Slovenia Travel Guide
A Quick Intro to Slovenia
Sandwiched between Italy and Croatia in central Europe, Slovenia is a scenic country with lakes, mountains, caves and beautiful white horses. The country sits on the Adriatic Sea and has a very short stretch of coastline that measures just 47km.
While the coastline is short, it was my favorite part of Slovenia. I loved relaxing and eating seafood in the medieval towns of Piran and Koper.
The capital of Ljubljana is quirky and unique; it’s home to a hostel that was once a prison and an autonomous culture zone called Metelkova that’s filled with all sorts of colorful street art and bizzare buildings.
The most iconic attraction in Slovenia is Lake Bled – a picturesque lake with an island in the middle of it. Take a traditional 16th century Pletna boat out to the island, try a famous Bled cream cake and visit Bled Castle, which rises over the lake. Another Slovenia highlight is the Postojna Caves – a 24-kilometre-long cave system full of stalagmites and stalactites.
From Slovenia you can easily drive over to Croatia for a day trip or catch a train onwards to explore Venice.
I really loved this country and hope you will too! This Slovenia travel guide features lots of practical tips and suggestions to ensure you get the most out of your trip.
