Why choose Slovenia?
The Republic of Slovenia lies at the heart of Europe, where the Alps and the Mediterranean meet the Pannonian plains and the mysterious Karst. In Slovenia, the sun shines approximately 2,000 hours per year and there is abundant snow in winter. The average temperatures are -2°C in January and 21°C in July. Green is the dominant colour: There are many woods and forests in Slovenia – covering more than half of the country and numerous preserved and protected plant and animal species. The country has mountains, lakes, waterfalls, forests, caves, hills, plains, rivers and the short sea coast – you name it, we’ve got it, as well as many unique natural landscapes and national parks.
As a small picturesque country, Slovenia makes a great activity holiday destination – you can ski in the morning and surrender yourself to the luxury of the Adriatic Sea in the afternoon. The highest mountain is called Triglav – the name meaning “three-heads” – and it is 2864m high. This mountain is a true national symbol and is featured on the national coat of arms and the national flag. The country is also known for its great wines and delicious traditional food and warm hospitality. And on top of all of that…In 2006 the BBC filmed adventure activities in the Soca Valley for its Holiday programme and included us as one of the six most attractive destinations in the world.
So why not Slovenia!
