A fresh, green paradise. Alpine lakes and meadows, rolling countryside and an elegant riverside capital
The tiny country of Slovenia is visually stunning, whether it is the magnificent Julian Alps framing the northern border, the gorgeous centre of Ljubljana with ornate buildings lining the curving river or the Venetian glory of Mediterranean Piran. The pleasant farmland is a delight to travel through and seems to confirm the message of healthy and sustainable living that the country is keen to promote. Slovenia is perfect for those looking to enjoy the outdoors. Cycling, walking, sailing, swimming are encouraged and supported. Visitors can experience traditional activities like bee-keeping, wine-making and cooking, something Slovenia is gaining an excellent reputation for. A young country, there is nevertheless a wealth of history to enjoy, evident in the architecture and way of life.
