Trip Report Slovenia: If I were to design a country, it would look a lot like Slovenia

Jump to last reply

I spent almost a week in Slovenia, near the beginning of a 28 day trip across Europe in July that included Italy and the Benelux countries. The trip started with two days in Iceland. Photos are at

As the plane approached Ljubljana airport it was so pretty – all green hills and valleys and villages and the Alps in the distance. I had just come from Iceland - which may be unique but Slovenia is so lovely. And the temperature was perfect and I had the Alps to look at while I waited for the bus to the city center – only 4€, but there’s only one per hour. There were literally about five people on the bus. And it took 45 minutes. But it’s pretty landscape – green, with small mountains in the distance and tiny villages all with the typical church steeples.

The Slamic B&B is very nice. Kersnikova 1 Ljubljana ( €65) It’s ten minutes from the pedestrianized old town but not a bad walk and while the street it’s on is pretty boring the hotel itself is very modern and nice. The room is very large, spotless, and has everything- AC works great and is adjustable, TV with lots of stations with old American TV shows, mini bar, Wi-fi, fine bathroom, breakfast very good selection of breads and spreads, meats, cheese, yogurt, OJ, coffee, etc. There’s an outside seating area. There was a Jazz concert one evening that hotel guests could attend for free.

I absolutely LOVED Slovenia – it does really have a lot to offer for such a little country – charming old capital on a lovely river with great architecture, a hill top castle, and one of the best ‘feelings/vibes’ of any city I can think of. (You just have to ignore the communist era ugly buildings on the outskirts). And it’s got the Alps and the prettiest alpine lake with hill top castle and church on a tiny island in the middle. And then there are adorable little towns like Piran jutting out into the Adriatic. If I were going to design a country it would look a lot like Slovenia. (Only I’d put in a decent train line.)
