Ljubljana, Slovenia. One of Europe’s smallest capitals, Ljubljana is not the sort of place where a guy feels compelled to fit the castle, the bus tour, the riverboat and the dodgy-seeming bar that the hotel guy said was a good restaurant into one day. Which is good. Those things are tiring, and they quickly become a blur. In Ljubljana, tourism is simple: just walk around. Seriously: Just. Walk. Around. And mention Slavoj Zizek when you come home and talk about it.
Bled, Lake Bled, Slovenia - Slovenia has only one island but its uniqueness makes it more attractive than many an archipelago. Sheltered by picturesque mountains, the island reigns in the middle of an Alpine lake. Its charm has made it a symbol for centuries of a town to which guests from all over the world love to return. This town, which has already existed for a thousand years, is BLED. - Dragan
