With its points of interest and natural beauty, Slovenia is, even for those who live here, a surprising and interesting country. So many facets are presented within this small country:
Lively Ljubljana - Ljubljana, ranked among the middle sized European cities, maintains the friendliness of a small town, and at the same time possesses all the characteristics of a metropolis. Here, at the meeting point of the cultures of the east and the west, the old interlaces in harmony with the new. In Ljubljana the remainders of all the five millenniums of its history are preserved, among these is the legacy of the Roman town of Emona and the Old Town with its medieval castle, Renaissance and Baroque facades, ornamented portals and uneven roofs.
Green Mediterranean - The Slovene coast is covered with abundant vegetation, a natural reserve with a rich supply of marl and sandstone and the unique Strunjan cliff which ascends 80 meters above the sea and is the highest cliff wall on the Adriatic coast. Here are the Sečovlje salt-works, first mentioned in the 13th century.
Mysterious Karst - The limestone rock and the abundant water have created the Karst. At the surface there are karst sinkholes, karren, springs, karst windows and poljes (Planinsko, Cerkniško polje), while underground there are numerous potholes and caves, a beautiful underground world. About twenty if these limestone masterpieces are open to tourism.
Sunny Alps - The mighty but easily accessible Julian Alps offer four developed tourist towns: Bled, Kranjska Gora, Bohinj and Bovec with the Soča Valley. Most of the area is within the Triglav National Park, one of the largest natural parks in Europe with deep river gorges, highland karst potholes and friendly highlands. At the eastern end of the Alps you will find Pohorje and the Maribor region with many skiing centers.
