Trip Report Sharing photos from a wonderful trip to Slovenia

Jump to last reply

Just a brief review of my itinerary and to share some of my better photos from my recent trip to Slovenia. As I drove throughout the Slovenian countryside I continually asked myself how it was possible for a country to be so beautiful! I was in Slovenia from 9/11 to 9/19, 2012.

The best way to view the photos is after the slideshow page opens, in the lower right hand area of the screen is an icon to expand to Full Screen.

Day 1 – Venice to Bovec and a night in Bovec

Day 2 – Through Vrsic Pass to Lake Bled. Unfortunately it rained the entire day so the trip through Vrsic Pass didn’t allow for any photography. While I tried a few photos at Lake Bled, it was raining and the light conditions were terrible

Day 3 – Another day in Lake Bled and another day of steady rain.

Day 4 – Finally the rain had ended. Lake Bled to Ljubljana with stops at Lake Bohinj and Skofja Loka. Unfortunately I didn’t get to Skofja Loka until later in the day so I didn’t get the opportunity to explore it to the extent I had hoped

Day 5 – Explore Ljubljana

Day 6 – Day trip to Logar Valley doing a loop that took me through Jezersko, briefly into Austria, the Logar Valley, Kamnik and back to Ljubljana

This is the route in case anybody wants to replicate it. Beautiful drive!

Day 7 – Day trip to the Postojna caves, Predjama Castle and Sneznik Castle

Day 8 – I had a free day set aside for today in case I wanted to return to any previous viewed locations due to weather and if not, a free day to explore somewhere else. Since I had miserable weather my 2 days at Lake Bled I decided to return today for the photo opps and for Vintgar Gorge

Thanks to everyone who helped me organize this fantastic trip!
