Further up are the imposing solitary peaks of the Julian Alps, mirrored in the deep blue waters of the lakes.

Slovenia is a heaven for adventurous spirits with a huge variety of exciting activities to suit every taste. The coastal areas offer an endless 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. And if you tire of the beach and its attractions, the beautiful lakes and mountain regions offer horseback riding, river rafting, kayaking, fishing, hunting, hiking and for the more courageous, a chance to visit the subterranean world of mysterious caves. The enjoyment doesn’t end when the night falls, there are musical concerts of all kinds, folklore parties, pop entertainment and many carnivals celebrating the different ancient traditions of this magical land. Laughter and music spills out from the inviting bars and cafes and dancing on the streets often carries out late into the night. There are casinos in Portoroz, Bled and some of the larger towns.
