Slovenia in photography: a small land of immense natural beauty
August 2016. 3 days in Slovenia. Some pictures and few words of my trip with my Nikon D3100 18–105mm.
Day 1 (morning): Lake Bled
Around 1h20 drive from Ljubljana by bus.
The water of lake is transparent.
Mountains reflect like in a miror.
Little island at the centre with an old church. Old castle on the top of mountain.
Balad. Under two hours.
A footpath allows to wal around the lake. By the way, you’ll always be close to water and sometimes even above the water on wooden walkways.
Day 1 (afternoon): Lake Bohinj
29km from Lake Bled. Around 45 minutes drive from Bled by bus.
Wilder. Surrounded by mountains.
The water is colder but you can swim in summer.
Day 2: Škocjan Caves
Declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
Less touristic than Postojna Caves.
Choose the route number 2 of Caves. My friend and I was totally alone during our visit.
You go along the underground river.
Physical effort during 2 hours. Stairs. Stone path. Climbing. Go deeper into the forest.
Obscurity and window of light. Silence. Force of the water. Dizzying height.
At the end, go to point view. Look at the nature.
Day 3 : Ljubljana
ECOLOGY. BIKE. RECYCLING. PEDESTRIAN AREA.
CONTESTATION. POLITICS. FEMINISM. ART.
City with a human face. No hight skyscrapers. Small centre.
Every Friday from mid-March to October, you can get to know the chefs, savor the delicious Slovenian and international dishes they prepare in front of you.
