Walking Tour around this turbulent city

It was nice warm day around 30 degrees today with high humidity so it was pretty hot walking around from 10am until 4.30pm. Our little feet were burning hot when we came back to the hostel to rip off our shoes and set our tootsies free!.

Did some trip planning this morning and to reduce a long travel day to get from Bratislava to Krakow next week did some more research and will now go to Vienna on Sunday instead of that being our last place and will stay instead in Linz that last night.

Went to a money changer and changed 50 Euro into Dinar - as you can see from the prices below it is very cheap here

Expenses: 50 Dinar coke - 60 c AUD 500 Dinar - 2 daily bus tickets $6.29 AUD 282 Dinar - lunch $3.80 AUD 120 Dinar -Rasberries $1.30 AUD 3300 Dinar - Dinner $40 AUD 110 dinar - Ice-cream $1.40 AUD 550 dinar - food for train $6.90 lunch 3800 Dinar - 2 train tickets to Budapest $48 AUD

Belgrade is the largest city in Serbia and the capital of this democratic republic. Thanks to its strategic location at the confluence of the Sava and Danube rivers, and intersection of Western and Oriental Europe, Belgrade has been fought over in 115 wars and razed to the ground 44 times. As a result there is no distinct architectural style but a mixture of Austrian, Ottoman and communist. In 1521 Belgrade was conquered by the Ottomans, and there followed a period of tug-of war between the Ottoman and Austro-Hungarian Empires, who took turns destroying the city. Belgrade was also the capital of Yugoslavia from it's inception as a kingdom in1918, throughout the post World War II socialist era, right up until the war in 1990's when Yugoslavia was dissolved. Leaving the hostel we walked up the road to a local market recommended by our hostel host and bought some cherries and raspberries very cheaply $1.50- $2 AUD. This is where locals shop each day for their food

Walked past the beautiful Moscow Hotel - the oldest hotel in Belgrade and met up with the 11am free walking tour ( Belgrade Walking tour) under the horse monument in Republic Square that went until 1.30pm.

Skadarlija- It is a small very cobblestoned street full of a lot of restaurants, or Kafana's as they are called.This is probably the best Bohemian street in the world with bright decorated restaurants and seating out in the street.. There are more than twenty kafana's in this area serving Serbian food and coffee .

While here our guide gave us each a small cup pf her grandfathers home made cherry reikia ( not sure how to spell it but it is a brandy liquor) which is 70 -80% alcohol It nearly took my breath away but was very nice if I sipped it slowly

The second longest river in Europe, the Danube connects Belgrade with world seas - the North Sea, at Rotterdam, through the Rhine-Main- Danube Canal and the Black Sea, into which it flows. Belgrade is nestled at the confluence of the Danube and Sava Rivers,

Some of things our walk included: Old Bohemian Quarter Ottoman Heritage and mosque from 1575 - only 1 in town Kalemegdon Park Belgrade fortress Confluence of Sava and Danube Rivers Cathedral Church Kafana ? - its name is the question mark

Finished at a beautiful pedestrian shopping street full of very cool and interesting cafes and shops. It was huge and also had fountains at one end. There were so many people around into the evening and the place has a great vibe

We grabbed some pizza for a corner outlet for a late lunch. Really cheap lunch for both of us for $3.80 AUD.

The guide had recommended to go to the other side of town by the river a lovely Austrian part of town that is avery old with cobblestoned streets and many cafes along the riverfront called Zemun. We got directions from naif centre to a bus stop to catch the 84 or 706 and 707 as the faster more direct route. She was hard to understand and we promptly forget her directions, We found a kiosk where all transport tickets must be pre-purchased and then validated own boarding . The lady could not understand what we were asking to purchase so am who could speak a little english helped out with translating and then redirected u stop the bus top. It was not easy to find but we eventually got there. Buses come every few minutes and this was a huge double length but was in very bad shape.

Serbia has 25% unemployment with lots of graffiti and you can tel the country i spoor with not greta infrastructure as there are deep dangerous holed to fall into on the footpaths, and buses and trains are very old and derelict looking.

It was a short 15 minute ride and we wandered around in the heat until we found the area by the river which was very attractive and a lovely getaway so close to the busy city centre.

