Does only Ljubljana counts or do you want to see some other Slovenian sightseeings?

I suggest you to see the page:

Here you go dude i answered the same question to a poster on a nother forum, he also wanted to know where to find Slovenian cooking and shopping in Ljubljana:

To all the Slovenian posters on here, I have a question that's sort of off topic

I heard Slovenia was a very nice country. How would an American enjoy vacationing in cities like Piran and Ljubljana?

I'm trying to think of countries to visit and Slovenia seems like an interesting place so can you tell me about...

-Interesting cities to visit

and anything else?

Thank you

Well funny you should ask this right now. Some distant relatives from the US just came to visit a week ago. The initially planed to stay in Slovenia only 2 days so to say hallo to everyone and then head to Croatia to one of the islands.
But after they came to Ljubljana they fell in love with the place and stayed 5 days but then really had to leave, yet they say next time they come it will be for longer.
I personally think that Slovenia is great for a week as far as attractions go, nights at Ljubljanica thats the old part of town are simply great, and then you have 1 day for Bled one day for Bohinj 1 day for Piran and Portoroz, 1 day for Postojna and 1 day for Kranjska Gora, those i would say are the main places i would want to visite. However if had a bit more time i would also want to visite Bovec for sure. Venice and Vienna are only around 4h drive tops, Verona around 5 so there is that.

A nice page on FB about Slovenia with great photos and descriptions.

Dining in Ljubljana should be great there are tone of restaurants to choose from with all kinds of food
and the average price per person with drinks should be around 10€.

Alright I'll research all of these, thanks for the list

Kranjska Gora

I have two more questions, what are some traditional Slovenian types of cuisine and where are the upscale shopping districts located at throughout Slovenia?

Well here are a few restaurants of the top of my head that serve i would say some traditional Slovenian meals. They are all located in the center of Ljubljana. The sites are in English so don't worry:
the best one but the most expensive: http://www.privodniku.si/ENG/index.html

The upscale shopping is also available in Ljubljan's city center in and around it. The biggest shopping centers however are BTC and Rudnik(Supernova) there are a lot of stores there, but can get a bit too crowded...


Also some tidbits about Slovenia which i suppose i would enjoy if i were a tourist here: the people are very nice, almost everybody speaks English very well and Ljubljana is the safes capital in the world.
A study was also done and 30 cellphones were deliberately placed in public places in 30 or was is 50 world capitals. Then they noted how many were found and returned to the police, Ljubljana returned 29 out of 30 and ranked first on the list.

I'll be in Ljubljana probably in November. Any suggestions, good club or pub, good place to eat or some great fast-food stand?
I need some real suggestions, not from some tourist propaganda web sights.
Is there any good kafana?

I read a review of train travel Venice to Ljubljana - a 4hr journey - is it possible to do this in the reverse? ie Ljubljana to Venice without going via Austria. Do you have suggestion to party in the city centre? and what about dinner? shall we book a table or is it possible to find a table withouth booking? we are looking for a simple dinner, nothing important.

I heard that Ljubljana has a wonderful water treatment plant that you can tour.

be sure not to miss a hot dog day in lepa zoga - hot dogs (w frankfurts or sausages) are served every WEDNESDAY in the morning (they're usually out of hot dogs before 2 in the afternoon so be sure to come early).
also it's a sport bar, so you can go there and watch a game of your favorite team.:)

also lepa zoga is very close to park tivoli, which is a nice place to walk around and of course, hala tivoli is just nearby so you can catch union olimpija practicing in the morning.

when it comes to fast food, my favourite fast food is AJDA and it can be found either on the opposite side of the train/bus station or couple of blocks down to the direction of centre of the town (presernov trg) on the left side of slovenska cesta (if you walk by the slovenska cesta from the train station). you can also find great sandwiches at smith's, which is a couple of minutes away from ajda and usually closes at 2 or 3 in the afternoon.

last but not least, the best bosnian food in town is served in stepanjsko naselje, the name of the place is 10 u pol (deset u pol). if you don't feel like taking a bus or a cab from the center of the town (i'd say it's a 5-6 € trip by cab) you can go to harambasa, which also serves bosnian food. it's located in trnovo, very close (behind) the university of architecture. it's owned by a very famous slovenian-bosnian sport therapeutist.

almost forgot, the best pizza in ljubljana is imo served in garaza, which is in rudnik, on the left side of dolenjska cesta. not far away from the center (also maybe not a walking distance), but just like 10 u pol, worth it! you can search for it on the facebook.

as for the restaurants and reservations - it depends, some of the fancier places might require a reservation, but i think it's mostly on weekends. but you shouldn't have a problem finding a table in a nice place even during the weekends.

kafana - the centre of ljubljana (which you will find is very small) is full of those, although it's mostly fancy-stylish places full of posh people which i normally despise. you can look for the bar cezar, which is close to the train station just by the stock exchange building. a fine place to have a couple of drinks (too many). there are more like it, you just need to walk around a bit and find one you like.

partying - i'd say ljubljana is not a very good party town but anyway; it also depends of what kind of stuff you're into. go to TOP for cocktails and cheesy house/commercial music and i think you can also have a dinner there. club bachus is similar to top only worse and same goes for kms (klub mariborskih studentov). there's only one proper club in ljubljana, it's called K4 and you can go there to listen mostly electronica. also there are pubs/bars like orto bar, cutty sark and so on.
i'd say the go-to zone just to go out and have a couple of drinks would be the area around ljubljanica river, starting at the market and follow the river upstream. lots of places to sit and have fun.

benjaminn - visiting venice from ljubljana is not a problem, it takes a 2-3 hours by car and you don't have to go through austria. i don't know about other forms of transport; maybe train is an option but i normally don't recommend it because i have bad experience with trains in slovenia.

let me know if you guys need any specific information concerning the fast food /asian/takeaway joints.

oh yeah, and if you wanted to go play some ball, it could be arranged too. let me know.
