Swimsuit up!

Don’t forget to pack your swimsuit when travelling through Slovenia’s towns and cities. You will have the opportunity to cool off anywhere in the country. You can also find some great swimming in natural swimming spots, thermal water parks and several urban swimming pools. Most towns have an urban swimming pool open, and some of them even offer additional summer services for unforgettable holidays in Slovenia. Here are a few tips on where to go for urban refreshment.

Refreshing Ljubljana

If the heat becomes too much while strolling around the capital of Slovenia, cool off at one of Ljubljana’s swimming pools. Just around the corner from the city centre there is the modern Kolezija swimming pool. The Ilirija swimming pool is in the heart of the green Tivoli Park. Enjoy the summer at the Laguna City Beach in the northwest of Ljubljana, and get ready to splash at the Kodeljevo swimming pool in the southeast. The Atlantis Water City water park is sure to provide waves of fun and relaxation.

Swimming in Maribor

Take a swim at the Maribor Island, a beach surrounded by breath-taking green nature on a natural island in the Drava River. Three pools and a slide are waiting for your swimming pleasure and a nearby restaurant is on hand to restore your strength if you get tired and hungry. If the strong sun or summer rain drops aren’t your cup of tea, you can visit the Pristan covered swimming pool or pamper yourself at the Fontana Thermal Centre.
