Jezera is the Croatian word for "lakes." Hows the tourism industry over there these days?

I Googled "Jezera".

It's somewhere in the Middle Adriatic. I'll leave it to you for more research.

Here's a link:

There are Croatian tourism links at the right of the linked page. Usually we (USA) call the language "Serbo-Croatian," though the Serbs and Croats might disagree ;-). Serbs tend to use Cyrillic (Russian-style) alphabet.
So does anyone want to go on vacation with me to Croatia?? nmKristin

I was born there, lived there for a while. Been to the lake, but not on that trail (every time I got to Slovenia it's to visit family, not to bike). The title of the photo album 'Krožna tura okrog bohinjskega jezera' translates to 'tour around lake bohinj'.

Here's a URL to a site about lake bohinj with a map.

Another fantastically cool lake in Slovenia: Bled.

Great place to go, I try and go back once a year.
I had guessed it is Slavic languagecyclopathic
Sep 4, 2003 2:54 PM
was not sure Polish or Check. at least it ruled out all Cyrillic alphabet languages: Russian, Ukrainian, Slovakian, Bulgarian, Serb, etc.
Thanks for the infoKristin

What's the social climate like over there? Is it a country that's easy to visit? The land seems breathtaking. I've never been to Europe, but I hate the idea of doing the tourist thing. I'd like to get emmersed in a different culture and experience something truly new.
Thanks for the infodcdre

All of my friends, all of my folks' friends, everybody that's gone there comes away amazed. Very scenic (as you see from the pics), the towns are very cosmopolitan but not overly huge in size. Slovenia itself is not a big country so you can go from the mountains to the sea in an hour or two. Friendly people, won't have any language problems as there's lots of english speakers (especially among the younger folk). Right next to Austria and Italy so the rest of western europe is not far at all, easy to turn it into a tour of europe.

As far as trying something new, travel is great and I highly recommend it. You'll be completely out of your element, which is a bit weird at first but then you forget everything that was bugging you back home in 'real life'.
Hey Thanks! One more questionKristin

I almost choked on my coffee when I saw the airfare to LJU. Wowser. Since you travel there regularly, what's the cheapest means you've found for getting to the country in a reasonable amount of time...say under 50 hours travel time.
Hey Thanks! One more questiondcdre

Last few times I've gone it's been on frequent flyer tix. Flying across the ocean is always more expensive, but things can be done to keep the costs down. Booking in advance is a big one. Summertime is expensive, fly in the spring or fall for somewhat lower rates. This summer has also been beastly hot, so by travelling in the spring of fall you avoid that.

Another thing you could do is instead of flying to LJU is to fly to a major european hub / city, something like Frankfurt or Vienna (should be able to do that direct from Chicago) and take the train down. Great way of seeing more of europe that way too.

Lastly, pop into a bookstore and take a look at the Lonely Planet Slovenia guidebook, they'll have lots of info there on what to see & what to do, possibly some travel ideas as well.

It looks very much like a section of the Bloomington
River Bottoms trail in (naturally) Bloomington, MN.

The section it looks like is east of the Lyndale
parking lot but probably west of the picnic tables
at the far eastern part of the trail.
