Slovenia is a land of festivals
Slovenia is full of music, film, theatre, folk, culinary, and other interesting one-day or multi-day events. Summer is particularly busy, as pleasant temperatures and light evenings invite us to spend time outdoors. Let go of your worries and enjoy the incredible festival atmosphere all around Slovenia!
The summer vibe of Ljubljana and nearby towns
Ljubljana is the capital of adventures and it offers an abundance of interesting experiences in all seasons. This charming and lively city in the midst of untouched nature will take your breath away at every step. It is particularly charming in summer, when its streets and squares are flooded by street artists and musicians, and the diverse programmes of Ljubljana's music, film, children's, and culinary festivals also create a pleasant atmosphere.
Summer evenings with the scent of the sea
Is there anything nicer than an evening stroll through a coastal town with the sound of music echoing in its streets? The romantic atmosphere of the Slovenian Mediterranean coast and the Karst will be created this summer by numerous traditional festivals and events. Check where you can satisfy your longing for culture.
Wine, poetry, and fantasy films
Visit Ptuj and listen to some poetry at a poetry festival while enjoying a glass of wine, dance with folklore dancers in Beltinci, or awaken the child inside by spending some time with Pippi Longstocking in Velenje. Thermal and Pannonian Slovenia offers a wide variety of diverse events, which can be paired with a spa getaway.
From the Lent Festival to MetalDays
This summer, you can be refreshed on the banks of the cool River Soča – if you are a lover of metal music, then don't miss one of the largest such festivals in Europe, MetalDays. At the other end of Alpine Slovenia, by the River Drava, visit Slovenia's largest festival – the Lent Festival. There, you can enjoy a vibrant festival atmosphere, bites of delicious food, and excellently selected music. Summer just how we like it.
