Slovenia is a small country but its position at one of European geographical, cultural and historical crossroads has endowed with a rich variety of sights and attractions easily accessible from the throbbing capital Ljubljana.
From fabled Bled in the north to second most prominent city of Maribor in the east and the colourful Piran on the Adriatic coast in the west, the country is packed with sights and activities to every taste.
The three UNESCO World Heritage sites: the Skocjan Caves and the Idrija mercury mine, as well as the prehistoric pile dwellings in the area of Ljubljansko barje; the Triglav National park and hundreds of protected natural areas welcome all visitors eager to explore the country’s natural beauties. The Celts, Romans, Huns, as well as Germanic and Slavic tribes, all left their traces in the long history of the country.
