With its snow-capped mountains and stunning natural landscapes, enhanced by charming architecture and culture, Slovenia is a low-key but very appealing holiday destination.
Slovenia is at its best in the summer months, when the full range of the country’s highlights are open. With a number of big summer festivals and the mountains coming alive with wild flowers, it’s definitely a beautiful time of year. But don’t ignore the spring and autumn when hotel rates, flight prices and visitor numbers are significantly lower.

Slovenia flights are available from a number of different carriers, including:
Slovene Railways, SZ, have a network that covers most of the main tourist destinations, although sometimes routes are not always as direct as you may wish. However, trains are generally cheaper than buses and discounts are available at weekends.
Some destinations not served by train, like Piran, can be accessed by bus or by car rental.
Lake Bled is probably Slovenia’s best-known attraction, and for good reason. This alpine resort is famed for its picturesque setting and cave network. It’s little wonder people have been coming here to visit for over 900 years, as some local cave ‘graffiti’ bears out.
The capital of Ljubljana is a small but charming city of colourful houses, cobbled streets and a youthful cultural and nightlife scene.
Head for the mountains of the Julian Alps for cycling, hiking, views and an increasingly popular ski destination.
British nationals do not need a visa for stays in Slovenia but your passport must be valid for the duration of your stay. Roads are generally safe but you must pay and display for road tolls before you travel.
