I have planned to visit Slovenia July 2016. Planning to spend 5 full days in Slovenia. Have distributed those precious days like below:
Day1:Ljubljana Day2:Ljubljana Day3:Day trip to Lake Bled Day4:Day trip to Piran or Kranj - Please suggest the most picturesque one ?
Day5: Day trip to Maribor or Ptuj - Please suggest the most picturesque one ?
This is a rough itinerary. Need your expertise suggestions to alter the itinerary to make it a best one:) If 2 days not at all required for Ljubljana then you can suggest alternatives as well!!
Thanks in advance :)
How difficult is the trail? Many steps? Is it possible to walk only part of the way?
My plan is to travel from Zagreb to Ljubljana in the morning then get the bus to Bled . I would like to visit Vintgar Gorge the same day and back to stay in the hostel in Bled.
How often of the bus from Bled lake to Vintgar Gorge ? Is it safe to walk there alone ?
The next day I'm thinking of staying in Ljubljana then try to go to Venice the day after but I'm not sure if travel from Bled or Ljubljana to Venice is better and cheaper and how to get there. ( I'm on a budget solo backpack )
Plesse help , Thanks in advance :)
I need to travel from Piran to Venice on 24th Sep , friday.

I need to travel from Piran (Slove to Venice on the 24th Sep 2015, Friday.
We are a Team of 5 adults and a 2 year infant.
I checked the ferry lines and none are available on that day.
I checked rail connections and did not find any that day.
What other solutions do I have ?
I need to reach venice that night since I am flying back the next day.
I arrive in Ljubjana airport next week and I have to meet my friend at the bus station to get a bus to Kranjska Gora. Is it easy to find the bus which takes you to the bus station from the airport and how much should I expect to pay for a return to and from KG?
My flight to Maribor lands at 23:05.
I haven't seen any buses running at that time so I'm going to need a taxi.
Does anyone know if taxis wait around outside, or do I need to book one in advance?
My husband and I are seniors and will be spending 8 days in Bled.
We'd appreciate information on day trips to see some must sees.
We like scenery and lakes. We'll have a car, but we intend to do
leisurely walks around Bled rather than go on a trip every day.
We'd also like to possibly drive to Croatia 1 day to Plitvice, so would
appreciate advice regarding that as well. (We do not eat in restaurants,
so not interested in restaurant advice)
I was in Bled at the end of May and stayed at house klasika. I purchased a really amazing childrens backpack on my way from the tourist center to house klasika. The store was on ground level, on the right side of the street before I got to the post office. It was stolen on the train home and I would really like to purchase another from the same store. Do you Know the store? Can you send me their information? It was a childrens backpack, pink, whimsical with a Victorian style cartoon on the front and amazing. Thank you for your help. I know this is a strange request, but it's the only thing i purchased for myself the whole vacation and Bled was my most favorite place we visited. I would love a reminder of it.
I'm interested in a recommendation for a lakeview apartment not a hotel, for 2 seniors,
near a walkway around the lake where we don't have to climb down a hill to
get to the lake.
Hi, is there any place in Koper, Slovenia, where we can swim with the dog? I mean some place without big stones at the edge of the sea. We are already in Koper. Many thanks. Jitka ;)
I'm looking for a pleasant place to stay our last night, 100 km or less from the Zagreb airport. The day before we'll be coming from the west side or Ljubljana and have to return the car in the early afternoon.
Maybe in this case I will have to use highways, but I don't now yet if in Slovenia or Croatia.
We'll drive around the north side of Slovenia the area of Logarska Dolina. I see on my old map that the roads cross corners of Austria. Of course I'll get updated info when we're there.
Years ago when we drove in Austria we had to pay for a vignette, which was valid for a whole year - even if we're in Austria only a day or two. Now we rent our car in Zagreb, and most of our driving is in Slovenia.
Is it the same now?
We're going to Slovenia for ten days, mostly in the mountains. In the past, in Slovenia and other countries, we found rooms in the afternoon – without reserving in advance.
In the last years I reserved in advance, and of course had to get there. Now I don't know how far we'll drive, or if the weather will be bad and we have to change direction.
On our earlier trip in September there was no problem finding rooms, even with three beds (we don't need that this time). But in July would it be more crowded? It's also fourteen years after our first trip.
I can always try to reserve one day ahead, probably people have cancellations.
We'll have nine days in Slovenia, including the drive from Zagreb and back. We've visited Slovenia before, seen the famous caves and castles, and drove all the Soca valley, which I would like to see again.
From the maps it looks interesting to drive north to Austria through the high mountains. As short as possible tunnels, not main roads with fast traffic - but not deserted. Some places where we can stay overnight. Back and forth the same road, or a different one.
Can we depend on weather reports for a few days? We don't want to drive in fog. The trip is in the middle of July.
We'll have more than a week to drive in Slovenia, in the middle of July. We've been in Slovenia before and visited Bled and lake Bled, Ljubliana, the big caves, the seashore, the whole Soca valley. All places are worth visiting again, but this time I'm looking specially for roads that go between high mountains in the direction of Austria. Decent roads, maybe views of snow, somewhere to stay overnight. No long tunnels, some paper and internet maps ignore the tunnels.
I marked some such route on my old map, but I haven't been there, it just looked nice on the map.
What the best way to get from venice to ljubljana by train mainly to keep down extra cost because I've already got a interrail pass. I've seen a few forums on this journey but they're all really old so didn't know if things have changed, train lines changed or updated because most of them say take the bus but my pass doesnt cover that
Where in Slovenia are the best regions to eat fish (sea or fresh water)?
Can we go from Bled to Vintgar Gorge by Public Transport? I found a taxi at the price of 14eur each way, is it worth it? we will be 4 adults.
we are coming soon to lake bled can you advise what we should to wear for during the day / night. And also the best things to see
In 2004, there was a small train which ran from Maribor into the mountains to Prevalje. I looked on Slovane railways website, but there seem to be no services. Has the entire line been discontinued?
Hi, I am planning a week in Slovenia later this month. I am planning to visit Ljubljana, Postojna Caves and Predjama Castle, Lake Bled, Vintgar Gorge, Bohinj and Mt Vogel. We re ending our holiday in Venice, since we're using Treviso Airport.
Fitting all these places in one week I still ended up with a free day. Could anyone kindly suggest a day trip from Lake Bled please? Note that we will be using public transport. I dont mind booking a day excursion with an agent as well. Any suggestions are welcome.
my son and partner are travelling in Kranjska Gora and are not use to the rich food is there anywhere that sells fresh fruit and vegetables, like markets or organic green grocer or awesome restaurant (supermarket can be a little hit and miss)
Hello I'll be in Solvenia for 2 days. I will visit Ljubljana the first day. I've made a lot of research and I think it is possible, on the second day: to visit Bled Lake, Castle and Skocjan and back to Ljubljana in the evening.
I dont want to rent a car, so this is not an option and I will not change my mind about that. I have not found any tour company offering such a journey. Either they offer Lipica + Skockjan OR Bled + Postjana.
I think it is feasible on one day, but not using public transportation. Any ideas? Can you recommend me private transportation at a reasonnable cost? Thanks !!!
Anybody help me?
I wanna visit Ljubljana, what should I definitely visit? I will probably stay for 2 or 3 days
Would it be possible to take our bicycles on the historic tram that runs from Trieste Piazza Oberdan tram terminus to Villa Opicina tram terminus?
