Slovenia, the little country that is was the suprise package of my tour.
Its people, it’s varied beauty and the people.
Adjacent the old Austro/Hungarian castle a little statue marks the long struggle for independence.
Uprising against the Habsburg Empire from the 1400s, brutal occupation by Italy/Germany in WW2
Finally independent in 1990.
But as the music flows through beautiful Ljubljana the tragedies of the past are lost in the capital’s beauty.
After the sprawling mass of Budapest Ljubljana was a gem to discover.
