Two capitals in one trip

Tale as old as the world itself is the one about people always mistaking Slovenia for Slovakia and vice versa. But what about if there was a way of having a quick inside of both of the countries in just one trip, where you can visit the both capitals and forever establish the difference between those two European gems?

In January Ryanair offers one way flights from Dublin to Bratislava for just € 19.99. From there to Ljubljana you can shake things up and book a bus ticket with Flixbus which will cost you only € 32.50. Arriving to Bratislava at lunch time gives you just the opportunity to experience the country trough food and a bus ride at night enables you to get some rest and walk the streets of Ljubljana as a new person.

Breakfast in the countries capital can sometimes even be a better idea than any other meal. And if just tasting the country through what the capital has to offer is not enough for you, you can always hop on a new bus and discover Slovenia’s well know sights or even those that are not that well know at all. For example, you can treat yourself with a trip to Slovenian seaside, where you can visit cities such as Koper, Portorož and Piran. Then you can get (metaphorically, of course) lost in one of many Slovenian caves, for example Postojna cave being the most famous of them all, and Škocjan caves

Your inner peace can be re-established by gazing upon the green hills and valleys at Koroška, Gorenjska, or Savinjska region, or by admiring the never ending flatness of Pomurje region. Specialities such as desserts and local wine can be tasted at almost every corner, so also a visit to Prekmurje or Dolenjska will be worth your while.

Getting to know the cultural and natural heritage is simply always a part of every kind of trip in Slovenia. In the bigger cities, such as Ljubljana and Maribor, or in a bit smaller ones, such as Idrija

Either way there are many beautiful sights and new experiences to choose from in Slovenia, so in the future you will have no problem forever distinguishing between sLOVEnia and Slovakia. 

Let your taste buds be your guide!
