suggestions on Slovenia trip

Jump to last reply

Next month (May) end I will be traveling to Portoroz to attend a conference for 5 days. I was thinking of coming 3 days earlier to visit some other places in Slovenia. After a quick search, I found Bled, Julian Alps and Triglav National Park interesting. My current tentative schedule is as follows

May 28 -- arrive in Ljubljana and go around the city
May 29 -- Bled + Julian Alps (is this possible?)
May 30 -- TNP and start to Portoroz. Have to reach by late evening at the latest.
Next 5 days -- conference + can go around Portoroz in the evenings

Does this look feasible? Are there any better alternatives or places that I should see? I like visiting scenic places as against to art museums. I skipped the caves since I already visited something similar (Mammoth caves). Please take into consideration that I need to take the public transport. I am used to driving only the automatic transmission cars and I would rather avoid trying out car driving in a new place.

Another question I have is about the traveling route I should take. For the above schedule, is it better to land in Ljubljana airport (which is why I mentioned that city on the first day)? I will be starting from Dayton, Ohio (US) and it is very costly as well as time consuming (average flight time seems to be 16-20 hrs) to come to Ljubljana airport. Do you suggest coming to some other airport (if so, what?) and then taking trains to get to the above places?

The last question is about food. I am a vegetarian. Do you recommend any specific veggie dishes that I should be trying out while I am in Slovenia?

All suggestions/tips would be very helpful. Thank you in advance.
