Day trip or overnight from Zagreb to Ljubljana

We have a choice of doing an organised day trip to Lake Bled from Zagreb or for the same cost we could get a train to Ljubljana and then either a bus to Lake bled the same day or next day and then train back to Zagreb with an overnight in a hotel in Ljubljana. Some advice on this please? Is this fairly easy to do?

1. Re: Day trip or overnight from Zagreb to Ljubljana

For sure you will spent less time travelling if joining the organised tour. Anyway, getting a bus from Ljubljana (same station as for trains) should be fairly easy. You could also took the train to Radovljica and bus from Radovljica to Bled. It might even be possible that your train from Zagreb will continue onwards passing by (and stopping at) Radovljica.

Bled is a1/2 day destination, if not planning to visit also Vintgar Gorge. As such, an overnight in Ljubljana will give you time to explore also our capital city (and to compare it to Zagreb).

So study the train and bus timetables, and if they will be coordinated with not too much of a waiting time, go for overnight in Ljubljana.
