Driving in Slovenia: parking and other tips
Slovenia's highway system is very good which is why you need a vignette in order to use it. It is a temporary pass which lets you use the highways for a certain period of time. For one week, expect to pay around €15. You will be able to buy it at the airport or at a service station before getting onto the highway.

Road trips in Slovenia: what to do, what to see
Ljubljana is a delightful surprise and is a must during your holidays in Slovenia. While it has no world famous monuments, the city itself is no less charming. We actually think the locals like it that way! In the summer the city really comes alive with festivals, street performances, open-air cafes spilling out onto the streets, boat parties in the river… the Old Town is particularly nice for its medieval buildings and local designer shops.
Piran could easily be mistaken for a small town in Italy. It is arguably the most beautiful of Slovenia's coastal towns. It's no wonder, as it was part of the Venetian Empire between the 13th and 18th centuries. Perched on a small peninsula overlooking the sea, Piran is a great escape if you don't want to be surrounded by tourists. Take a break in Piran: swim, watch the sunsets and explore the Adriatic Seaside.
Perhaps the most famous sight in Slovenia is Lake Bled, near the Alps. The romantic lake is also the gateway to Triglav National Park, excellent for hiking and camping. The emerald-green lake has an island with a small white church with remains dating back to 9 AD. Overlooking the lake is Bled Castle, a pretty Romanesque castle from the 17th century. The area in all is not to be missed.
