**If driving from Italy or a bordering country, be aware that you will need a vignette (sticker for your car to enter the country). They sell weekly, monthly, etc. vignettes at gas stations prior to reaching the border.**
Ljubljana, the capital is easily seen on foot. You must try their dumplings! https://www.moji-struklji.si/
The visitor center has loads of useful information. Also, finding people who speak some English is not difficult in Ljubljana.
The Old Town district is charming and picturesque. The Triple and Dragon bridges are not to be missed.
The Central Market (go on Fridays) is close by.
This small capital even comes complete with a castle on a hill. So much to love about Ljubljana!
Lake Bled and Vintgar Gorge are not to be missed! You can find free parking nearby the Lake. The walk through the Gorge is easy for all ages. No hiking or difficult terrain. It does get cool, so if you are visiting in September (my preferred month in Europe), bring a sweater in late afternoons.
