      Quick inexpensive way from Venice airport to Koper??

      Slovenia Jul 24, 2016 at 8:58 AM

      I only saw trains right now, when I did look at itinerary it wasn't clear on the switch in Trieste and it's only a 15 min before boarding the next. It notes about ground transport, is the station not the same? No direct buses to Koper? Do kids pay on public buses and trains? Thanks!

      Hotels at reasonable prices?

      Slovenia Jul 23, 2016 at 10:32 AM

      I was very excited and encouraged to go to Slovenia this year after a few discussions with some European friends who claimed prices even in August are cheaper than elsewhere, even last minute. I thought it was logical as Italy can be pricey, but when I started looking Slovenia seemed just as pricey with less options . I checked Airbnb and as usual either they are sold out or limit visitors to 2 people per room. I checked booking site , Expedia, trivago you name it. Is there something I am missing? It would be from July 29 to first week of August at different places. I even tried the thermals as I find them interesting but when you click to book they have a limit that you need to stay minimum 3 nights or 5, we don't have that time as we want to visit elsewhere. We have 2 minimum. The places we are interested is Bled, Capital city, Vintgar gorge, soca river, caves. We will skip the east side this time.

      WE do have a CAR and we don't mind travelling up to 30 minutes if it gives us a better room.

      Thank you.

      Where is entrance to kayak On Soca?

      Slovenia Jul 23, 2016 at 10:18 AM

      Hi all.

      We would want to have some information on Soca river. First, we have two small children none swim, 6 and 7 years old, neither I. We would like to take advantage of this beauty though the river looks calm, is there a place we come to enter and rent, swim, easy picturesque hikes besides Vintgar gorge, other activities for kids? Is it cool near/ in lake at this time of year? Thank you!

    • Getting from the airport to Ljubljana

      Ljubljana Jul 10, 2016 at 5:56 AM

      Dear VT friends in Ljubljana

      I am coming to Slovenia for the first time at the end of the month. I'm staying a few days then flying out for a day then coming back. So I will have four trips to the airport and as my hotel (the Radisson Blu Plaza on Bratislavska Cesta) is offering me a transfer at €25 I wanted to see if there was a cheaper option by bus and tram.

      My second question is about how the Ljubljana bus/Tram system works and if you pay the driver or by a bus card in advance.

      All help very gratefully received!

      We like scenery and lakes. We'll have a car, but we intend to do

      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)

    • childrens store with super cute backpacks?

      Bled Jul 25, 2015 at 10:13 PM

      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.

      North Slovenia, crossing to Austria

      Slovenia Jun 24, 2015 at 3:33 AM

      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?
