The best route is the one that works the best for your budget and itinerary, as well as the time of year (as in sometimes you may want to start in the south for warm weather).
The best route would be certainly to Zagreb, not Ljubljana. Ljubljana is in Slovenia, a different country, and public transport connections are really scarce.
