7 Days In Slovenia - Itinerary Comments

Hi guys, will be flying in from Turkey for a 7 day (technically 6.5 days solo trip in May. In 7 days, I thought i might be able to see more but eventually after research, I realised, even though Slovenia is a small country, 7 days is still not alot so I have narrowed my itinerary to this, especially I am not too confident driving on the other side of the road and will be depending on public transports. Experts who knows the country better, please advise on whether travelling distances are realistic and whether the towns I choose to be based is fine or there are better options. Also, my priority to this trip is because I am so attracted the beauty of Bled, Vintar Gorge and Bohinj and also the 2 famous caves, in short, I love natural beauty like mountains, waterfalls, walks etc.... I do also appreciate some of the old town charm which I think I should find in the capital, if there are better options please let me know! However I am also not the fittest of persons, so strenuous walks with too steep a climb is out for me. My proposed itinerary:

10 May - reach Ljubana in the morning - travel to Bled immediately, settle down and spend the afternoon going to Vintar Gorge and relax at Lake Bled....

11 - May - base in Bled, travel to Bohinj for a day out there.

12 May - travel to Postojana and base there. Afternoon, explore postojana cave

13 May - Based in Postojana, visit Skocjan caves on a day trip.

14 May - travel to Ljubana, explore Capital

15 May - Still Ljubana

16 May - fly back to Istanbul.

Appreciate all information and suggestions and advice! Thanks!

A base in Postojna is unfortunately not a very good idea. The towns is rather boring and I don't think that there is a way to get from Postojna to Skocjan caves by public transport.

Hi ApartmentValant, thanks! I will take my time to read through them!

Hi MarjanJerman, is that so? I would have thought they are so near, they would have a train or bus going there! If so, if I want to see the 2 caves and Predjma Castle, where should I base myself? The reason I base myself in Postojna is so I do not have to rush myself too much from elsewhere on a day trip. Thanks!

It's rather complicated to get to Skocjan caves, see:

park-skocjanske-jame.si/eng/skocjan-caves-pa…

Also, getting to Predjama castle may be difficult. There are no taxis in Postojna. It is possible that some of the tourist offices in Postojna offer trips starting at the Postojna cave.

Hi, if you wish to stay in Postojna for one night and visit the Postojna Cave and Predjama Castle and the next day visit the Škocjan caves then staying in Postojna is a good idea. You will have a nice full day experience in Postojna visiting the caves and the castle and then spend the overnight there. I recommend the Proteus apartments (see booking.com – excellent ranking) with excellent restaurant. It is only 500 m distant from the cave entrance. There is a taxi from Postojna Caves to Predjama Castle. His number is 031 777 974. The distance between Postojna Caves and Predjama castle is only 9 km. Rgds.
