  • It is very nice museum in a wonderful environment. But this museum is NOT in Ljubljana , but about 20 kilometers to the south 
  • Returning from Ljubljana to Italy, we stopped in Vrhinika, about 15/20 km. Reading the Guide, we decided to go see the Charterhouse of Bistra. Inside is housed the Museum of technology that until Monday so we only did the rounds outside. The Park is really nice: trails, wooden bridges over streams, pond and the chance to watch some old pieces of industrial machinery. Really a nice surprise. If you're nearby in Ljubljana, a ride to Bistra.

  • It is located half an hour from Ljubljana, but it shouldn't be missed. Me and my family spend a quality time there, so it could be interesting even for the young children. You'll need at least 2-3 hours for the visit.
