Evergreen valleys replete with icy-blue glacial lakes; primeval forests with moss-covered floors and sheltered clearings, where the light peeps through the branches; green-sided mountains that rise up to snow-capped peaks; cascading, crystal-clear waterfalls; fresh, bubbling springs; fish-filled rivers; Mediterranean beaches with sapphire blue waters; quaint, historic cities and a whole host of other things makes Slovenia a nature lover’s dream.

Slovenia has traditionally been inhabited by Slavs, although the push and pull of migration in central Europe, means that it has never been culturally isolated. It was controlled by the Holy Roman Empire, which morphed into the Austro-Hungarian Empire until 1918, forming part of Yugoslavia until the country split in 1991. Since then Slovenia has fully integrated into the European Union. As a tourist, you will find majestic natural sights which will take your breath away, vibrant cities with a humming nightlife and a host of other great things.
