Holidays in Slovenia
Slovenia is located in Central Europe in the eastern Alps, at the north eastern end of the Adriatic Sea. Although it’s roughly the same size as Wales, Slovenia boasts a remarkable variety of terrain, from Mediterranean beaches to the peaks of the Julian Alps and the rolling hills of the south.
To visitors, Slovenia certainly appears to have more in common with its Alpine neighbours than it does with the former Yugoslavia, with tree-lined mountains, glacial lakes and log cabins overlooking verdant farmlands, and the Slovenian people are just as pleasant and welcoming as the scenery.
Where to go and what to do during holidays in Slovenia
Ljubljana is Slovenia’s pint-size capital. It’s an affluent and attractive city with a big student population, injecting a sense of youthfulness that’s set against the beautifully-preserved historic buildings. The Ljubljana River flows through the city, its banks lined with promenades, cafés and boutique shops. The influence of Austrian and Italian architecture is easy to see, and the city is in many ways reminiscent of Prague. Find out more about Ljubljana holidays
The country’s natural beauty, however, is what really makes holidays in Slovenia so memorable. You can visit the alpine resort of Bled with its romantic lake, then continue towards Srednja vas with its traditional villages, or head along to Pokljuka Mountain – a great base for hikes into the Julian Alps. Other attractions include the Postojna caves, the longest publicly accessible cave system in the world, where you can marvel at the gigantic and ethereal stalactites and stalagmites, and the delightful coastal town of Piran. After taking a trip to Piran, you can visit the peaceful salt works of nearby Secovlje for a truly dreamlike experience. The emerald-hued Soca river and the mysterious Trenta valley are also well worth seeing.
If you like cycling, paragliding or white-water rafting, these are all activities you can enjoy in spectacular surroundings on holidays in Slovenia. Discover more things to do and top attractions in Slovenia.
