    Ljubljana

    by solopes Updated Jan 1, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    My sons had already visited Slovenia, which they referred as "the most beautiful" of the several countries they visited. Ljubljana was special, and, travelling to Trieste area I had to plan this visit.
    I was perfect! Ljubljana is a nice city, easy to visit in the short time that we had. The many thing that I registered are being related in my Ljubljana page.

    Lake Bohinj

    by solopes Updated Jan 1, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Rivalling with Bled, this beautiful lake is more natural, and less explored. The many sensations collected in the area are related in several pages - Ribcev Laz were we slept, but also Bohinjska Bistrica, and the surprising Sredja vas

    Villages

    by solopes Updated Jan 1, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Right upon our arrival we were caught by the beauty of the villages in Triglav area. Cesnica, Ribcev Laz, and mainly Srednia Vas were a full surprise. We had our first glimpse by night, when the GPS failed and we lost ourselves near the hotel, but we decided to return by daylight to confirm the good sensation in the dark. Plenty of flowers everywhere, and... Fernanda taking the camera from my hands and click...click...click...

    Come on... we still have Slovenia to see!

    Skofia Loka

    by solopes Updated Jan 1, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A small city with lots of personality. The centre of the Skofia Loka, though here and there demanding maintenance, is well preserved, and evidences well the past. Short distances make the visit easy and without any boring area.

    Portoroz

    by solopes Updated Jan 1, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I had great expectations about this beach, mentioned as the best of Slovenia.
    Well, I was somewhat disappointed - the beach is mainly artificial. Not ugly, not bad, well equiped, good restaurants, but...
    I had a quick bath on a tapestry of algae, a good dinner, and a good night sleep in Portoroz. It was all.

    Koper

    by solopes Updated Jan 1, 2014

    Forced to choose between Koper and Piran, due to time limitations, I preferred Piran. However, I still got some minutes to a very quick and superficial passage in Koper, that confirming that I made the right choice, allowed a few notes justifying a small page.

    Piran

    by solopes Updated Jan 1, 2014

    Occupying the tip of a peninsula, this small city keeps the charm of the ancient days, with narrow streets flanked by old houses and monuments. Without a real beach, Piran is surrounded by several artificial bathing areas, rounding a small marina. Nice place that I describe in my Piran page.

    Kranj

    by solopes Updated Jan 1, 2014

    I skipped Kranj. Having read about the area, and only with time to visit one of two (Kranj and Skofja Loka) I choose the second. I know that Kranj is a great industrial city, and its center is nice, but... maybe next time.

    Predjama castle

    by solopes Updated Jan 1, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Close to Postojna, this "impossible" castle is located at the entrance of a wide cave. Protected by the mountain, it was initially built in the 13Th century, and served as shelter to several noble families until being destroyed in 1511. A second building didn't resist an earthquake, and the actual was built in 1570 in Renaissance style.
    It is served by a complex of caves, linking to Postojna, and with lots of history concerning supplying the castle under sieges.

    Skocjan caves

    by solopes Updated Jan 1, 2014

    UNESCO World Heritage, this caves are a awesome travel in one underground canyon. They impress for its size, with the river running dozens of meters below you, as you walk in a narrow path carved in the rocky flanks of the river, with the ceiling of the cave also far from your head.

    It's dark, with the artificial illumination strategically displayed and dimmed, and the few usual formation (stalactites and stalagmites) not impressive. As we walk feeling smaller and helpless step after step, the light at the end of the tunnel, in the "dolina", acquires a sense of hope returning to human dimension and life.

    The "dolina" is a wide hole, with a few small waterfalls and... green... splendid green, "pushing" you up to the surface and daylight. More than seeing, Skocjan caves are something to feel, and only feeling it you may clearly understand my words

    Postojna

    by solopes Updated Jan 1, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    World Heritage to UNESCO, this caves were one of our top priorities and they confirmed the expectations. Postojna impresses for its grandiosity, and the long ride in a small train a freezing but wonderful sensation. Pictures are forbidden, but I think that only a 123 years old Spanish lady did respect the polite and discreet recommendations.

    Bled

    by solopes Updated Jan 1, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It's the main attraction in Slovenia, and tourism dominates everything.

    Too much, in my opinion - the attractions are what we expected by the pictures, but seeing them not too easy due to parking restrictions. However, Bled is, no doubt, a "Must see".

    Lasko - the city Castle

    by croisbeauty Updated Oct 20, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Actually, I know nothing about this castle which is situated right in the centre of the town of Lasko, so I am asking for help from the friendjy Slovenian VTers.
    According to the structure and decorations, it might be built in the late Baroque style. It is huge cube-shaped building with spacious courtyard in the middle of it.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Medieval castle situated on the top of the hill near small town of Podcetrtek. By the time I was there the castle was closed for the public visiting. It has to be renovated. Podcetrtek is termal resort close to the border with Croatia and it offers fine and inexpensive food in a local very good restaurants.
