Hi I will go to Slovenia in a month time. Can anyone help me with what are the most popular places for tourists?
well, this site isn't exactly short and sweet, but it's helpful:
i will be in slovenia in two months time so let me know how your trip goes and if you have any suggestions of what to see and where to stay. good luck!
Hi Laura (and Steph)
I only spent a few days in Slovenia but it was a beautiful country from what I could see. Ljubliana (or however you spell the capital city) is a pretty city and compact so you can walk around it, nice restaurants alongside the river and good views from the castle. We stayed at Hostel Celica which is a converted prison so makes for some very interesting rooms - they still have bars on the windows and local artists have come in to decorate.
Lake Bled is a good day trip from Ljubliana or I think it would make a good base for walks in the mountains. The lake is postcard stunning and you can swim, hire a boat, walk etc.
Have a great trip!
Ljubljana is a bit boring, but i stayed in the Hostel Celica and drank some cheap beer with other backpackers which made it a worthy stop. I went out the Lake Bled after for some canyoning, rafting, biking... but it rained nearly the entire time! I will head back there because it is a beautiful area with good food and very nice people. Book slightly in advance though, because there is only one hostel with 8 beds.. i think
Lake Bohinj is also good, i did a little hike up mt sija there and was able to see italy from the top, that was cool... lots of places to see and lots of things to do, i will go back
