And although more and more visitors are slowly discovering this hidden gem, it has yet to be overrun by tourists and remains one of the most inexpensive destinations in Europe.
Outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers who book flights to Slovenia will find a wealth of activities awaiting them. In summer, the choices are endless from canoeing and kayaking to white water rafting, while in winter skiing and snowboarding are on offer. Self-proclaimed foodies and wine connoisseurs will also have lots to keep them busy; Slovenia has more than 40,000 wineries in Podravje, Posavje and Primorska and some of the best seafood from the Adriatic can be found in the seaside resort of Piran.
Depending upon your location in Slovenia, you will encounter one of three different climates. The mountains have an Alpine climate, the coast is Mediterranean, and the north-east lowlands have a continental climate. The average temperature is more than 20 degrees in July, and about zero degrees in January.
Driving is the best way to get around the country. Some visitors fly into Trieste, Italy, rent a car at the airport and drive through the border. Otherwise the major car hire companies are located in the Ljubljana airport terminal.
Slovenia does have an extensive and reliable train service – Intercity (“IC”) trains – is the fast option while potniski is the slower one. Tickets can be purchased at the station at the time of departure.

Visit the historical, antiwar museum in Kobarid which highlights the events on the Isonzo front between May 1915 and November 1917.
Although most visitors have Lake Bled on their sightseeing lists, Lake Bohinj is equally as picturesque but with fewer crowds than Bled. While there, visit the museums and historical churches or partake in some active pursuits including kayaking and mountain biking.
One attraction that really can’t be missed is a visit to the Unesco listed Skocjan Caves in the Kras region of southwest Slovenia. Inside the limestone caves you’ll find underground passages, 200 metre-deep caves and cascading waterfalls.
Travel back to medieval times and take a trip to Ljubljana Castle dating back to the 16th-century. For a spectacular view of the city climb up the 95 iron steps to the top of Pentagonal Tower and observe the city and country-side from 360 degrees.