We walked back to our lovely hostel which is in such a great location. and only cost me 9E a night. I left Mum to go to the station to buy our train tickets to Budapest tomorrow morning. They were 1900 Dinar or $24 AUD each for an 8 1/2 train ride

After a rest out of the heat we walked back to Bohemian Quarter for traditional serbian dinner of lamb and potatoes which was enough to eat an army. I have never eaten so much meat . Brad and my carnivore boys would love eating here. It was very pretty and atmospheric with traditional Serbian musicians playing in the street.

Train travel to Serbia

Some Slovenian history – from the mid 14th century Austria controlled Slovenia until 1918. After WW1 western Slovenia was handed to Italy as Austro – Hungarian post war repatriations and the northern part stayed with Austria. The remainder joined fellow south slavs in forming the kingdom of the serbs, Croats and Slovenes – later Yugoslavia.

WW2 ended with Slovenia regaining Italian held areas from Piran to Bovec but losing Trieste. In post war Yugoslavia Tito was a liked and by some still missed communist leader. By the 1980's the federation was increasingly serb dominated and Slovenes feared losing their political autonomy. Slovenia broke away from Yugoslavia in 1991 which resulted in the 10 day war.. They joined the EU in 2004

Hvala…thank you Slovenia for a marvellous 5 nights - wish I could have styed longer

The train is pretty empty so we spead out – it will be a long 9 hour journey to the border of Croatia, right across northern Croatia and into Serbia. The first hour was again through pretty Slovenian scenery – there does not seem to be any part of this country that is not attractive,. Initially through high mountains and along deep gorges with a rushing river, castle and little villages, changed to a wide peaceful green river near Radece with wooded hills and villages and churches dotted along the riverfront. We were following the Sava River that was periodically dammed.

We arrived at the border of Croatia at 10.10am and immigration officials came through the train. On a train beside us were many tanks and army vehicles

We left for Zagreb at 10.20am and arrived in at 10.50am. It felt much poorer than Slovenia with way more graffiti as we came into Zagreb

Left at 11.10am and had some gypsies come through begging before they were removed by the conductor

The scenery was now very flat with fields growing crops and poor looking villages

Passports stamped again as we left Croatia at 3.15pm

At 3.30pm we stopped in Serbia for about 15 minutes while our passports were stamped again

The toilets on this train are so disgusting I dare not use them so have been hanging on and not drinking any water. Nowhere to buy food so just as well we came prepared with lots of food!

We pulled into Belgrade station at 5.30pm to a very unkempt poor looking station. I headed straight to the toilets which were squat toilets and started getting some water into my dehydrated little body! We changed some money into Dinars and as there were no directions to walk to the hostel I borrowed a local serbian's phone and called the hostel. The owner very kindly said he would come and meet us.

Belgrade is a big busy city with ver a million people. The infrastructure looks poor and there isa lots of grafitti. We were met by Daniel who walked us the 1/2 km to the hostel up a little cobble stoned street. He pointed out a restaurant nearby with good serbian food. The hostel is on the 5th floor of a building and is very comfortable and welcoming. We headed back to the station to find out about train times to Hungary - another 8 hour journey ! Serbian trains are not fast !! On the way back had dinner at the restaurant in an atmospheric decorated local restaurant. We started with shared starters with an assortment of sliced meats, a sort of profiterole looking bread and relishes. They were delicious. Next I had lamb soup and salad followed by a dessert soaked in honey.Very sweet and just had a taste of that. Food is very cheap and our meal cost1800 Dinar (about $25 AUD)

Back the hostel Daniel gave out liquor chocolates to everyone and we chatted for hours with Emma an Indian girl from the UK who lives in New York and works at Credit Suisse who is travelling for 2 years. We had a lot in common - love of travel and hiking and especially in that we have both have husbands who are not interested in backpacking!

Caves and Castles

It was another nice day in the mid 20's and a bit cooler than yesterday. I hadn’t slept that well with my dorm room having a window 2 levels above the alley where there were many boisterous people talking loudly as they walked through at 2.30am!

