Could you tell us about your experiences exploring the city of Ljubljana during your trip to Slovenia?


From the moment we arrived in Ljubljana, I could sense the city's vibrant energy. The colorful buildings and bustling pedestrian streets beckoned us to explore its hidden charms.


Absolutely! The Triple Bridge was a sight to behold. We wandered along the banks of the Ljubljanica River, immersing ourselves in the lively atmosphere and stopping at quaint cafes for a cup of aromatic coffee.

What were some of the highlights of Journey Through Slovenia and your visit to Bled?

Bled was indeed a dream destination. We were captivated by the stunning Bled Lake and its iconic island with the church. We also took a leisurely boat ride and hiked up to Bled Castle, where we were rewarded with breathtaking views of the surrounding landscapes.

Bled was like stepping into a fairytale.

The emerald-green lake surrounded by the Julian Alps was simply breathtaking. And the pletna boat ride to the island was an unforgettable experience. We climbed the steps of the Church of the Assumption and admired the panoramic views from the bell tower.


Oh, and how can I forget the delicious Bled cream cake :)

Could you share your experience visiting Postojna and its famous caves?


"The Postojna Cave was a fascinating adventure. We embarked on an underground journey, exploring the breathtaking stalactite formations and vast chambers.

The train ride through the cave was truly memorable, and we learned so much about the geological wonders of the region.


Descending into the depths of Postojna Cave was like entering another world. The stalactites and stalagmites created mesmerizing formations that left us in awe. I couldn't believe the vastness of the cave system. Riding the small train through the labyrinth and exploring the chambers was an adventure we'll always cherish. And the Predjama Castle perched on a cliff was like something out of a medieval tale.

Javier, how was your time in the coastal town of Piran in your Journey Through Slovenia?

"Piran stole our hearts with its picturesque streets and Venetian architecture. We spent our days strolling along the charming waterfront, indulging in delicious seafood, and soaking up the Mediterranean vibes.

The narrow streets and Venetian architecture created a romantic ambience. Absolutely, and the view from the Venetian Walls was breathtaking. We spent hours wandering through the picturesque alleyways and indulging in fresh seafood delights at local restaurants.

Maria, what were the most memorable aspects of your trip to Slovenia that you would recommend to other travellers?

"We highly recommend exploring Slovenia's natural beauty. The warmth and hospitality of the Slovenian people made our journey even more special.

Don't miss the chance to experience the rich history, delicious cuisine, and incredible landscapes this country has to offer."

Do you have Insights and Recommendations for others who want to try like you, the journey through Slovenia?


While language barriers occasionally posed challenges, we found that locals appreciated our efforts to communicate in basic Slovenian phrases. It's worth learning a few keywords and phrases before your trip.


Planning ahead and allowing enough time for each destination is essential. Ljubljana's guided tours offer fascinating insights into its history and culture, and don't miss the chance to rent a rowboat in Bled and explore the lake at your own pace.


When visiting Postojna, try to book an early morning or late afternoon tour to enjoy the cave's wonders without the crowds. And in Piran, take your time to savor the relaxed coastal vibe and explore the hidden gems along the coastline.
