Slovenia is a well kept secret - lovely countryside, great people and Lake Bled must be the most beautiful place in Europe. Food their weak point, with restaurants generally pretty awful, with the exception of Ostarija Peglez'n across the road from the Panorama restaurant on the lake front. It was excellent, and good value. Bled restaurants should drop the old fashoioned 'live music'' at night, that actually puts people off it's so bad, and verberates around the town all night. Roads easy to drive, and a hire car a big asset to get out and visit the countryside. Avoid the big hotels, and stay in any of the great little pensions or apartments.