We left at 7.20 am to walk to the bus station to catch the 8am bus to Postjana to visit the famous caves. We arrived 50 minutes later . Tickets cost 15 E each return for the bus and 23 E for the cave entry. We were on the first entry unto the caves at 10am along with hundreds of Japanese on tours. We boarded a train that went for a couple of kilometres before we disembarked to walk round a trail through several caves viewing the stunning stalagmites and stalactites. These grew at 1 mm every 10 – 40 years. Their colour varied from pure white to reddish colour depending on what minerals were in the water as it dripped down. We went from 80 – 180 metres below the surface of the ground.

There are 24 km of underground passages, galleries and halls but we only saw 3km.

The crown is called the 'briiliant" and is a 5 metre high pure white stalagmite. We also saw the little creatures called the proteus that live here that are blind salamanders, only need to eat every few years and were once believed to be baby dragons.

The cave is naturally ventilated so that you can breathe in it , unlike the salt mines that needed air shafts.

The Concert hall can hold 10,000 people for events and has great acoustics and an echo lasts for 6 seconds.

It is only 10 degrees in the cave and after 90 minutes I was glad to get back into the sunshine.

After finishing the 1 ½ hour tour we asked the ticket office to book us a taxi the 9km drive to Predjama Castle as there was no other way there. We were told it would be 30 E each !!!! When the driver arrived he said there was another couple and it would only cost us 9 E each!!

We were able to spend an 1 ½ there and I loved this castle. It was started in the 11th century and completed in the 15 th century . This majestic castle is situated in a cave half way up a 127 metre cliff. It is the largest cave castle in the world and one of the few surviving castle caves in Alpine foothills.

It was an incredible castle spread over 5 levels and built so seamlessly into the cave that sometimes you couldn’t tell what was cave or what was man made. It cost 12 E to enter the castle and you were given an audio guide

At the very top it went into a huge cave the went through to the other side of the mountain.

There once was a knight who defended the castle from Austrian conquerors for over a year with the aid of a secret tunnel before one of his servants betrayed him by revealing that the thinnest part of the wall was a toilet and he was killed by a cannon ball when he went in to sit on that throne.

Below the castle goes a stream that disappears into the limestone caves that with 14km of tunnels is the 2nd largest cave site in Slovenia

The central part of the castle was the living quarters for the Lords family and extended over 3 floors. In the dining room fortified 168cm thick walls are evident here. Small windows, thick walls and the cave environment made life in the castle cold, moist and unpleasant. Only the areas near windows provided a bit of comfort by letting in light and warmth. Castles before the 15th century were very uncomfortable and built for security rather than comfort.

This was probably the most interesting castle I have ever visited.

I found some steps near the castle that were begging to be walked up.

The taxi took us back to the caves site and we caught the 2.15pm bus back to Ljubliana.

It was overcast by the afternoon and the riverside was so quiet tonight compared to yesterday

We went back to the hostel and showered and organized for an early start to Belgrade in the morning and relaxed at the Chill Out Bar just next to our hostel that we frequented and indulged in our usual the Tugo made on wine, Triple sec and orange for 4E . For dinner we had our left overs from last night

Relaxing by the river in lovely Ljubljana

Headed out at 7.30am by myself for a lovely walk around this village and Lake Bled while it was still nice and quiet. The church bells started ringing at 7am and I could see the church spire from our new room. A horse and cart went by and I went up to our supermarket over the road to buy some fresh bread rolls and their yummy walnut bread.

I will miss this lovely little village and lake - so much serenity and so nice to be in a village instead of a town. If I had stayed another day I would have booked in to do some white water rafting. Have found Slovenians to be really friendly and helpful.Took lots of photos of the local streets.

Mum and I went down to the lake just after 9am to catch a pletna boat to the island. The first one left from the hotel side of the lake at 9.30am and the oarsmen rows standing up. The awning covered boat can take up to 20 people. Cost 14 E

It took 20 minutes to row to the small island with its lovely church. Mum and I walked to the top where the church is and the around the island twice at the waters edge. We didn't bother to pay the 6 E to enter the church.

We went back on the electric boat to ensure we were back 11am. I bought Mum a Bled Cream cake before we left and she enjoyed it. The custard fillings light and fluffy and like a mousse.

