A castle built into a cliff, glamping and seaside towns are just some of the fun features of Slovenia--and best of all, you'll probably have the whole place to yourself.
Slovenia is a hidden gem in Central Europe, welcoming travelers who make the trip with mountainous landscapes, charming towns, luxe resorts and outdoor adventures. In Ljubljana, the picturesque Old Town, Triple Bridge and Ljubljana Castle create an enchanting atmosphere, and the city is a great base for day trips. Head out to Postojna Cave which is one of the country's most famous natural wonders where an underground world of stalactites and stalagmites unfolds, and Predjama Castle where a grand castle juts out from a sheer rock face.
Relax on the shores of idyllic Lake Bled, soak in the sight of the surrounding Julian Alps and hilltop castle, and take a boat ride out to its famous island. Try to snag a spot at this eco-resort which has glamping, treehouses and private hot tubs.
The coastal towns of Piran and Portorož boast medieval architecture and stunning views of the Adriatic Sea, creating a perfect blend of history and seaside allure. Slovenia's diverse landscapes provide opportunities for outdoor adventures, from hiking in Triglav National Park to exploring the Škocjan Caves, a UNESCO World Heritage site.
