This small country often goes unnoticed because of its popular neighbors such as Switzerland, Germany, France and Italy, but that is a big mistake. Its nature is equally rich and beautiful, if not more than that. It was this neglect of tourists that gave Slovenia the opportunity to keep its natural beauty as intact and magical as it is. Many places in Slovenia can be ideal for a great holiday of a few days.
Ljubljana is the main and largest city of the Republic of Slovenia. It is a city with a rich and long history, in which traces of Habsburg rule can still be seen. Of course, like any capital, it is the cultural and economic center of the country, and because of its magical and stylistically mixed architecture, it introduces visitors to the world of the past.
Ptuj is a city in eastern Slovenia, in the province of Styria. This is one of the most important city centers in the country. Ptuj is one of the oldest settlements in this part of Europe. The first data about it goes back to ancient times.The crystal clear coast should not be neglected, with all those lively Italian-style fishing villages and settlements such as Piran and Portorož.
Triglav National Park is one of the main symbols of Slovenia and is located on the coat of arms and flag of the country. Triglav peak is the highest peak of the Julian Alps, with a height of 2,864 meters. This is the only Slovenian national park, and the origin of its name is still mystical and is associated with Slavic mythology. It abounds in various types of flora and fauna and is a very important element of the European ecosystem.
The main tourist attraction in the park is climbing the mountain, which does not require much mountaineering experience. The main feature of Triglav is the famous Zlatorog, without which the visit to the mountain would not be complete. Triglav also offers the possibility of skiing and rafting, which is ideal for all adrenaline addicts.
Slovenia has its attractions throughout the year. Snow can last in the mountains until the end of June, and even July, but spring is a great opportunity to spend time in the lowlands and valleys full of wildflowers. On the other hand, summer is an ideal time for hiking and camping.
Slovenia offers many opportunities for cycling, hiking, rafting and paragliding - whatever you want, you will find here.
