From the Mountaims to the Sea

SLOVENIA HAS IT ALL

This journey has taken us through river valleys, over mountain passes and eventually to the Adriatic coast. We followed the Mur River, then the Drava and Soca River to Lake Bled and then did a days ride to exquisite Lake Bohinji. We took a well earned 4 day rest in Ljubljana before riding on to see the spectacular caves at Postonja and Divaka and now after many hills and dales, we are in Piran on the Adreiatic coast.

The Russia Chapel

On the road to Vrisc Pass, the highest pass in Slovenia. This Orthodox Chapel was built to commemorate the hundreds of Russian POWs who died during the construction of the road built to provide an uninterrupted supply line to troops on the front in 1915.

Postonja Caves - 25 km in length with 5 km open to.the public. A train runs for 2 kms into the depths.

Photography was not permitted in the Divaka cave system. This is the exit

We left Divaka and headed to the coastal town of Piran a beautiful port city on Slovenia's small coastline. The ride included some lovely downhill sections, some rail trail and tunnels.. We stopped in the Italian port city, Trieste, for lunch which was lucky as we need sustenance for the ride to Piran, there were more hills waiting for us.🚵‍♀️

From here we head to Istria, Croatia, famed for it's white wines. It will be hard to beat the wines we have savored so far!
