Ljubljana, Slovenia’s capital, is one of the friendliest cities I ever visited. Unlike other European capitals, Ljubljana is small and easy to walk, which makes it easy to explore in one day. Although there are many attractive places to visit in Ljubljana, they are all within walking distance from each other.
Lake Bled is arguably Slovenia‘s most famous destination. Perhaps even more famous than the country’s capital, beautiful Ljubljana. Given its proximity to the capital, Lake Bled is best explored as a day trip from Ljubljana.
Maribor was the first stop on our Balkan road trip itinerary. Although it is Slovenia’s second largest city, Maribor can easily be explored on a day trip from Ljubljana. One day in Maribor will give you plenty of time to explore the city’s attractions. You can also stop to admire the romantic river bank.
