A Friendly Good Day
Me and my family want to plan a ski holiday to Slovenia over new year 15/16. We are on a very tight budget with small children. Skiing abilities intermediate to good.
Where would you preferably go and what accommodation should we try.
Thanks in advance
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…
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.
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…
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
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 checked the train schedules, and it looks like there's a train…
I'm looking for some feedback on my itinerary for a week in Slovenia.
We're planning to go with our son who will be 15 months in June.
We're not sure whether to fly in and out of Trieste or Ljubljana and visit the following
Piran 2 days
Skocjan caves (one does the tour while other stays with baby then swap)
Bovec sounds lovely but as we'll have a little one with us we won't be able to do any white water rafting.
Do we have the balance right? I…
We are planning a trip to Slovenia in August, and are hoping to do some day hikes, possibly with an overnight hut stay, in the Triglav National Park. We're traveling with our three kids (12, 10, & 6). We were thinking of getting into the mountains from the Vogel Tram, and then hiking out from there. We would enjoy hearing if there are specific trails to take, huts to visit, etc. Also, if there are any English guidebooks that focus on hiking in the area the information would be much…
