Klagenfurt and Villach
With my sister’s family, we decided to make a daily trip to Austria. We started after noon. First, we stopped at Podljubelj, Karavla 297 inn. It was full so we got ourselves a drink before continuing. Now it was part with serpentine and big inclination, car bearly made it, queue on border?.
Around 15h we arrived at Klagenfurt, capital of Caranthen. We parked in Altstad – An old town that was once walled, free on Sundays. We took a walk there, on Neuer Platz a new square with a town hall and fountain with a dragon (a symbol of a city similar to Ljubljana). From there we walked around small streets and to Alter Platz – Old Square and further to the Theater. We stopped for a drink, 27 €. The city was really empty.
We moved on from the city towards Villach, and we chose a slower road on the south side of Worthsee. On our way we stopped at one resting point, some went to swim and jump from the swing.
After we continued to Villach, again parking by river Drava, for free. This city is smaller, again a circle around the old town, maybe impressive is the church bell tower almost 100m, tallest in the region.
We now turned toward home. Soon we were on the highway (vignette 9,9 €). Next was the Karavanke tunnel (7.8 €, 7.8 km). On the Slovenian side long queue for 9 km. We were now hungry and in Jesenice, we went to Das ist Valter – ćevapi place. After a quick meal in the nice setting, we drove home where we arrived around 21h. In general, nice family time.
