visit Lake Bled and walk around it and visit the castle

– Ride the city bikes to Tivoli park & picnic

-Walk across the bridges in Ljubljana and watch sunset from the castle

What I wish I knew/did:

There are buses that go to Piran/Lake Bled/Julian Alps from Ljubljana main center but I recommend hiring a car as it is easy to do and gives you the freedom to stop wherever. From Piran – it is only another half an hour drive through the Slovenian/Italian border to the town of Trieste.

We did not go to the caves as it was very touristy and busy but apparently are the oldest in Europe!

Overall Recommendations:

Hire a car and get off the beaten track! There are tons of coastal towns along the Dalmatian coast I would’ve loved to check out. Slovenia’s landscape is so diverse with the mountains (cold climate) and coastal towns (sunny & hot).
