Get to Know Slovenia – A true paradise on earth with snow-capped mountains, aquamarine streams, and a coastline akin to Venice, Slovenia’s natural treasures are enhanced by incredible architecture, a charming culture, and mouth-watering cuisine.
The natural beauty of Slovenia is highlighted by such sights as the Julian Alps and the underground cave systems at Postojna and Skocjan. Emerald seas hugged by the pristine Adriatic coastline and you suddenly realize – Slovenia is a destination you can’t believe never made it on your list – till now.
The climate is an enduing blend of warm, Mediterranean-style breezes all the way to the Alps’ foothills, where you’ll see snow falling even in mid-summer. More than half of the country is covered in forests, making its claim of being a green country just that much more punctuated.
Slovenia is the true outdoorsman’s destination. Local residents enjoy being active on holidays and they’re not shy about it – in fact, they’ll ask you to join in! Some even expect that you will. But this is not about being pushy. It’s because Slovenian’s are in love with the natural beauty of their country and they just want to share the love. Whether you enjoy high-adrenaline activities like white water rafting, or you want to slow the pace a bit and go horseback riding or hot air ballooning, you’ll find something to enjoy about Slovenia. And if all you really want to do is bathe in the sun with a cocktail in hand, the beaches along the Adriatic Sea have a spot reserved just for you.
No visit to another country is complete without checking out the historical treasures it offers. In fact, one of the most iconic of treasures in Slovenia is at Lake Bled. On the tiny island in the lake lies a baroque chapel. Higher up on the island is a dramatically appealing castle. The combination of views at Lake Bled create a harmonious photo opportunity. Architecture around the region includes harbor towns reminiscent of Venice, rustic farmlands, and Gothically inspired cathedrals throughout the Alps.
With such a vibrant culture and incredible natural surroundings, you’ll be glad you came.
