Delicious dishes from the foot of the Alps

Alpine Slovenia boasts many great cheeses that mirror the purity of the pristine nature of mountain pastures. Many dishes with dough and filled with rich fillings made out of local ingredients find their way to the table. Or maybe you fancy a stew. You can also try delicious freshwater fish that swim in the crystal clear waters.

Diversity in the heart of Slovenia

In Ljubljana and Central Slovenia, the culinary landscape is very diverse. Different types of cakes and kasha, be it savoury or sweet, are common here. Even some meat dishes have a more "mushy" name.
