Coasts, Lakes and Capitals
From lively capitals to picturesque landscapes, explore the vibrant city of Zagreb and the elegant Ljubljana, the emerald blue Istrian coast and the blissfully beautiful Lake Bled
With snow-capped peaks, turquoise-green rivers and Venetian-style coastline, Slovenia is one of Europe’s least visited countries. Nearly half of the country is covered in pristine forests and the Alps tower over the glacial lakes.
The capital, Ljubljana is culturally rich with an abundance of architectural styles from Art Nouveau to the socialist era. It took its present form in the 12th century as Laibach under the Habsburgs, but gained prominence in 1809 as capital of Napoleon’s short-lived ‘Illyrian Provinces’.
Lake Bled enjoys a lakeside promenade, a fairy-tale island and a cliff-hanging medieval castle. It was a popular health resort during the Habsburg era and one of Tito’s summer residences, the Villa Bled, lies on the lake.
Venturing further into the mountains the stunning scenery of the largest lake, Bohinj is revealed in the shadow of iconic Mount Triglav, the highest of the Julian Alps (2864m). Enjoy a leisurely walk or hike amidst the magnificent scenery and alpine flora of the Triglav National Park.
