Wizzair will take care for your transportation for low prices starting at only €30,49, from London Luton to Ljubljana, the beautiful Slovenian capital. From there, the sky is the limit when it comes to Slovenia.

So let's say that the daffodil part of the introduction caught your eye and at this point you are already wondering why this particular flowers. Of course the perfect way would be your immediate departure because there is no proper way of describing this sight and it's belonging fairy-tale. Let your senses be the judge of the beauty that is reachable from Ljubljana with a national train connection of Slovenske železnice for only €5,80. In approximately hour and a half you will be transported from the lively city scenario to the town of Jesenice and a peaceful, fairy-tale land of Karavanke Montains. Under Mt Golica, on the meadows between the villages of Plavški Rovt, Prihodi, Planina pod Golico and Javorniški Rovt you will find yourself in a land of snow white daffodils, or Ključavnic – the Keyholes – as they are called by the locals. Deriving from the legend of God locking the honey into the yellow centres of the flowers to punish the greedy bees who gathered it also on Sundays and on holidays.

You are allowed to take in all of the unimaginable beauty of the flowers, but beware not to disturb them as they are protected by Ordinance on the protection of rare or endangered plant species. Luckily, memories are everlasting and this one will certainly come back every time you will think of Slovenia or get stung by a bee.

For an extended visit there are a few HI hostels in the vicinity. The shortest drive from Jesenice is the Youth Hostel Bledec and your other options are the Youth Hostel Radovljica or the Youth Hostel Barovc. Either way, your stay in Gorenjska region of Slovenia will certainly be a pleasant one due to the amazing nature and hospitality of the people. But hurry, May is about to begin!
