Good things come in small packages and Slovenia is no exception. This compact, perfectly packaged destination, offers the visitor a gentle holiday filled with authentic charm, wonderful architecture and rich tradition or, if you prefer, a lively, sporty, action-packed outward bound experience.
Picture postcard Lake Bled and the larger Lake Bohinj are very popular tourist areas both serene and pristine as is the gorgeous Soca Valley. Tourists flock to the Karst region to see the stunning underground landscape of Postojna and Skocjan Caves. In the area you may like to visit an equine attraction, the Lipica Stud Farm, famous for its white Lippanzer stallions. The country has a rich wine tradition and the Karst is known for producing Teran Wine and Prosciutto Ham (Prsut) so remember to sample a little bit of everything while you are there. Ornate Venetian-inspired architecture attracts visitors to the photogenic resort town of Piran on the Slovene coast, and Slovenia’s oldest and most historic town, Ptuj, contains remnants from its roman and medieval past. The capital, Ljubljana, is a culturally appealing city with a vibrant atmosphere best soaked up from the riverside bars and cafes.
Slovenia offers fabulous adventure sports and outdoor recreation for all the family: climbing, hiking, paragliding, horse-riding, it’s all here. In the mountains there are over twenty ski resorts, best known Kranjska Gora and Planica, one of the world’s top ski-jumping locations. The fantastic, fast-flowing Soca River offers some of Europe’s best rafting, canyoning and kayaking and boundless amounts of foaming fun!
A little gem in Europe’s eclectic array of beautiful locations to visit. Feel like some free living, free thinking, fresh air and fine food? Feel better, feel Slovenia.
