A common local joke in Slovenia is that tourist often confuse Slovenia with Slovakia, which is probably a pretty accurate joke. In case you have the same, common confusion that I had as well, Slovenia is just south of Austria and used to be part of Yugoslavia while Slovakia is south of Poland and used to be part of Czechoslovakia. We first made our way to the hard to spell/pronounce capital city of Slovenia, Ljbuljana. Ljublanja was a surprisingly quaint and cool city full of cafes, trendy bars and a very funky neighborhood decked out in odd art and graffiti. They are also obsessed with dragons in the city...dragons are everywhere, including on their local beer bottles. But the real gem of Slovenia is the UNESCO heritage caves in Skocjan.
