Where To Go On Holiday In Slovenia

Slovenia’s probably not the first country that comes to mind for the majority when planning a holiday, but to overlook it would be missing a trick! Naturally beautiful, Slovenia is a mix of small but attractive coastline, Julian Alps and charming cities.

Its capital, Ljubljana, is timelessly beautiful. Striking views over the city are obtainable from the 12th century castle set atop the hillside and it’s easy to while away a day taking in the city’s many museums and art galleries. Architect Jo?e Ple?nik is responsible for much of the architecture in the city including the iconic The Triple Bridge (Tromostovje) and National Library. With the slow pace of life Ljubljana makes for a perfect weekend break.

The Triglav National Park allows you to be at one with mother nature, and the area draws hikers in their droves to explore the area and enjoy the views of the Julian Alps. Nearby Lake Bled is straight out of a fairytale; surrounded by mountains and forests, and complete with its own picture-perfect island, so there’s no better place to collect your thoughts and fill your camera.

Slovenia’s coastline is every inch Italian in its influence as a result of its close proximity to the country. Koper is a perfect example of this with its Venetian-Gothic palaces, the best example of such being Taco Palace. From here day trips to Trieste in Italy, located only 18 miles away, become possible.

Portoroz is a lively coastal area popular with tourists as a consequence of its attractive beaches, casino and fine dining. In contrast, Piran is a small medieval fishing village rich in cultural heritage and charm.

With interest in Slovenia increasing it won’t be long before tourists start to flock to the country so go now to grab yourself a slice of untouched Slovenia.
