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.

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.
