(and Slovenia for that matter) and though my trip was focused on checking out Ljubljana (which I absolutely enjoyed!), I wanted to also explore a bit of the Slovenian countryside. There are lots of day-trip opportunities from Ljubljana , the capital of Slovenia. Being in the centre of this small country, it’s easy to plan a day trip and be back for dinner in Ljubljana. Most first-time visitors to Slovenia would choose a trip to the famous Julian Alps and Lake Bled I guess. Me being me, I chose something a bit off the beaten path: the western hinterland of Ljubljana that’s often referred to as Blagaj’s Land. Only a 30-minute drive from the Slovenian capital, this is a land of undulating landscapes, with green meadows interspersed with patches of forest and picturesque villages.
