Stretching from north-eastern Italy to Slovenia, the magnificent Julian Alps can be accessed via hiking paths and are dotted with alpine villages, ski resorts, and lush forests. Along the way, be sure to visit Lake Bled, a picturesque lakeside town with a medieval castle, and Triglav National Park which covers around 340 square miles, featuring gorges, trees, mountains, lakes, glacial valleys, and wildlife.
The immense system of caves at Škocjan have been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site due to their exceptional significance, and are a highlight of Slovenia holidays for many visitors. Archaeological studies suggest that people inhabited the caves for more than 5,000 years altogether and the surrounding area provides a home to rare birds and bats, as well as unique cave fauna. The limestone caves take their name from the village above and feature one of the world's largest known underground river canyons.
Ljubljana is a charming city with many museums, galleries, and Baroque buildings to keep any visitor entertained on Slovenia holidays. To the east of the river lies the old city and the castle which can be reached by a number of bridges, including the famous Tromostovje (Triple Bridge), designed by architect Jože Plečnik. Strolling through the picturesque squares and alleyways, you’ll see a number of medieval buildings which now house a selection of designer stores, cafes, and restaurants. You can take a tourist train from the Triple Bridge to see Ljubljana Castle, a 15th century building with fantastic views over the town.
