Are you looking for ideas for your next holiday? Let us give you a few hints and reasons why your next destination should be our green, active and healthy Slovenia, with a little help from recent articles on Slovenia in the Telegraph and Condé Nast Traveller.
When Kate Springer, a journalist from Condé Nast Traveller, visited Slovenia, she immediately knew that a week of travelling wouldn’t be enough: “Two would be nice, three ideal”. In her article Why Your Next European Road Trip Should Be in Slovenia, she goes on a trip starting in Ljubljana, the capital, continues towards Ptuj, the oldest Slovenian town, heads to the fairytale alpine town of Bled and continues to the beautiful Soča valley in Western Slovenia and Brda, which is known as the “Tuscany of Slovenia”, finishing in the romantic coastal town of Piran. Kate was stunned by the medieval architecture, stylish alfresco cafes, and hit-the-brakes-pretty scenery that Slovenia is full of. She fell in love with Slovenia: “The charm begins in the romantic capital of Ljubljana, where riverside wine bars bring the centuries-old cobbled streets and baroque architecture to life. From there, it’s all glassy mountain lakes, rolling vineyards, mountains of prosciutto, fresh cheese, and castles – so many castles.”
