Slovenia On a Budget
Slovenia Bled, Slovenia
Slovenia is in Eastern Europe and is also in the eastern portion of the Alps. The landscape is beautiful and varied. Within this small country you can visit gorgeous Mediterranean coasts that run along the Adriatic Sea, wonderful peaks in the Julian Alps, and rolling hills in the middle of the country.

Slovenia clings tightly to its culture, making it a wonderful place to visit where you can experience a different and unique part of Europe. Parts of the countryside actually appear quite similar to the neighboring Austria, but the culture and the people are strikingly different. As you drive down the street you'll pass by beautiful shrines and striking baroque steeples. The cities offer much to do in the way of sights. The capital, Ljubljana, has been likened to Prague, but to truly experience the country head into its untouched wilderness. The dramatic mountains offer activities for wildlife lovers, hikers, and adventure sport enthusiasts. To truly experience Slovenia, you must step outside the cities into the unparalleled nature it offers. This is really a country for outdoor enthusiasts. Whether you're interested in rock climbing or trekking, there are plenty of places for you to explore.

Because Slovenia is so small in size, it is relatively easy to travel around. Trips are generally short and fast, but in recent years there has been a decline in public transportation. Car ownership has been on the rise in the country and as result many bus schedules have be greatly reduced. It's best to look at a schedule ahead of time in order to plan your trip, particularly if you're traveling on the weekend.

Slovenia is quite cheap compared to the nearby Switzerland, Austria, and Italy, but it's more expensive than most countries in Eastern Europe. In particular, the capital city of Ljubljana can cost dramatically more than the surrounding countryside and small towns. One option to save money is to stock up on supplies and foods in a large, major supermarkets. These prices are often less than the smaller markets you'll find around town.
At A Glance
  • Slovenia is well connected to Italy and there are frequent buses that travel between various cities in the two countries. Depending on which city is serving as your departure point, and where you hope to arrive, you should find plenty of connections. It is more convenient to make the trip on a weekday when buses are generally more frequent and the ride is more efficient.

  • If you are driving a personal car or rental vehicle you will be required to pay a road tax. Any vehicles that are caught on the roadways without having paid the tax will be fined heavily. You can pay the tax at the border when you arrive. The border guards are suppose to provide you with the necessary information so that you understand the fee you are required to pay. They do not always do this, so make a point of asking if things are unclear to you.

  • Because more residents now own their own vehicles, public transportation in this small country is slipping. You should find rides on weekdays between most towns, but on weekends it can be more challenging. Sundays are particularly slow for public transportation. Try to plan your travel days around the weekends and you should have a much smoother trip.

  • Vegetarian food is limited in the country, but you can find salads on most restaurant menus. In larger cities a good vegetarian option is Mediterranean falafel. Outside of the cities your best option might be to go to a mini mart or supermarket where you can find some good meatless food options.

  • A fun way to experience the Slovenian countryside is to stay at a tourist farm. You'll have the opportunity to experience all kinds of traditional activities and dine on some delicious food.
