Zelenci and the trip to the emerald lake

zelenci (2)

There are places that look magical even on a cold, cloudy winter day, such as Zelenci. That perfect emerald green colour charms everyone, regardless of the weather and is taking over Instagram :). You don’t have to walk far to get to them – it depends on the parking spot, so the walk can take 10-15 minutes or 1 hour. It’s a place to see, where you can enjoy in the beautiful sights and relax. It’s a place you have to visit, if you are near Kranjska Gora, and you won’t spend the whole day walking there, so you’ll have plenty of time to visit other sights nearby (such as Lake Jasna) and possibly risk seeing TOO MANY beautiful places in one day. It may sound cheesy, but Zelenci and so many sights nearby are a true winter wonderland. Even though I can’t wait for spring and warmer temperatures, I just love sights like this.

My favourite cafés in Ljubljana

best cafe ljubljana.jpg

This will be one of those less text, more photos post, because I think the photos will speak for themselves. You’ve probably learnt by now that I’m a huge coffee lover (I’m writing this post while drinking a cup of it:)). I mostly drink my coffee at home, in the morning (or in the afternoon:D)) but when I go to a café, I want it all. Great atmosphere, delicious coffee, cozy seats, nice staff and always – great company.

Danes je čas za manj teksta in več fotk, ker bodo te povedala več. Najbrž že veste, da obožujem kavo in tudi to objavo pišem med pitjem prve skodelice kave danes. Največ je spijem doma, zjutraj in včasih tudi popoldne, a ko se odpravim nekam ven na kavo, hočem vse. Luštno atmosfero, super kavo, udobne stole, prijazno osebje, pa še fajn družbo.

Lake Jasna and why I like to visit it in every season

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

Today I decided to write about one of my favourite destinations (and most instagramable places) in Slovenia. I’m a bit embarrassed to admit I didn’t know that lake Jasna exist until I went to a trip around that part of Slovenia 3 years ago, and while we were driving from Zelenci to Vršič pass, we saw a beautiful lake with mountains in the background. And yeah, I had no idea what’s the name of the lake. But from then on, I’ve returned to this lake every few months. It’s one of those places that looks great in every season. In the summer, you can go for a quick swim or just enjoy the beautiful nature, and in the winter, you can drink a cup of mulled wine or start a fun snowball fight with your friends.

Winter trip ideas: BLED

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

I can’t believe that this is the fifth blogmas post! Time flies by so fast and before we know it, it will be Christmas. Since we already saw the first snow in Slovenia and the temperatures are quite cold, I decided to go on a trip to the beautiful winter wonderland – Bled. I’m sure you’ve heard of it, as it is one of the most famous Slovenian touristic destinations and for a good reason: come on, this place looks like something from a fairy-tale! If you have the opportunity, I would recommend you to visit Bled on a workday. I visited it on Monday and I hardly met anyone on the way around the lake! Everything was so calm an peaceful in comparison to summer and weekends. I didn’t expect that but I was pleasantly surprised :). And so was my boyfriend who hates the crowds 😀 All in all, it was a perfect winter walk. No need for festive music, stands, mulled wine. Just nature…and well, a ”kremšnita” (one of the best Slovenian desserts) is a must :).

Discovering Slovenia

Processed with VSCO with a5 preset

I’ve travelled a lot during the spring months, so I decided to save some money in the summer and discover the beautiful Slovenian mountain side. Plane tickets will be cheaper in September:). Even though Slovenia is a small country it has a lot to offer and during this trip I found some new favourite spots. My journey started at the national reserve Zelenci, so early that there was almost no one there = extremely early for me.

Why should you visit Slovenian seaside in spring?

The seaside is one of my favourite parts of Slovenia. Even though it’s just 46 km long and you could almost walk from one part to another, it’s diverse and beautiful. It’s a combination of gorgeous old towns, pure nature and tourist destinations. I love to visit the seaside in spring and in autumn, as it’s not so filled with tourists. In spring it feels like everything is slowly waking up after winter. In autumn it is a calm and windy place that always makes me feel peaceful. Time runs slower there. Everybody is relaxed, nobody is in a hurry and the sun shines more often.

Paths of Ljubljana

Processed with VSCOcam with hb2 preset

On of the most beautiful walking paths in Ljubljana is Path of remembrance and comradeship. 32,5 km long walkway runs around Ljubljana where the fence used to be during occupation of the town during 2nd world war. Every May, many people take part in event and spend the day walking and collecting special badges, some even decide to compete in the Triples run. But people don’t walk here only on this day, as it is a beautiful path for walking,jogging or cycling.
