So, My brother and I are have 1.5 days in each city to see
some fantastic sights. I do know a bit about each city but what are a few things you recommend to see in each of these cities?

I'm not really into museums, but I spent a good few hours in the Natural History museum in Vienna. It was really quite interesting. Also in Vienna, we spent a few hours just sitting on the trams, looking out the window, going to wherever. Also in Vienna, you must visit the Schonbrunn Palace; the home of the Hapsburgs.

I was a child when I went to Ljubljana, but we travelled to Lake Bled from there. If it as all possible to do this as a day trip, I can highly recommend this.

Apparently you can...

"If you are in Ljubljana and you don't make the hour and half trek to Bled, man did you miss out! It is wonderfully blessed with a castle on a hill overlooking a gorgeous lake with an island containing a church. Man was that a long run-on sentence. But, you better run on to Bled, because it is breathtaking!!! "

In Slovenia definately visit Lake Bled. In Zagreb take a walk through center (beautiful parks), main square and upper town (definately visit museeum of town Zagreb), Croatian National Theatre, Lake Jarun (which is not in the center), Maksimir park with Zoo. You can check all the details on

I was in Bratislava for a day and a half and it was great. Just wander through the Old Town. There's also a castle overlooking the river. I forget the hostel that I stayed in, but it was just outside the old town area. Something fun you should look into doing is taking a hyrdofoil to/from Vienna. It was only slightly more expensive and just slightly longer than a bus/train, but a more interesting and scenic experience. Also, go to McDonald's there and try to order an ice cream cone. I know that sounds weird, but just do it. Bonus points if you pronounce it correctly. Have fun.

In Ljubljana don't miss the Castle and walk by the Ljubljanica river. You can take a break at Cha ( or Macak. :) If you're into shopping visit the City Park. Buses are cheap and you can get the coins in every Post Office or newspaper booth.

Have a nice trip.
