Slovenia Travel Specialist

Enjoying a perfect location caressed by both the Alps and the Adriatic, Slovenia is a compact corner in which travellers can find themselves walking in snowy alpine fields in the morning, and bathing in the warm sea in the afternoon. Such is Slovenia’s modest size, holidays here are ideal for those looking to enjoy a gamut of travel experiences, from outdoor activities to culture to relaxation, all in a short space of time. The wealth of mountains, lakes and rivers entice hikers and skiers, while Medieval towns, picturesque churches and hilltop castles looming are enough to draw even the most hardened of history buffs.

Ljubljana is a lively, cultural city with an abundance of architectural styles, from Art Noveau to socialist-era, while Piran and Koper on the coast proudly display their Venetian influences. With Slovenia’s cities smaller than most by European standards, they’re easy to explore on foot. Lake Bled is the star of the show, however, and is not one to be missed off any Slovenia itinerary. Surrounded by alpine mountains, overlooked by an imposing castle on a cliff top and crowned by a tiny picture-perfect island in the centre, either take a rowing boat out onto the blue waters, stroll around the lakeshores or climb up to the castle to admire it from above. 

Holiday Types


Map

Ljubljana
Top Destination
Ljubljana
The capital Ljubljana is lively, more of a quaint provincial town than a large city, and a charming highlight of any Slovenia holiday.
Piran
Top Destination
Piran
Piran, perched on Slovenia's striking slice of the Adriatic Coast, still bears strong Venetian influences and is one of the best places to spend a few days if you enjoy tucking into fresh seafood at waterfront eateries.
Lake Bled
Top Destination
Lake Bled
Lake Bled is truly the jewel of Slovenia, surrounded by many easy trails which follow the edge of the lake, and overlooked Bled Castle, which boasts stunning views. In the western part of the lake lies Bled Island, site of a Christian church since the 9th century, crowned by the striking baroquestyle Church of the Assumption.
Goriska Brda
Ellie Marr's Recommendation
Goriska Brda
Goriska Brda is Slovenia's wine-country. It might be small, but on the cusp of Italy the terraced vineyards here produce excellent wines.
Lake Bohinj
Ellie Marr's Recommendation
Lake Bohinj
Lake Bohinj is Slovenia's other alpine beauty. Longer and more slender than its neighbour bled, Lake Bohinj is tucked away slightly futher from any large towns, offering hikers and nature-lovers a little more escape.

The proximity of Lake Bled to Ljubljana makes the two a natural pairing for first-time or short break visitors. In under an hour you can trave from the cultural capital to the natural beauty of Lake Bled with its romantic emerald green lake. No matter the time of year, in blazing sunshine or carpeted by snow, the tiny island topped by a church never fails to impress.

Ellie's Tips
1
Spend a few nights in the cosy Matjazeva Cottages, enjoying wonderful views of the Dolenjska region.
2
Visit in the winter for active adventures, including skiing and ice climbing in the Julian Alps, for a fraction of the price of Western Europe.
3
Sample Slovenia's local wine, produced at terraced vineyards on the border with Italy.