I left Mum at the bus station and walked back the short distance to our hostel to collect our bags. at the bus station. We were approached by a shuttle that would only take 40 minutes to get to Lubjiana instead of 11/2 hour on the bus for only 6 E and we took it .We gave them our bus tickets that were valid for a month

We arrived into Ljubljiana bus station at midday and found our hostel very easily right on the pedestrianised riverfront – was a 20 minute walk. We could see the castle on the hill in front of us and then crossed the river over one of the attractive triple bridges. We immediately fell in love with this gorgeous bustling little riverfront city. Beautiful buildings line the riverfront and both sides of the sidewalk ate lined and full of people relaxing and drinking. Boats are going up and down the narrow stone lined river. We decided 1 night would not been enough so I walked back to the station and got another ticket to Belgrade leaving on Monday morning.

AdHoc Hostel is 200 years old and is on the main pedestrianised river front location. Perfect location! My room cost 16 E a night in an 8 bed dorm.

Since we arrived in Slovenia there have been no more onion shaped domes on the top of churches but we are back to elegant long spires. We have eaten lots of these while in Slovenia. Bureks – flaky pastry stuffed with meat, cheese or apple.

The city owes its architectural beauty to 2 earthquakes. The first in 1511 and then 1895. Our hostel is 200 years old and has a lovely wood paneled worn wooden staircase. We sat in a bar by the river outside our hostel and had a drink and tried a Tugo which was white wine, triple sec and fruit – very refreshing 4 E

We wandered along the river on our side through some interesting food markets where we bought several delicious yummy Italian sweets ( we are very close to Italy) and crossed over to the other side at the Dragon Bridge. The dragon is their national emblem. Both side s of the river was packed with people. In front of the triple bridge is a lovely salmon coloured church and square. They look over the river to the funicular going up the steep cliffs to the castle.

We then walked up to the castle – a very steep walk that required a few rests for Mum ! The view from the castle towers was beautiful overlooking the town. Castle entry was 7.50E Mum caught the funicular back down and I walked down one of the lovely paths through woods and beside old stone walls.

We decided to eat at a restaurant tonight and try some local Slovenian food. The restaurant was called Gujzina and in the alley behind the hostel.

We shared the following yummy food -

We had a meat goulash called Prekmurski Bograc – pork, beef, venison, potatoes, onion and garlic with Pecene Dodole ( potato cooked in flour) that were so yummy and trout (which is in the rivers and lakes here everywhere) with spinach and potato. We were excited to have some green veggies in this meat loving part of the world.

For dessert we had Prekmurska gibanica a traditional sweet dish from eastern Slovenia – dough with strudel, poppy seeds, walnuts, cottage cheese and apple which didn't taste as good as it looked. We were so full after eating so much food!!!

Vintgar Gorge and Bled Castle

I had a lovely morning relaxing at the outside courtyard area and sat at the outside the kitchen area listening to church bells and cheeping birds. I could see the church spire and it was all just very serene.

We changed rooms to the building next door as we couldn't extend our stay in the same room. At 11.30am we headed out to walk to Vintgar Gorge – a 4km walk from Bled to the next village, where at the entrance of the gorge we bought an entry ticket for 4E and then walked 1.6km to the end of the gorge.

Again just so stunningly pretty with iridescent green water rushing and tumbling down this gorge with several waterfalls. It was so nice and cool once in the gorge with massively high rock cliffs towering hundreds of feet overhead.

How they built the boardwalk that clung to the cliffs and crisscrossed the gorge is absolutely amazing. It would have been very dangerous as the water is very wild. It ended up at a 16 m waterfall

We got back at 2.30pm having walked a total of 11.2 km. Mum did really well seeing as it was hot at 28 degrees with a lot of uphill.

Yep overload of photos again as I just kept taking so many!

We bought some fresh bread for lunch and added a boiled egg, boiled some more eggs for the next couple of days, did our washing and are waiting for late afternoon to go out again.

Walked up hundreds of steps to visit the imposing castle perched high on this rocky outcrop. It cost 10 E to enter the castle and had several terraces of cafes and places to sit right beside the edge where it dropped off hundreds of metres below. The view over the island church and mountains was stunning and Lake Bled looked like a mirror.

We sat right beside the lake to have a drink until 8pm and then ate all the remaining food we had in the fridge for dinner.

Once it was dark I wandered back down to the lake to see the castle lit up at night
