Making best of 4/5 days in Slovenia

Jump to last reply

This is our first trip to Slovenia and so it would be great if you could help us with your suggestions. We have 5 days with us which we are planning to spend as follows:

Day 1: Leave Budapest in the morning and go to Lake Balaton in Hungary. Stay at Lake Balaton
Day 2: Ljubljana?
Day 3: Soca Valley/ Lake Bled (we want to cover Bled, vintegar gorge, Bohinj, Triglav National Park, Cable car to Vogel)
Day 4: Lake Bled ?
Day 5: Piran?

We have following questions:
1. Is lake balaton a must visit place. I mean if we are visiting lake bled and bohinj, should we still visit balaton?
2. We will be using public transport but we would like to cover as much as possible. For eg: We would also like to visit Soca Valley, Tolmin, Mountain pass Vrsic, Maribor or Ptuj. Is this feasible or are we targeting too much?
3. Since we will be coming to Slovenia from Budapest (by train), what should be our route? I mean should we first go to Maribor and then to Bled?
4.Should we keep 1 full day for Ljubljana?

It would be very useful if someone could give us a 4/5 days that will cover best of Slovenia.
