Beautiful Ljubljana, Slovenia

Kutrubes Travel planned an exquisitely complicated tour for me through “eastern” Europe, helping me to make the most of seeing the highlights of these countries in the most meaningful way, without just zipping through.

I started out in Romania, flew to Bulgaria, then drove through Serbia, next to Macedonia, Kosovo, Albania, Montenegro, Croatia, Boznia-Herzegovina, Slovenia, and ending in Venice, Italy.

The highlight of Slovenia, is just walking through its spectacular downtown. If there is a more beautiful and uplifting town in Europe, I haven’t seen it. Loved the bridge with the locks on it … this bridge was the first and inspired MANY others afterwards. You might enjoy the National Museum of Slovenia in the capital, Ljubljana. It is the oldest and largest museum in all of Slovenia and houses numerous valuable historical objects. As Slovenia is known for its natural beauty adventurers will enjoy the waterfalls, mountains, caves and lakes located in the Savinja and Šalek Valley!

Cool bridge with locks on it … signifying love!
