Despite being younger than most of us at Original Travel,
Slovenia has a lot to shout about: the Alps, the Med (well, a
sliver of the Adriatic coast) and more beautiful lakes and forests
than you can shake a stick at. Wooden jokes aside, Slovenia is
poised to become one of Europe's hottest new destinations. As you
can probably tell, we're excited.
Highlights include the bite-sized and near unpronounceable
capital Ljubljana; the Julian and the Kamnik-Savinja Alps
(particularly the Triglav National Park) with their beautiful lakes
(including Lake Bled, among the prettiest in Europe), gorges and
walking trails, and a coastline bordering Istria with a fascinating
Venetian heritage. Speaking of Istria, Slovenia is itself a foodie
destination of note, with some excellent wines to sample in Styria
and beyond. Sold? You should be.
