Why Slovenia?
Top

Tucked into a mountainous corner, between Austria, Italy, Hungary and the Adriatic Sea, everything in Slovenia is in abundance: the majestic Julian Alps with their glacial valleys, sparkling rivers, crystal clear lakes and breathtaking waterfalls, deep forests and mysterious Karst caves, fascinating medieval towns, beautiful castles and Gothic churches and the warm Adriatic. So, whether your ideal holiday to Slovenia is spent in a tranquil setting with a breathtaking backdrop, none more famous than Lake Bled, rambling along valleys from Kranjska Gora or relaxing under the sun at Slovenian coast, this country has the perfect resort for you! Please read on, to discover why Slovenia holidays are like no other and could be just what you are looking for...

What to see & do
Top

Slovenia is heaven for adventurous spirits with a huge variety of exciting activities to suit every taste. The beautiful lakes and mountains regions offer endless walking and excursion possibilities, golfing, horseback riding, rafrting or fishing and for the more curious, a chance to visit the subterranean world of mysterious caves. The coastal areas offer fantastic choice of water sports, including sailing, windsurfing, diving and swimming or a refreshing dip in the spring and mud baths in the resort of Portoroz. The enjoyment doesn't end when the night falls, there are musical concerts of all kinds, folk-dancing shows, pop entertainment and many carnivals celebrating the different ancient traditions of this magical land. There are casinos in Portoroz, Bled and Kranjska Gora.

Food & drink
Top

With a staggering choice of more than 1,200 national dishes (amongst which more than 100 different soups), dining out is a fascinating and delightful experience here. Slovenian cuisine is greatly influenced by its neighbours' taste in food with both Austrian-style sausages and strudels or risottos and pasta dishes widely available. A real Slovenian treat is ”potica”, a cake prepared with the widest variety of sweet or savoury fillings, or the delicious loaves of bread which varies from region to region. There are also many interesting fish and meat dishes for you to indulge. To please your taste buds even further, there are some truly outstanding strong red, fruity white and rose wines which compare favourably to the rest of the world and are an excellent value for money.

Shopping
Top

Attractive local gifts can be found in markets and local shops, popular items include lace, crystal glass and speciality wines. Large shops can be found in sizeable resorts or towns. As in most of Europe, many shops will close on a Saturday afternoon and all day on Sunday.

Currency
Top

The monetary unit in Slovenia is the Euro. There are approx. 1.40 Euros to £1.00 (at Aug 2015) • Foreign currency can be exchanged at the airports, banks, exchange bureaux, post offices and hotels. Cash machines are available in all resorts and the more important tourist areas. Major credit cards are accepted in hotels, restaurants and most bars & cafés.

Weather
Top

Weather in Slovenia varies considerably depending on area, yet average July temperature remains 27°C. Hot sunny days and fresh evenings with occasional shower are regular occurrence in the mountains. Alpine peaks covered in snow in July/August makes views even more spectacular!

Hotel staff we very friendly and helpful. Small hotel with big rooms, nice, quiet and clean. Rep and entertainment/excursion organisers were extremely helpful and friendly.

Ms. Willaimson, Sunny Beach
Enjoyed all of the holiday will come back to Bulgaria.

Mr. Walker, Lake Bohinj
Our holiday was to Lake Bohinj, Hotel Jezero for 10 days, ending on 2nd July 2011. We flew with Adria Airways both ways and the flights were excellent, on time, very comfortable planes (CRJ 900), plenty of luggage allowance and in flight snacks/drinks provided. We were half board at the Hotel Jezero on the Lake side. We were going to do some walking and the Jezero was a very good base for this activity. The room was very comfortable, Hotel Facilities very good, good choice of food. The local people were friendly and helpful and in general we had an excellent holiday and would not hesitate in coming back to the Jezero.
