MY WAY OF FEELING SLOVENIA

On your journey from the capital to the Karst, from the sea to the Alps, you will be discovering, along with landscape diversity, the capital of Slovenia, major natural and cultural sights, and destinations for relaxation and active holidays.

  • Ljubljana, the green capital of a green country,
  • Postojna Cave, the underground kingdom of Karst,
  • enchanting Goriška Brda,
  • Lipica, the cradle of white horses,
  • Slovenian Coast, with picturesque small towns,
  • Bled, an iconic island with a wishing bell in the middle of an Alpine lake
  • Terme Olimia, the first selfness destination in Slovenia and the host of SIW 2019.  

 

Pre-tour "My Way of Feeling sLOVEnia" will first reveal the Slovenian capital Ljubljana - a lively green city combining the charm of a small capital nad the self-confidence of large European cities. Let us take a walk through the city centre, which is entirely closed for motorised traffic and ideal for admiring vivid architecture and the green embankments of the Ljubljanica River.

Our next goal will be the cave train in the Postojna Cave Park, the underground kingdom of stalagmites and stalactites, we will come to know yet another face of Slovenian waters that created unbelivable features and more than 10.000 caves in the karst landscape.

We will continue towards Goriška Brda, the sun-kissed wine country between the Alps and the Mediterranean. You will feel at ease immediately as the locals pamper your with homemade wine and delectable dishes. 

Next, the road will take us towards Lipica Stud Farm, to visit the magnificent white horses. Lipizzaners are the pride of Slovenia and Lipica Stud Farm is one of the oldest stud farms in the world. 

We will continue to the Slovenian Coast, to cosmopolitan Portorož and finish our day by the sea. 

We will start the next morning learning all about olive oil and Piran sea bass... And in the second part of the day, we will replace the Mediterranean postcard with Alpine impressions. You have certainly heard of the only Slovenian island - Bled, located in the middle of an emerald Alpine lake. Visitors can visit Bled Island by a traditional boat known as pletna. The image of paradise is completed by Bled Castle atop a high cliff above the lakeshore. 

We will finish our exploring in Terme Olimia, the first selfness destination in Slovenia and this year`s host of Slovenian Incoming Workshop.
