The capital city is Ljubljana, and if you say the j's as y’s you might just be able to pronounce it. I had a great time strolling through the relatively quiet streets of the capital’s old town before ascending to Ljubljana Castle which sits atop a hill near the center of the city. It gave some nice views, but the real highlight of Slovenia came the next day.
Lake Bled is a beautiful lake tucked into the Julian Alps about an hour outside of the city that is an easy and popular day trip destination. And what a gorgeous, gorgeous lake it is; I felt like every other photo I was taking there could be a postcard. If the lake wasn’t enough, there is also a tiny island in the middle of the lake with a church sitting on it, and to top it all off Bled Castle sits very dramatically on a sheer cliff overlooking the whole scene.
If you ever plan a trip to Europe, do what you can to include this best kept secret.
Serbia is next…
