Destination Guide

Slovenia

Slovenia is an ideal destination for nature lovers. The country is blessed with crystal clear rivers and lakes, snow capped towering mountains, and verdant green forests and pastures. With some 2500 churches, 1000 castles, ancient ruins, manor houses, a small but stunning Venetian style coastline and harbour towns there is certainly plenty to see in this tiny but green and welcoming nation.

Slovenia Highlights & Experiences

Ljubljana

The capital city of Ljubljana is an architectural delight, featuring beautiful buildings of Baroque and Art Noveau style.  Ljubljana Castle sits atop a hill and is easily accessed by funicular. A weary or hungry traveller can sit amongst the numerous riverside cafes and restaurants, before crossing one of Ljubljana’s many beautiful bridges.

Bled

Bled is a postcard-beautiful lakeside town facing the cliff-hugging Bled Castle, mirrored by the brilliant blue lake below. Bled Island (the only island in Slovenia) can be accessed by a traditional Pletna boat to visit the Pilgrimage Church of the Assumption of Maria. It is claimed that ringing the bell in the church’s bell tower can bring good luck.

Lake Bohinj

Lake Bohinj’s natural beauty is the combination of emerald clear waters surrounded by lush green forests, bounded by statuesque mountains. Those who visit have the choice to simply relax and enjoy the vistas whilst those more active can kayak, paddle board, or hike in the surrounds.

Piran

Piran is a popular coastal town centred around historic Tartina Square and overlooked by the imposing Bell tower of St George Cathedral. The town’s location on the Adriatic coast rewards those looking to sample some traditional seafood dishes.

Postojna Caves

This mystical subterranean world is an adventure through majestic caverns and halls, beautiful glistening rock formations, and the blackest of pools. Whilst it may not be possible to traverse the entire 24 km network of caves, a ride on the underground rail system has ensured easy access to many of the highlights of Postojna, notwithstanding the world’s only underground post office.

Slovenia Tours, Packages & Cruises Selection Tips

Find some of our top tips for choosing the perfect trip for you!

When undertaking any outdoor activities during the warmer months remember to bring water, sunscreen and insect repellant. A nature hike can quickly turn from a wooded track to an open grassland or open mountain scene and even a overcast day can result in sunburn Similarly that beautiful expanse of water will reflect those rays of sun.
Learn a few Slovenian words or phrases as this will endear you to the locals. Greet the shop owners and cafe staff with Zdravo (Hello) or Dober Dan (Good Day); and leave with Hvala Vam (Thank you).
Oh so European, is the token payment to use public toilets, and having some Euro coins is of convenience
When visiting either Postojna Caves or Skocna Caves, ensure to bring a jacket as the temperature inside the caves are usually a brisk 10 degrees celsius.
Consider riding a bike around Lake Bled. The path hugs the lake, is flat and well maintained, and although is only about 5km in distance, be prepared to take longer to get around as there are many opportunities to enjoy the vistas and take snaps for perpetuity.
