Arriving in Slovenia

Before crossing the border into Slovenia we went to a petrol station in Croatia and bought a week long Vignette sticker for the windscreen which is required for driving on toll roads in Slovenia. Driving through the border was a simple and quick process.

We found our accommodation (Hotel Mrak) easily in Ljubljana and had a car park reserved right in front of the hotel which was very convenient. In terms of a hotel, we had wonderful breakfasts at the hotel, found the rooms to be perfectly adequate and clean, and the location of the hotel was in easy walking distance to the key sites and eateries.

On our first evening we went for a walk from our hotel to the waterfront area and beautiful old town.

We then continued on to a restaurant (Slovenska Hiša - Figovec) a bit out of the city centre, but still in easy walking distance, recommended by the person on the desk at the hotel for some good Slovenian cuisine. Jane particularly enjoyed the mixed lard.

On the walk home we got to see a lovely view of the castle.
