Come to the city for chestnuts
While you stroll in charming Slovenian cities you can’t miss the aroma of roasted chestnuts spreading through streets and squares. Stop at a street chestnut vendor and treat yourself to a scoop. A glass of must and, on colder days, of mulled wine goes down beautifully.
Have a taste of must and young wine in wine cellars
Autumn is festive for grape and wine growers, as this is the time of the new wine vintage. They will happily invite you to have a taste of must and also try some other home-made goodies. Wine cellars get particularly merry and lively on St. Martin's Day, as this is the time when must turns into young wine.
Visit a good restaurant
Slovenia swears by locally produced and seasonal food. Autumn is generous with various produce and fruit, so it’s the perfect time to enjoy the hospitality and fine cuisine of a good restaurant. Numerous gastronomic events also take place, such as Restaurant Week, November Gourmet, Taste Radol'ca and many others.
Have a stroll among colourful leaves
In autumn, nature wears colourful garments. Each leaf is like a flower, painted in a warm shade of its own. And this symphony of colours invites many to take a stroll on the leafy carpet and take to the heights for magnificent autumn views. In autumn, some corners of Slovenia are especially worthy of visiting because of their splendour. Discover them!
Visit osmica farms
Farmers in the Mediterranean and Karst Slovenia used to have the right to sell their produce and wine tax-free for eight days a year. This is where the name osmica (eight) come from, and you can find such farms in Kras, the Vipava Valley and Slovenian Istria even today. They are usually open twice a year, in autumn and spring, for ten days, giving you a golden opportunity to try characteristic local specialties and wine.
Take a look at exhibitions in galleries and museums
When cold autumn breezes and rainy days come, it’s time to head indoors. What about taking a look at an interesting exhibition or museum collection? Slovenia offers a wealth of galleries and museums. Autumn is the right time to dive into the history and creativity of Slovenians and learn many new and interesting things.
See to your well-being
Many ailments also come with autumn, unfortunately. Be one step ahead of them and improve your immune system. Slovenian thermal and natural spas will gladly help you with that, getting you fully prepared for the colder days. And don't forget to take the time to get pampered in wellness centres.
