I haven't been in Slovenia for a long time now, last time over a year ago. I hope I get to go there soon again, it's an adorable little country, and a pleasure to drive in. And the people are friendly and everybody speaks English...

Slovenia is indeed very beautiful country, and also some very nice food there too, enjoy the trip by the way.

it's mixed actually. Influence of the Adriatic sea goes up to Bovec, Most na Soci is only ~30 km from Nova Gorica, which is definitely mediteranean.

what do you consider as Mediteranean influence?
here nobody nowhen has talked about Mediteranean influence in, for instance, Delnice or Gospić, which are only cca 20 km air line from the sea.

Temperatures, climate, vegetation. For example, Bovec is only 480 m a.s.l. and in has climate similar to Mediterranean, while Kranjska Gora on the other side of the pass has much different climate, especially in summer.
It is as in some Italian alpine valleys (from Belluno or Verrona upwards for example)
Delnice and Gospić are behind high mountain ridges and therefore don't have similar climate.

The rail bridge on the background is the largest stone arch ever built in the world.

Apparently it's only second largest stone arch bridge (85 m), though still largest among railway bridges of this kind. Syratalviadukt is mentioned as the largest one (90 m). The French version says a 1965 bridge in China is even longer, but it's apparently made of precast concrete, so I don't know what's the point.
