WEEKEND TRIP WITH ATET: PRIMORSKA
One of the best things about Slovenia is the overwhelming number of diverse sights packed into such a small area - one of the country’s previous tourism slogans was ‘Europe in miniature’, which was and still is an apt description. The Mediterranean in the west, the Alps in the north and countless interesting countryside destinations to the east and south are all a short drive from Ljubljana. However, one thing that’s not so great about Slovenia is its public transport network. While buses and trains cover the majority of the country, even direct connections between Ljubljana and larger towns often take three times longer than going by car, and services are reduced or even non-existent at weekends. This makes renting a car a great option for visitors. Instead of seeing one town by bus, you can visit an entire region. Slovene roads are also generally in excellent condition and places of interest are well sign-posted. This issue we’ll take a look at the Primorska region.
