Travel guide

A land of fabulous mountains.

Slovenia’s authentic lands are still little trodden beyond the initiated. Nature lovers are in for a treat. A mix of Baltic, Mediterranean and rural roots shape this landlocked country between Eastern and Western Europe. You can admire its snow-capped peaks, natural lakes and magnificent forests, and even think a little of Bavaria.

Wander through the vineyards, visit the caves, dive into the Triglav Park surrounded by Alpine scenery, and fall in love with this secret country.
