Slovenia

With delightful cities, pristine landscapes, imposing castles, baroque churches and exceptionally friendly people, Slovenia is a destination not to be missed. Read more...

It may be one of Europe’s smaller countries but Slovenia is big on iconic sights. You may do a double take when you first set eyes on the baroque church atop a tiny island in the midst of Lake Bled. Nearby is Skofja Loka, a medieval castle that sits where two rivers, Poljanska Sora and Selska Sora, meet.

The country’s capital, Ljubljana, is one of the greenest and most liveable cities in Europe. Explore its art nouveau splendours, walk over alabaster bridges or catch the funicular to Ljubljana Castle. And it doesn’t matter whereabouts in the country you are, you’ll love the local wine and cuisine, which takes the best of its neighbours– Italy, Austria and Hungary – to create its own gourmet traditions from the freshest produce.

From snow-capped alpine peaks to underground networks of caves and a tiny but divine coastline Slovenia is a feast for the senses.
