Slovenia
The Untraveled Lands

Standing at the cross roads between Western and Eastern Europe, this tiny country offers phenomenal geographical diversity – from the Alps in the North to the Adriatic coastline on the west, the Krast plateau toward the south and flat Plannonian plains in the East. And among these dominating natural borders are scattered numerous medieval towns with cobblestone streets, cathedrals with thousand year old paintings, vineyards and olive plantations, spas and ski resorts – this is mini Europe on a platter – there is something for everyone in Slovenia.

 

TRIP HIGHLIGHTS

  • Explore the 20-km long Postojna cave system, which boasts of an underground train and a concert hall with a capacity of 10,000 people, with regular orchestras and music performances in the summer
  • Drive through the Triglav National Park – a mini Switzerland – with rolling hills, picturesque villages on their slopes, backdrops of snow-clad Alpine peaks that have given birth to numerous hiking trails and several ski resorts
  • Spend a day in Bled – hike up the Bled castle, or take a boat ride to the Bled cathedral, or simply relax in one of the numerous lakeside cafes, enjoying the famous “Kremna rezina” – a vanilla custard cream pastry popular throughout central Europe
  • Walk along the cobblestoned streets of Ljubljana - a contemporary city with a medieval heart, one can say, where the Roman-era city-centre is surrounded by the most chic bars, music halls and restaurants
  • On the way to the coast, stop by at one of the numerous vineyards or olive plantations – the Mediterranean soil grows some phenomenal olives and grapes and the resulting olive oil and wine tasting opportunities are a favorite among those with gastronomic interest.

DID YOU KNOW

  • Old Vine in Maribor is over 400 years old: the oldest vine in the world.
  • Some scenes from The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian were filmed in Slovenia’s Soča Valley.
  • Slovenian anthem – Zdravljica - is unusual, because instead of glorifying one single country as most of the anthems do it appeals to the unity of different nations. Works well in the era of globalization, although it was written in 1844.
  • Slovenian language is one of few languages in the world where dual form still exists. You just say “midva” and everyone understands that you mean your girlfriend & you.
  • Slovenia population growth rate: -0.185%
  • Slovenia is the only country which has a word LOVE in its name.
  • In a single day you can pick autumn fruits in the morning, bathe in the Adriatic in the afternoon, and go night skiing in the evening.
  • It is among the most biologically diverse countries in the world. It accounts for less than 0.004% of the Earth’s surface but is home to more than 1% of all living creatures and 2% of terrestrial creatures. A total of 24,000 animal species.

WHEN TO TRAVEL

Slovenia is best visited in the Summer when the days are long and temperatures are warm. Bled, Bohinj and the Alpine villages are cool year-round. We recommend visiting Slovenia from May-October.
