Slovenia can be discovered through adventure games, escape rooms, on an unusual railway line, looking up and climbing towards the sky, taking a different stroll through the city, trying out something delicious somewhere quite unexpected.
Escape into a story

Explore Ljubljana with a special geolocation game that will introduce you to the secrets of the dragon brotherhood (the dragon is the symbol of the city). In a forest just a stone’s throw from the capital you can take part in the real life forest escape, but one of the most unusual escape games awaits you in the once industrial town of Trbovlje. Book ahead for this group challenge in the Post-apokalypsa game, let your imagination go wild and learn to survive in the post-apocalyptic world.
Hug the tallest chimney in Europe
Book ahead, because in Trbovlje you can explore the tallest chimney in Europe! The 360-metre-high structure that once used to prevent excessive pollution by the emissions from the thermal power plant in the river-cut gorge today tempts crazy climbers!
Fly like a Planica eagle
Planica, the legendary venue of record ski jumps, invites you to try out the most spectacular zipline in the world! The world’s steepest zipline will have you fly 566 metres over the Planica giant hill, the largest ski flying hill in the world.
Another kind of city ramble
You can discover Slovenia rambling around with a less standard mission. Different tours and trips will take you from one spot to another while sampling beers from both bigger and smaller Slovenian breweries, stand up paddling on the Ljubljanica River or on a guided cycling tour of the city. The more curious can join CurioCity to discover the socially-responsible Ljubljana or the best photo ops – including selfies! Guided tours – frequently offering special experiences – are available also in other Slovenian cities. Enquire at the local tourist information centres.
Hops stories in the city of the world’s first beer fountain
A city fountain that pours different styles of beer? Slovenia is the first county in the world to show off such an attraction! In Žalec, the city in the middle of the valley of hops, you are invited to pour yourself several styles of beer and, once refreshed, embark on a hops ramble: visit the hop fields where hop umbels grow, only to be picked for the delicious beverage, and taste the traditional hop fare.
Through time and into the wilds by train
In Slovenia you have the chance to ride the steam engine heritage train and experience a journey through time on one of the most picturesque railway lines between Central Europe and the Adriatic. More than 110 years old, the Bohinj railway line runs through 28 tunnels, 65 bridges and 5 galleries! Its bridges boast the biggest stone railway bridge in the world and its tunnels the longest Slovenian railway tunnel at 6,327 metres. The railway line serves as important technical heritage, and a train ride here is an experience to remember. Now and then you get a chance to spend time in the company of a historical figure – none other than Archduke Franz Ferdinand! Explore other options for a ride on the heritage train!
Don’t try this on your own
A special feat already at the time of its completion, the Bohinj railway line still arouses the desire in many to attempt a feat of their own. Have you ever seen how you can play basketball on a railway line such as this?
Sleep in the treetops, dine on the cable
Who says you have to sleep in a bed or on a tent mat? In Slovenia you can spend the night in a real igloo in winter and on a platform in the treetops in summer. The spectacular meals in the sky – on a cable car or in the elevator high above one of Ljubljana’s city squares – are one-of-a kind experiences. There are still more unique accommodation opportunities as well as innovative places to sample Slovenia's culinary delights. Explore glamping opportunities and culinary workshops run by top chefs across the country!
Special adventures await also when exploring Slovenia’s major attractions. On your ramble across the country it won’t require any effort to escape from one town to another all on your own, and some of the accommodation possibilities are truly unique.
