Idyllic Adriatic, Finale. Slovenia’s Seashore

The Republic of Slovenia was the first to close their borders and declare independence from Yugoslavia. After 10 days of fighting, Slovenia became its own country in 1991. Now you know.  Nearly the size of the U.S. state New Jersey, Slovenia’s riviera is the smallest of the former Yugoslav states at just 46,6 km. Now you know that, as well.

Wörthersee sits in the corner of Austria near to Italy and Slovenia, and the pretty cities of Bled and Ljubljana were each but an equally pretty hours’ drive from the resort (and ended up being the best part of our “wellness” weekend.)
Just gazing at this scenery on our way to Slovenia relaxed us.

…the boys took an overnight road trip to Ljubljana, Slovenia. Where is Slovenia, you might wonder? Slovenia, like Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Macedonia and Montenegro were all once part of Yugoslavia, and now it is an independent country that borders Austria to the south. Ljubljana is its capital.
