Long Weekend in Slovenia


I live in Sofia, Bulgaria and am looking for a travel destination for the long weekend starting on the afternoon of 31 January and ending of 04 February. I want to visit Ljubljana, Bled, and Kranj. Flights I have found are about 450 Euro, which is a bit expensive for a long weekend.

Is there an easier way to get from Sofia to Ljubljana and back in this time frame and allows for some time to explore Bled, Kranj, and a little but of Ljubljana?

Thanks for your time.

Unfortunately the flights to and from Ljubljana are still horribly expensive. The situation is slowly improving. Now Serbian air (ex JAT) offers reasonable prices via Belgrade, but they haven't started their Belgrade-Sofia route yet. The situation is so horrible that it is sometimes the cheapest way to fly to Ljubljana to fly via London or Brussels with one of the low-cost airlines (Easyjet or Wizzair).

It is much cheaper to fly to Trieste (196 EUR) or to Venice (161 EUR) and then use GoOpti service to Ljubljana. The return transfer Trieste-Ljubljana costs about 20 EUR and the return transfer Venice-Ljubljana costs about 35 EUR.

There is also the long haul bus service through Florentia. for 98EUR return, sounds like a good deal to me!
