Slovenia’s compact size makes it easy to experience a myriad of cultural and natural masterpieces – all in one day. At the chic capital, Ljubljana, you can stroll through 5,000 years of history – from hillside castles and Venetian style churches to the awe-inspiring architecture of Jože Plečnik. Or hike around Lake Bled with its own magical island, explore the world’s largest karstic caves, and spy brown bears deep in the forest. The Slovenian climate varies across its regions. The northwest mountains have warmish summers followed by snowy winters when skiing, snowboarding and ice-climbing are at their best. There’s a more Mediterranean feel near the coast, with a reliably hot and sunny August ensuring all the sights and festivals are open. Spring and autumn make the countryside particularly colourful – the perfect seasons for river rafting and visiting a vineyard or two.
