Shit, I've just returned from Slovenia two days ago. If you'd just announced it earlier...

Btw, Ljubljana is beautiful. And so is the rest of the country.

I could've had magnetic resonance two days ago, but in Maribor, and you never know what those results would be like. Where else were you?

Apart from Ljubljana we've seen Bled, stayed in Bohinj area and did some trekking there and been to Vrata valley. I was hoping to do some proper mountaineering trip, but it turned out that one girl from our group wasn't really prepared for such thing (despite her statements that she was). And the weather wasn't exactly great, so we stayed in valleys. But it was fun nevertheless. And we've been to Croatia (Krk island) for 1½ day.

And because this is SSC and roadtrips also counts, we've covered A1 from Maribor to Postojna and then road no. 6 to Rupa, A2 from Jesenice to Ljubljana and some mountain roads, including a great gravel road from Krnica to Mojstrana

Slovenian road network impressed me greatly, but you seriously need a motorway connection from Postojna to Croatian border. And get rid of those toll booths in the middle of a motorway, there is like one every 50 km!

Are there toll booths on Slovenian motorways? I tought that you only have to pay for the vignette and that's all.

The vignette system only exists since a few years, before that there was an open toll system with toll booths. They have not been removed yet, though newer motorways do not have toll booths for regular traffic (like A4). Trucks still have to pay the old-fashion way.

Tolling on A4: no obstacles for cars, but a separate tolling facility for trucks.

^ Also on A1 at Kozina, for example. I remember there were toll booths at the exits too.

Existing toll booths will be removed when electronic toll system for truck will be introduced. Although in my opinion they could at least adapt existing booths for safer passage of cars.

A side benefit of highway construction - fully unearthed Polish WWII bunker near Bobrowniki (A1 highway).

Are they going to leave that in the open air or demolish it?
