Planning your trip to Slovenia, but not so sure about which are the best places to visit?

What to visit in Slovenia?

And make no mistake, despite being a small country, Slovenia is full of natural wonders; historical cities; resorts and spas; wineries and casinos.

Ljubljana

In the center of the country visit the charming capital, Ljubljana. It is the largest city in Slovenia, with about 280 thousand inhabitants. Ljubljana is a flat, delightful city for walking. In the historic center forbidden the traffic of cars and buses. Only small authorized vehicles that help seniors can circulate. Right in the middle of the historical center, you can see the river Ljubljana. If you have time take the boat trip down the river. It’s a very quiet tour that gives a different perspective of what is like to live in the capital of this small country. Strolling through the center you will discover a lot of shops with local products. Handicrafts; clothing; thrift stores; souvenir; honey; lavender; sea salt; as well as several cafes and restaurants. Will be difficult to choose only one.

Maribor

The second largest city in Slovenia is Maribor, with approximately 95.000 inhabitants. The city is located in a famous region of wine production and several spas. Some of them are Rogaška Slatina, Radenci, Čatež ob Savi, Dobrna and Moravske Toplice. Maribor is also known for the Maribor Pohorje ski resort. Which in January hosts the Women’s Slalom competitions and the Giant Slalom of the Alpine Skiing World Cup, also known as The Golden Fox. For the more adventurous Maribor also has several sports parks. Some of them are the Adrenaline Park Pohorje (Park Adrenalinski Pohorje); Pohorje Bike Park; and Betnava Adventure Park (Pustolovski Park Betnava).

Stunning Nature

Slovenia has some incredible nature. From beautiful caves that hide endangered species to amazing lakes with natural islands, surrounded by mountains.

Lake Bled

The charming Lake Bled is World famous for having a natural island right in the center of the lake, with a picturesque church. The small church can only be visited after facing 100 steps, but it’s worth! The Bled Castle, at the top of the hill, is also a must for anyone visiting the city. It is a very nice castle, with the most beautiful view of the lake. It has museums, a restaurant/cafe, and very interesting facilities!

Postojna Caves

Descending towards the Karst plateau, the country’s coastline, be sure to visit the Postojna Caves, one of the most famous in Europe. Make a stop also for the Predjama Castle. For those who are fans of caves and who like to visit unusual places, it is also worth visiting the Škocjan Caves. Listed by UNESCO as World Natural and Cultural Heritage since 1986. Continuing towards the sea, you will find the Slovenian Istria. Visit the small town of Piran and, if it is summer, enjoy your sunbathing time in Portorož.

Triglav National Park

In the north-western corner of the country is the Triglav National Park. It is the country’s only national park. Almost in the middle of the park is Mount Triglav, the highest peak of the Julian Alps, a treat for those who love outdoor walks and adventure.

Slovenian Weather

In Ljubljana, the average temperature in January is 0 °C (32 °F), during winter. Snow falls often and fogs are also frequent in the region, bringing intense frosts.

At summer the average temperature in the capital is 21 °C (70 °F) in July. Rainfall is abundant during the whole year, in fact, this is one of the rainiest capitals in Europe. So during summer, you can count on afternoon thunderstorms, although the sun also appears frequently. On the high summer season can happen some short heat waves, with peaks of 35 °C (95 °F). The sun in Ljubljana is rarely seen in winter, while in the summer it shines quite often, though not as often as along the coast.

The area closer to the sea can be described as the transitional Mediterranean climate. So, winter is quite mild in cities such as Portorož, Piran, Izola, Koper. The average temperature in January in this region is around 5/6 °C (41/43 °F). But, as is common in the Balkans, this area is exposed to a very strong and cold wind, Bura. When Bura, a cold furious wind, blows the temperature undergoes sudden drops. Snowfall in this area is rare.

On the other hand, rainfall in Portorož is fairly abundant and well distributed throughout the year. So summer rains, like thunderstorms can be expected. However, in this region the rainiest season is autumn.

The sea temperature is high and great for swimming in July and August, and sometimes even in September.
