Slovenia at a Glance

Slovenia's crisp Alpine passes and gorgeous Adriatic coast give the country some of Europe's best scenery. Enjoy it the way Slovenians do with mountain hikes and long weekends on the beach.

Take some of Slovenia's twisting narrow roads high into the mountains for gorgeous views of neighboring mountains, alpine meadows filled with flowers and little mountain waterfalls. Hop out for a hike, or if you are feeling adventurous, grab a bike and either charge up the steep mountain roads or go off-road on a rugged mountain biking trail. During the winter, consider some skiing or snowshoeing. You can find both a smooth, groomed ski trail and an untouched mountain trail far off the beaten path.

For milder adventures, head to lower altitudes where gracious city living packs its punch in Ljubljana and surrounding areas. Enjoy fresh, local food served in restaurants and potent Slovenian wine. The sheer number of the country's churches, castles and museums will have history and culture buffs working hard.
