Why Slovenia Should Be On Your Travel List In 2017

Slovenia is undoubtedly a (hidden) gem of Europe. Many travelers skip it while visiting Italy or Switzerland.

Wrong.

It is one of the nicest countries I’ve visited this year and I’ll tell you why it should be in your bucket too!

It is easy to explore

Slovenia is a small and diversified country, in no time you can travel from the mountains to the seaside, or explore forests and cities in the same day.

Passing through Bled

The roads are good and highways are spread all over the country. Travelling within Slovenia is pleasure in itself, beautiful views guaranteed. Wherever you go.

It has breathtaking nature

The nature there is splendid, literally everywhere. Even when you are in the capital you will still enjoy the view of mountains, not just blocks of flats!

And you have it all at once!

If you like historical architecture you will also be happy in Slovenia! It has some splendid old towns in many cities – like this one in kranj. It’s quite small and very colorful. There’re lots of tiny streets filled with art, cafes and beautiful architecture

If you want to go cycling, walk in the city or in the forest or do some water sports – go ahead. You can do it all in Slovenia. Skiing in winter, walking in spring, paddling in summer, cycling in fall. Whatever you want.

If you simply want to sit in a cafe and enjoy a drink – there are lots of spots to do that. Ljubljana has some great pubs, bars, parks and more!
