A road trip to Slovenia’s Alps is the perfect weekend getaway from Pápa. The two of us drove with a dog and the the entire trip from door to door took us about 4-5 hours.
The Slovenian Alps are towards the western borders of the country with the Italian and the Austrian Alps really close.
We stayed in an Airbnb very close to Lake Bled, which is an attraction on its own. Note that the lake is surrounded by cliffs, so parking is only possible in town Bled from where you’ll need to walk. Great restaurants around the lake, we found that everyone we met spoke English.
