I am currently living in Southern Austria and am considering spending some time after New Year in Slovenia (~1st-5th Jan). I know I would like to start my trip in the Lake Bled area and my final stop will be Maribor. I have been to Ljubljana before so would not be interested in going there again.
My current plan is:
1st - train to Lake Bled and stay 2 nights (also interested in Kranj, Skofja Loka)
3rd - somewhere in the middle?
4th- train to Maribor and stay (also want to see Ptuj)
5th or 6th - travel home
I imagine for a lot of people this is rushed but I really want to make the most of my time living so centrally in Europe.
Anyway, my question is, does anyone have any recommendations for somewhere to stay in between Bled and Maribor that is accessible by public transport and ideally has a youth hostel or somewhere inexpensive to stay?
Thank you in advance!
