Place to stay in Ljubljana

I will be there for one night in September, and want to maximize. Good place with a view perhaps, but not too expensive, nor a hostel necessarily, as I will stay in plenty of those. Any help is much appreciated!

Most scenic single hike in Triglav National Park?

If you were to suggest the most scenic and dramatic hike in the Triglav National Park what trail would you suggest? We are hoping to see high alpine peaks, mountain meadows and possibly some huts for refreshments. Will be traveling with kids as well.

We currently have "The Julian Alps of Slovenia - Mountain Walks and Short Treks" but are hoping to have some help in narrowing down our options.

Thanks in advance!

Ljubljana with kids yes or no?

Is a visit to Ljubljana worth it when traveling with 2 kids ages 7 and 9? We are considering going straight to Lake Bled and the Skocjan caves and skipping Ljubljana. What do you think?

Lake Bled /Slovenia vs. Montenegro/Sarajevo

We are planning our Croatia trip and face a couple of itinerary choices. We can either spend 2 days in the beginning of our trip going to Slovenia or 2 days at the end of the trip doing day trips from Dubrovnik to Montenegro or Mostar/Sarajevo. Which would you do and why?

Recommendations for 2 days in Ljubliana, and trains from Venice

Hi all
Have checked online but can't find very up-to-date info (not just being lazy here!) so:
I'm landing in Venice (Treviso) on 3rd April, and want to head straight to Ljubliana. Do you know if it's still possible by train via Venice Santa Lucia station then Trieste, and if services will be disrupted by Easter?

Then in Ljubliana, I'm looking for any new/updated recommendations of things to do. My interests are flea markets/ antiques/junk/vintage tat; folk art; crypts, pretty graveyards and…

Skocjan or Postojna (& Transpo ?)

We have very limited time in Slovenia and I'm trying to figure out which cave is best for a visit. I'm definitely leaning towards Skocjan based on pictures alone. But I'm curious as to why I keep reading that Postojna is the most visited.
I would very much appreciate opinions and recommendations.

Also, we will be traveling from Croatia and plan on spending the night in either Ljubljana or Lake Bled. We will more than likely rent a car, unless there is easy transportation from the caves…

Julian hikes, Soca River fishing, beekeeping museum?

I am looking for some advice on plans I have for visiting Slovenia this September. I’ll have a rental car, and after hiking in the Val Gardena area of the Italian Dolomites, I plan to drive to Slovenia via route 111 and SS54 toward Bovec or Triglav. I have 5 days in Slovenia before I need to return to Venice, and I’d like to do some day hikes in the Julian Alps, perhaps a day of trout fishing on the Soca River, a visit to Bled and the beekeeping museum in Radovljica, and finally an overnight…

Venice - Bled - Budapest

Hi Fellow Travelers

I'm trying to find the quickest way to get from Venice to Bled. From Bled we'll be continuing onto Budapest (haven't even started researching this leg yet!) so this is a one way leg.

From my research it seems that driving will be the fastest at less than 3 hours however, it seems that hiring a car is difficult (happy to receive advice about this) so looking at public transport.

I've found that there is a transfer service but it's 5.5 hours

Quick day trip from Ljubljana -> Austria (anywhere) -> Bled ?

Hello!

I will be in Slovenia for a conference next week, and I have a package to mail to Austria. I understand it would be fastest for me to send it from an Austrian post office (so it wouldn't need to be held up at customs, etc.).

I arrive at the Ljubljana airport at 10:30 a.m. on a weekday; is there a way for me to get from there to any town in Austria with a post office on that same day, and then return to Bled that night?

I checked the train schedules, and it looks like there's a train…
