We started our Road Trip in Montenegro, then drove across to Croatia, then Bosnia and Herzegovina, Hungary, and finally Slovenia. Considered to be one of the greenest countries in the world, Slovenia is known for its mountains, ski resorts and beautiful lakes. We arrived in Ljubljana (Slovenia’s capital and largest city) at around lunchtime on 02 October 2016 and we drove straight to the old town to explore this fascinating city. Ljubljana boots a unique charm with this Hapsburg inspired-architecture, colorful churches, beautiful rivers and abundant greenery. The town itself is very small and the city’s main attractions can be easily accessed on foot in just a few hours.
Some of the places we visited in Ljubljana were: the Prešernov square , Plečnik's Triple Bridge, the Central Market, the St Nicholas' Cathedral and the city’s most famous landmark, the Dragon bridge. We had lunch at one of the most well rated burgers in town: the Pop’s Place (really good), and tried some sweets and delicacies at Lolita Café, which I highly recommend. At the end of the day, we also visited the Ljubljana Castle which sits right on top of the city and provides incredible landscape views of the old town.
On the next day, we left our hotel at around 8 am and drove to Lake Bled to explore the area. Situated in the Julian Alps of the Upper Carniolan region of Northwestern Slovenia, Lake Bled is a major tourist destination in Slovenia. We managed to fly our drone there so you can enjoy some aerial views of the Lake in our video. After lunch, we left Lake Bled for Bohinj, which is the largest permanent Lake in Slovenia, and it is part of Triglav National Park. There weren’t many people when we visited the park in early October, so we spent hours enjoying the peace and quiet of the place and recording some aerial footage of the Lake before heading back to Ljubljana for the night.
On 04 October 2016, we departed Slovenia early in the morning to catch a bus to Trieste which is a city in Italy in the border to Slovenia, and then from there we would drive to Verona (see the link for this video below).

Eric Clark's Travel Videos - Kranj Slovenia - The Old City of Kranj. Its an historic city!
Eric Clark's Travel Videos - Kranj Slovenia - The Old City of Kranj. Its an historic city!
ARGGGGG This is in Slovenia, not Slovakia. When you travel so much and hit many cities its hard sometimes not to get confused. But there are no excuses. I am sorry. Slovenia is GREAT!
Kranj (pronounced [ˈkɾàːn] (listen), German: Krainburg) is the fourth-largest city in Slovenia, with a population of 37,373 (2015). It is located approximately 20 kilometres (12 miles) northwest of Ljubljana. The centre of the City Municipality of Kranj and of the traditional region of Upper Carniola (northwestern Slovenia) is a mainly industrial city with significant electronics and rubber industries.
The nucleus of the city is a well-preserved medieval old town, built at the confluence of the Kokra and Sava rivers. The city is served by the Kranj railway station on the route from Ljubljana to Munich, Germany (via Jesenice and Villach, Austria) and a highway. Slovenia's national airport, Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport (in Brnik) is also very close to Kranj, considerably more so than its nominal client, Ljubljana.
Kranj was attested in written sources in the 5th century and c. 670 as Carnium (and as via Chreinariorum in 973, actum Kreine in 1050–65, in loco Chreina in 1065–77, and Chrainburch in 1291). The Slovene name is derived from Slavic *Korn’ь, borrowed from Romance Carnium in late antiquity. Like the Latin regional name Carnia, it is derived from the northern Italic (Celtic) tribe known as the Carnī (Greek: Κάρνοι). The name of the tribe is probably derived from the Celtic root *karno- 'peak, hill, pile of stones'. The German name of the town was Krainburg. The name of the historical region of Carniola is a Latin diminutive form of Carnia.
Archaeological finds show that Kranj was settled in prehistoric times. Discoveries include a bronze ax found in Drulovka, Hallstatt-era graves in the northern part of the town above the bank of the Kokra River, testifying to Illyrian settlement, and a burial site in the southern part of the town above the left bank of the Sava River, indicating a Celtic settlement. The Romans founded the settlement of Carnium at the confluence of the Sava and Kokra. In the 6th century, a major Germanic settlement stood at the same site, and an Ostrogothic cemetery was discovered nearby. The Gothic settlement was continued by the Lombards and existed until c. AD 580, when it was destroyed by invading Slavs.
Traces of the old Slavic settlement (a Slavic burial site) date from the 9th and 10th centuries. As the seat of the margraves of Carniola in the 11th century, it was the most important settlement in the territory. The town itself is believed to have developed in the early 13th century; citizens of the town of Kranj appear in a document from 1221, and Kranj was officially referred to as a town in 1256. It was the seat of a court whose jurisdiction extended between that of Radovljica and Kamnik. In 1414 a decision was issued relieving the citizens of the town from paying tolls. In 1422 an ordinance required houses to be built of stone to prevent fires. A parish school was established in Kranj in 1423, and the same year the right was granted to Kranj to elect its own judge. Kranj was laid waste in 1471 in an Ottoman attack. Emperor Frederick III granted Kranj the right to collect tolls in documents from 1488 and 1493, and a 1493 document also granted the town the right to hold fairs twice a year. The town hospice records date back to the 15th century.
Crafts developed in Kranj during the Middle Ages. Mills first developed along the Sava and Kokra rivers, and this was followed by butchers, fur merchants, hide and wood processors, and then weavers of canvas and woolen cloth. Habsburg efforts to maintain Vienna's monopoly on trade with Italy resulted in trade routes bypassing Kranj.
Kranj was affected by peasant revolts in the 16th century; the leaders of the 1515 peasant revolt were beheaded in Kranj, and in 1525, when a new revolt threatened Carniola, hussars commanded by Johann Katzianer occupied the town and caused more damage than the Ottomans had inflicted half a century earlier. In 1668 half of the houses in Kranj were destroyed by a fire, and the entire town burned in 1749. Kranj was affected by plague outbreaks in 1552, 1557, 1625, 1627, and 1657. In the mid-16th century, most of the townspeople converted to Protestantism; the merchants of Kranj opened a Protestant school and Slovenian books by Protestant authors were imported from Germany. The Protestant Reformation in Kranj was led by Gašpar Rokavec, who was succeeded by Jernej Knafel after his death. Knafel was forced to withdraw from Kranj to Brdo Castle during the Counter-Reformation.
Economically, teamster services developed in Kranj in the 16th century, with connections to the rest of Upper Carniola and Carinthia. There were also several blacksmith workshops and two foundries along the Sava River.

