The Best Places in Slovenia According to Condé Nast Traveler

A prestigious magazine for travellers offers places that are recommended for visiting in the country. Slovenia made a strong impression on the magazine’s journalist. The employee of Condé Nast Traveler calls Alpine villages, castles on rocky slopes, emerald lakes, pastures with snow-white horses and beautiful forests a true fairy tale.

The hallmark of tourism in Slovenia, certainly, is considered to be Bled with its emerald lake and island Church. The journalist repeats the truism. In Bled, tourists will discover fascinating views of the Julian Alps. Close to the hotel, there is the Pokljuka mountain plateau with picturesque wooden cottages in the Triglav National Park. The next place for an ideal trip is the romantic and charming capital of Slovenia—Ljubljana, which in 2016 was awarded the title of “The Green Capital of Europe.”

On the way to Mediterranean Slovenia, tourists will reveal the secrets of the Karst Plateau, such as the Škocjan Caves, one of the natural wonders listed by UNESCO. Another real pearl of the country is the settlement of Lipica. Here, at the oldest horse farm in Europe, since the 16th century, Lipizzaner horses have been bred.

One of the most dramatic and the largest cave castle in the world is located in Predjama, near the Postojna cave. The fresh salty smell of the Adriatic Sea in Piran, one of the most beautiful Slovenian cities, which looks like Venice in miniature, will help tourists restore their belief in the miracle.

The Vintgar Gorge, a natural resort in Kranjska Gora, and Škofja Loka with a beautiful picturesque old town are located in the vicinity of Bled. Maribor rests in the eastern part of Slovenia. Arriving here, all guests will be able to feel the hospitality of the city with the world’s oldest vine.
