The Essential
At the foot of the Julian Alps and stretching as far as the sparkling Mediterranean coast, the tiny country of Slovenia is rich in diversity.
What do the pristine Alpine landscapes of Triglav National Park and the Italian flavour of the seaside resorts have in common? Between a descent of the rapids of the Soča and observing the priceless frescoes of the church of Saint Trinity? None, other than Slovenia offers them all.
Still greatly covered in forest, this country boasts outstanding natural parks, striking mountain lakes, such as Bled and countless breathtaking Karst grottoes. It is heaven on earth for nature lovers.
The country is also proud of its cultural heritage. Its history and melting pot of Slav, Hungarian, Romanesque and German cultures have given rise to an amazing architecture. Explore not only the ramparts of the troglodyte castle of Predjama, but the Secession facades of the peaceful capital of Ljubljana. Wander through the medieval towns of Ptuj and Skofja Loka, safe in the knowledge that their modest proportions and welcoming inhabitants will make you feel at home. Slovenia is full of unforgettable surprises and encounters.
