What to see in Slovenia
Slovenia's attractions are many and varied, with enough historical sites, cultural curiosities, and outdoor activities to excite any traveller. Appreciate the peaceful country's natural beauty and diversity as you sunbathe on the Adriatic coast, go skiing in the Alps, or wander through ancient forests and fertile valleys.
Adventurous visitors should explore the wonders of subterranean Slovenia in the Postojna and Skocjan Caves, and can enjoy numerous outdoor pursuits, such as rafting, canyoning, horseback riding, and kayaking, while Triglav National Park is ideal for hiking and mountaineering.
Soak up Slovenia's rich heritage in lively Ljubljana, the country's capital, or in one of the smaller towns, like well-preserved Piran on the coast, or one of the oldest towns in Slovenia, Ptuj. Travellers can learn about the country's history and culture in various museums and admire the mix of architectural styles evident in the old town centres, majestic palaces, and magnificent castles, such as the Bled, Ljubljana, and Predjama strongholds.
Visitors can also explore the verdant Vipava Valley, where they will find delectable but underappreciated wines to accompany excellent traditional cuisine. Hosting a wealth of events and festivals each year, Slovenia is full of character and culture, and travellers should have no problem finding locals willing to share it with them.