Lake Bled is a lake in the Julian Alps of the Upper Carniolan region of northwestern Slovenia, where it adjoins the town of Bled. The lake surrounds Bled Island. The island has several buildings, the main one being the pilgrimage church dedicated to the Assumption of Mary, built in its current form near the end of the 17th century.
Vogel Ski Resort is a Slovenian ski resort located above Bohinj next to Bohinjsko jezero. The nearest city is Bled. It has a total of 22 kilometres (14 mi) of ski slopes, 8 kilometres (5.0 mi) tracks for cross country skiing and a snowboard park. The ski resort is located on the outskirts of Triglav National Park, therefore all snowmaking activities are forbidden on the area.
Lake Bohinj covering 318 hectares (790 acres), is the largest permanent lake in Slovenia. It is located within the Bohinj Valley of the Julian Alps, in the northwestern Upper Carniola region, and part of Triglav National Park. Lake Bohinj is 4.2 km (2.6 mi) long and 1 km (0.62 mi) at its maximum width.It is a glacial lake dammed by a moraine.
Savica Falls is a waterfall in northwestern Slovenia. It is 78 m high and is fed by a karst spring also called Savica just above the waterfall. A large portion of water is sourced from a karst basin around Black Lake, which lies around 500 m higher above the waterfall, because of which the spring has a relatively steady and strong flow. After heavy rains it can happen that the water supply from the lake and its surroundings exceeds the capacity of underground tunnels, and a portion of water flows on the surface in 600 m high cascading waterfal.

Vršič Mountain Pass, Julian Alps, Slovenia (pt 2)
Part 2: The Vršič Pass is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 1.611m (5,285ft) above the sea level, located across the Julian Alps in northwestern Slovenia. The cobblestone road to the summit is one of the highest roads in the country.
The road to reach the summit is known as Ruska cesta (Russian Road), renamed in July 2006 to honor the Russian prisoners of war that were forced to build it. The mountain road from Kranjska Gora (810m) across Vrisic (1,611m) to Log v Trenti (620m) spans 24 kilometres of 50 hairpin bends, 24 on the Kraniska Gora side and 26 on the Trenta side of the pass. Each turn is numbered. This trip doesn’t allow any moment of distraction and there’s no room for overtaking. After reaching the pass, going to Kranjska Gora, the road is more crowded, guaranteeing scenic alpine views. The road hasn’t much traffic, because people who want to travel to Kranjska Gora, prefer to use the Austrian way, in a wider toll road. Just off the main road, on the north side of the pass, at an elevation of around 1,200 m, there is the Russian Orthodox chapel, built by the Russian POWs to commemorate their comrades dead during the road construction. It’s one of the highest roads of the country.
Starting from Trenta, the ascent is 11.82 km long. Over this distance, the elevation gain is 993 meters. The average percentage is 8.4 %. The road was built in 1915 by Russian prisoners of war on the order of the Austro-Hungarian authorities to facilitate access to Kranjska Gora. During its building, in March 1916, an avalanche buried a prisoner of war camp, killing over 300 prisoners and a Russian Chapel, built in a typical Russian design, was built by the remaining prisoners in memory of those who died.
The road is open an average of seven months per year. In winter, it is usually closed to all traffic. The upper elevations of the road are rendered impassable by heavy snowfall during much of winter. What makes the drive so special, apart from the views and scenery, is the history behind its very existence. Vršič Pass is situated in the 206 Road, a road that connects Italy to Kranjska Gora, a town and a municipality on the Sava Dolinka river in the Upper Carniola region of northwest Slovenia, best known as a winter sports town, and annually hosting an event in the Alpine skiing World Cup series, also known as the Vitranc Cup. The Austro-Hungarian authorities decided early in 1915 that they needed a road to supply their forces who were preparing to defend their border with Italy (to become known as the Isonzo Front). Building, using Russian prisoners-of-war as forced labour, was begun in March 1915 and, unbelievably, was completed by the end of that year. The pass needed to be kept open all year so prisoners were stationed in camps to shovel the snow off the road during the winter months. In March 1916 an avalanche buried one of these camps killing around 400 prisoners and 10 of their guards. There is a small Russian cemetery near hairpin 4. To commemorate this disaster and in remembrance of their comrades, other Russian prisoners built a beautiful Russian Orthodox Chapel on the site of the camp and this can be seen by stopping at hairpin 8. To honour the Russian prisoners the road was renamed in July 2006, as the Ruska cesta (“Russian Road”).
The road connects, in the north, the Sava DolinkaValley in Gorenjska to the the Soča Valley in Primorska, in the south. At the beginning of the road, starting by the Italian side, there’s a blue plaque with the number 50 and information about the altitude. There are the same blue signals, marking the sharpest, steepest and most challenging corners on the route. The road is difficult and it’s a nightmare in the wet or dark (or both). The road is an exhilarating and spectacular drive, climbing and descending 49 hairpin bends, each one numbered and with height recorded, taking you across the spine of the Julian Alps. It is not a difficult route, though not recommended if you are towing a caravan.
