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.

The coastline of Slovenia is very fertile land, exploding with every type of greenery and plant life, vast orchards of olive and cherry trees, rich, versatile and bathing in hot summer rays. Further up are the imposing solitary peaks of the Julian Alps, mirrored in the deep blue waters of the lakes.

So, whether your ideal holiday to Slovenia is spent relaxing in a tranquil setting with a breathtaking backdrop, none more famous than Lake Bled, or relaxing under the sun on a Slovenian beach, Slovenia 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 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.

Food & drink
Top

Dining out is a fascinating and delightful experience. Slovenian cuisine is greatly influenced by its neighbour’s taste in food with sausages, strudels, risottos and ravioli widely available together with a staggering choice of more than 1,200 national dishes (amongst which more than 100 different soups). 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 vary 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 favorably to the rest of the world and are an excellent value for money.
