CRIS TIPS: 

– You can stay in Ljubljana and do day tours if you don’t have enough time or even if you just prefer to stay there.

– Slovenia is a great place if you are a nature fan and love adventures.

– I took the night bus from Munich and you can take either the bus, train, car or plane to get there from most places.
