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?


Skiing in Slovenia - budget accommodation recommendation

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


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 ?


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…


Family trip


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)
Ljubljana-1 day
Bled-1 day
Lake Bohnij-2days?

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…


Triglav National Park Trails & Huts

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…
