At the crossroads of important European trade and cultural routes lies the Republic of Slovenia, which abounds in magnificent mountains, a piece of the sea, clear lakes, gastronomic specialties and, last but not least, a friendly atmosphere. Take a walk with us through the Julian Alps or through towns and cities such as Ljubljana, Izola, Portorož, Piran, etc.

Today we take the cable car to the top of Vogel, look at Lake Bled and walk through the Vintgar gorge.
Today, our main destination is Lake Bohinj, the most beautiful and largest lake in Slovenia.
We get up relatively early, there is a long crossing ahead of us and we want to see a lot along the way. The first stop is Socerb Castle.
After visiting the amazing Vintgar Gorge, we move to Bled. This most important tourist center of the Upper Carniola Region is located in the northwestern part of Slovenia and offers several landmarks.
The medieval town of Izola is such a Slovenian Venice. And even the town is really called that. You won't find gondolas here, but you will definitely find a peaceful atmosphere, narrow streets and ancient houses. And the connection with Italy? This is obvious, formerly inhabited by Italians.
Kranjska Gora is situated in the north-western part of Slovenia near the Austrian and Italian borders. This town is known mainly due to the winter sports center, where the FIS - World Cup in Alpine Skiing takes place every year.
Logar valley is a beautiful valley in the north of Slovenia. A 6 kilometer long path goes through the valley and ends at the rock of limestone massif. It costs 7 euro to enter the Logar Valley if you travel by car. The entrance gate is situated 4 kilometers northwest from the town of Solcava.
In the last article about Ljubljana, we visited Metelkova Street and Dragon Bridge, so we continue to the center. We go along the river Lublanice down towards the square Prešernov trg. France Prešeren (1800–1849) was a romantic poet and also a lawyer. He gradually became the first European-recognized Slovenian writer.
Slowly we are leaving Slovenia. Our last voyage will lead below the breathtaking Mangart mountain in the Julian Alps, which proudly rises in close proximity to the border with Italy.
Our Slovenian adventure full of knowledge continues. After visiting the Kranjska Gora, which is surrounded by breathtaking mountain scenery, we move on to another natural gem - the Vintgar Gorge (Blejski Vintgar, Vintgar Sotesque).
Today we will look at one of the most popular and most beautiful Slovenian places. Slovenia's largest lake lies in a beautiful valley, is surrounded by high mountains and offers many opportunities for exploring.
Slovenian Predjama Castle is undoubtedly one of the most fascinating castles in the world. It is hidden in a town of the same name, which is only 10 kilometers away from Postojna, a popular tourist town known for its unique cave system.
Today we will again go to admire beauties of Slovenian nature. From Lake Bled we will move to not less fascinating Lake Bohinj where we will see also the Savica Falls.
Slovenia is one of the increasingly popular destinations, especially for those who like to enjoy a special holiday. Especially the local Alps are a paradise for lovers of adrenaline sports and for more demanding trekkers. Let's go to the Slovenian mountains in a new series.
Slovenia's third highest mountain is definitely worth a visit. Just thanks to the fact that you can drive up to two thousand meters and you can enjoy unforgettable views even longer.
Postojna town is located in southwest Slovenia. Fans of traveling and the nature know the town thanks to its unique cave system – Postojnska jama. We managed to visit this natural sight at the end of summer. Frankly, it was a wonderful experience.
As we decided to spend few days in Slovenia it wouldn’t go without visiting probably the most Slovenian lake Bled. The lake is considered one of Slovenian symbols. This beautiful lake is located in the eastern part of Julian Alps right by a noisy town of the same name.
80 meters high and 30 meters wide. So big is the window in the rock above the Vršič saddle in the Slovenian Alps. Directly through it there is quite a demanding ferrata, but you can also get up the classic trekking route, which we will now set off together.
135 kilometers long, beautifully blue and clean, with lots of canyons and rapids and mainly surrounded by breathtaking scenery. This is the Slovenian river Soča. In today's part of the Slovenian series, we will look at a unique place where the river springs.
