From the deep turquoise of its lakes to the rustling of its forests, Slovenia may be small but it’s full of natural wonders.
It’s known as a modern metropolis, with some of the prettiest streets and corridors of Europe. But Slovenia has a way of tempering its architectural feats with its natural beauties to create some truly breathtaking settings. Take Ljubljana’s Old Town, with its baroque houses reflecting off the river. Or the town of Bled, floating serenely in the centre of the region’s greatest lake. For a getaway of nature vs culture, Slovenia is the place to be.
What people say
