Holidays to Slovenia take you into the heart of central Europe, with spellbinding Alpine scenery and multicultural history.

Sitting in central Europe

Slovenia's got access to the European Alps and a small coastline on the Adriatic Sea. In the centre of the country, you'll find the capital city, Ljubljana. This one's much loved for its museums, green spaces and cafés along the Ljubljanica River – not to mention some buzzing nightlife.

Adventure central

From Ljubljana, you can quickly flit away to any corner of the country. It's a 45-minute drive to Lake Bled's mirror-like waters and Medieval castle, both of which come with a backdrop of the Julian Alps. It's also the perfect starting point for cycling, trekking or rock climbing trips into nearby Triglav National Park.

All you can eat

Over 20 distinct culinary regions in Slovenia make it a foodie's paradise. Soups kickstart most Slovenian meals, so slurp up a savoury bowl loaded with smoked sausage and wild mushroom. For dessert, try out sweet nut rolls called 'potica', or bite in to a Bled cream cake. This cloud-like treat's made with pastry, vanilla custard and perfectly whipped cream.
