Welcome to a country that embraces you at every turn with lush greenery reflecting our commitment to sustainability. In this unique land, the Pannonian, Alpine, and Mediterranean worlds converge to create a tapestry of natural, cultural, and culinary richness.

  • Ljubljana, a great starting point to fall in love with Slovenia's special features,
  • Postojna Cave, where the cave railway has been operating for 140 years,
  • Piran, PortorožSečovlje salt pans, and charming coastal villages
  • Bled, an iconic island with a wishing bell in the middle of an Alpine lake, also the host of SIW 2024

 

We will kick off the SIW general pre-tour "My Way of Magic" in the Slovenian capital Ljubljana, a lively green city combining the charm of a small capital and the self-confidence of large European cities. We will take a walk through the city centre, which is entirely closed for motorized traffic and ideal for admiring the vivid architecture and the green embankments of the Ljubljanica River.

Our next stop will be the Postojna Cave, the most captivating cave in the world and the largest show cave in Europe. While touring the 24-kilometre-long cave system, you will get to feel the magic of the underground world and experience a one-of-a-kind ride on the underground train, which has been operating since 1872.

After discovering the mysterious underground world and a tasty lunch, we will continue to the Slovenian Coast, where Piran awaits. This medieval town, whose architecture was influenced by its proximity to Venice, is without a doubt one of the most romantic, most preserved and most authentic Mediterranean towns. The strong historical influence is complemented by the Mediterranean ambience and various cultural attractions that are mostly linked to the tradition of salt making.

Overnight in Portorož.

The next morning, after some delicious breakfast, we will discover the green Istrian rural areas and learn about olive oil and truffles. Nothing better than to seize the day like the locals. If we're successful, we will also be able to taste what we'll find. 

After experiencing the local hospitality, we will head to Bledthe only Slovenian island, located in the middle of an emerald Alpine lake and this year`s proud host of Slovenian Incoming Workshop.
