Its 600 meters up and the bugs seem to get worse as you climb. But, made it to the top and the views were well worth the climb. Got to climb all around the castle too and see a replica of a Guttenburg printing press in the town that used to be the castle prison. And the bird that spoke Slovenian whistled at me.
Discovered on the way back down that I had taken the longer and tougher route up, but its good for me I guess. Forget the gym, go to Slovenia. Get the best workout of your life, everyday. As David said, little in Slovnia was built for the tourists. The best sights require some effort to get to.
At the bottom of the hill, went in the church, which was beautiful and very quiet.
Walked around the lake a bit more, watched swans chase each other and children chase ducks.
I'm off to catch the bus back to Ljubljana then to Maribor.
