Covered in lush forests and wedged between the mountains and the Adriatic Sea, Slovenia is a picture-perfect destination boasting sparkling lakes, turquoise rivers and breathtaking Alpine scenery. At the heart of the country, capital city Ljubljana offers charm and culture in abundance. Pastel-hued Baroque architecture lines the banks of the Ljubljanica river, while the cobbled streets of the Old Town lead to Ljubljana Castle, towering over the city. Spend evenings in the hustle and bustle of the riverside bars and restaurants, and soak up the lively atmosphere of this vibrant city.
To the west of Ljubljana lie Slovenia's spectacular lakes, surrounded by rolling hills and snow-dusted mountain peaks. Here Lake Bled takes centre stage with its emerald waters, picturesque island and the stunning backdrop of the Julian Alps. Getting off the tourist trail, Lake Bohinj also packs a punch, offering truly magnificent scenery and a fantastic landscape for outdoor pursuits, including hiking, cycling and kayaking.
