Why Travel Slovenia?

 

Slovenia, a country in Central Europe, is known for its mountains, outdoor recreation and ski resorts. Set on a glacial lake fed by thermal springs, the town of Bled contains a church-topped islet and a cliff-side medieval castle. Nearby Triglav National Park in the Julian Alps offering skiing and hiking, plus rafting along the Soca River, renowned for aquamarine water.

 

A must visit is the Skocjan Caves—the natural pearl of the Slovenian Karst underground has been on the UNESCO list since 1986. The several kilometer-long system of water caves that has been formed by the Reka River over million of years incorporates astonishing halls, including one of the largest in Europe.

 

Slovenia may not boast much in the way of a coast, but what it does have is absolutely beautiful. The coastal towns of Koper, Piran and Portoroz are gateways to the country’s best beaches and are also home to some splendid Venetian architecture, excellent waterfront restaurants and top hotels.

 

Slovenia’s second city, Maribor, offers skiing, shopping, coffee by the river, and wine. Basically it has the Pohorje mountain (with floodlit night-time skiing) one side, vineyards the other, while the river Drava meanders through it. Alternatively, you could also explore Postojna Cave, fall in love with Slovenian wine, go on a day trip to Ptuj, hike around Lake Bohinj—Slovenia’s largest permanent glacial lake, imbibe art at Metelkova Mesto, marvel at Bled Castle, ski at Kranjska Gora, spend a weekend in Ljubljana, take a dip in Lake Bled, trek through Triglav National Park or uncover the legend of Predjama Castle.
