When planning your Euro trip, you think about the likes of England, France, Italy and Germany. But what about Slovenia? Did you ever think about adding it to your itinerary? Probably not. To be honest, I haven’t either. After my first trip to Slovenia this year, I was quite astonished that it had taken me so long to visit this country in the south of Europe. So with that being said: here are the reasons why you should visit Slovenia now!

Slovenia is an underrated gem at the heart of Europe that has it all: breathtaking natural beauty, pristine lakes, a charming capital, hospitable locals and a small, but beautiful coastline. Some call Slovenia ‘little Switzerland’.

Lush greenery can be found throughout Slovenia. The Triglav National Park boosts with stunning views of the Alps, numerous waterfalls and is the ideal place for hiking enthusiasts. The underground caves, which are on the UNESCO world heritage list, are another impressive place.

Lake Bled is a one of a kind fairytale location. A picture perfect lake that is composed of turquoise colored water, an island with a church in the midst of the lake, an enchanting forest surrounding it and a medieval castle on top of a hill. These features make it one of the most beautiful lakes in Europe.

Ljubljana is the capital of Slovenia and also the largest town in the country. However, compared to other European capitals it’s smallish, but all the more charming. I fell quickly under the charm of Ljubljana after spending a day in its historic center.

Another reason to visit Slovenia, is definitely the locally produced wine. Slovenian wine is outstanding and doing a wine tour is a must, when visiting. In addition, is this beautiful country much more affordable and less touristy, compared to other European countries.

Now would be the perfect time to visit Slovenia, as more and more traveler’s discover the country’s beauty. The number of visitors is unsurprisingly increasing each year. So, if you want to avoid the hoards of tourists that will be flocking to the country soon, you should start planning your Slovenian journey now.

    I’ve been twice, and definitely want to go back for a third visit! I haven’t been to Ljubljana (yet), but I can agree with all the other points you’ve made. Beautiful country, and so chilled out.
