Where to go and what to see? What are Slovenia's major attractions? Read on ....
Ljubljana .... The jewel in Slovenia's crown is its vibrant and cosmopolitan capital that will entice you and draw you in. Sitting under the watchful eye of the castle, Ljubljana has something for everyone and it is about as laid back and charming as any leading city can get. Visit a museum or just admire the world go by at the many riverside cafes, life here can be as fast or slow as you like. But be warned, Ljubljana may just capture you so that you may not want to leave!
Lake Bled and Lake Bohinj ... Slovenia's number one tourist destination should be your number one destination as well. Lake Bled is simply a magical place. It is postcard perfect and waiting for you. Walk around the perimeter and soak in the beauty from all angles.
The view from the castle is jaw dropping and a pletna ride to the island is tres romantique! Down the road, Lake Bohinj is just as scenic and a lot larger than Bled. It sits calm and eerie on the edge of the Alps and the Triglav National Park, calling out to nature lovers the world over. Spectacular. Throw in Mount Vogel, Stara Fuzina, Radovljica and Vintgar Gorge and you're set for an amazing visit!
Kranjska Gora .... Slovenia's premier ski resort becomes electric when it hosts big World Cup events and the famous Ski Jumping at nearby Planica. During the rest of the ski season, KG welcomes enthusiasts of all ages and levels to hit the slopes and have as much fun as you can handle. In the warmer months KG is a great place to unwind and enjoy the spectacular alpine scenery. The Vrsic Pass links KG with the Soca Valley and is a fantastic drive if you have the time.
Soca Valley .... stretching from Soca down to Nova Gorica, the emerald green Soca River will captivate you with its amazing colour and beauty. It will come as no surprise to find that the area is the Adventure Sports capital of Slovenia but there is truly something here for everyone.
If you can take your eyes away from the Soca, then perhaps you might indulge in white water rafting, kayaking or canyoning? How about paragliding, climbing or ziplining? Those who find the mention of those words too strenuous can simply find the hundreds of kilometres of pristine country walks that surround the region. But its not all outside, Kobarid has some of the finest restaurants in Slovenia and visits to Bovec and Most Na Soci will leave you wanting more ... have a great time.
Karst Region .... The underground world adds yet another dimension to Slovenia's geographic landscape and don't the tourists love it. Postojna Caves is Slovenia's most popular attraction and thousands come to marvel at the stupendous stalagmites and stalactites. Predjama Castle is no less spectacular and makes a great double bill when visiting Postojna. Purists will claim that the Skocjan Caves are the real deal when compared to Postojna and they might have a point. This amazing cavern is one of the largest in Europe and it is the sheer size that impresses. Equine enthusiasts will make straight for Lipica Stud Farm to see the famous Lippanzer stallions go through their paces. See the farm and stay for the show, another great place to add to the list! The Karst is famous for its Teran Wine and the making of Prsut (prosciutto). Suffice to say you shouldn't go hungry or thirsty around here!
