As the most westernized of the former Yugoslav states, Slovenia is a truly marvelous destination for a getaway. Here, one finds some of nature’s most beautiful offerings along with an endearing, small town feel throughout the country, even within the capital city of Ljubljana. Even Roman ruins can be found here, dating back to the Roman town of Emona .The unspoiled natural wonders of Slovenia afford plenty of opportunities for the curious adventurer: sparkling lakes, such as Lake Bled, in shades of turquoise and emerald; magnificent caves, including the Skocjan caves, located on the Slovene coast in the Karst region, where a natural bridge spans the largest underground canyon in the world; and of course the Julian Alps, home of the Triglav National Park, where the views while hiking are utterly magnificent. In addition to its wondrous caves, the Slovenian coast also contains the historically rich medieval towns of Piran, Izola and Koper and the resort of Portorož offering a wide range of events and entertainment.
Slovenia’s capital city, Ljubljana is a culturally rich haven for art, hosting a variety of theaters, museums, galleries, along with one of the world’s oldest philharmonic academies; here during the summer, festivals are held, nearly daily. The Baroque, Art Nouveau and medieval styles of cosmopolitan Ljubljana create a uniquely warm atmosphere that is only enhanced by the city’s numerous fine cafes and restaurants which serve the most delicious offerings, from smooth and creamy gelato to incredibly unique Slovenian wines and beers. Beauty and surprises wait around every corner in the surprisingly enchanting, culturally charming country of Slovenia.
