You Will Put Slovenia on Your Bucket List After Seeing These 12 Photos

Slovenia is often overlooked by travelers visiting Europe. Located between the bigger countries of Austria, Hungary, Italy and Croatia, Slovenia is kind of a passing-through country and that’s a shame, really.

The twelve Slovenia photos in this new blog post are aimed at your putting Slovenia on your bucket list. The country is absolutely gorgeous and there is so much more to it than anyone expects at first. Home to stunning sun-soaked beaches, towering mountains, extensive vineyards, deep caves and scenic alpine lakes, Slovenia is as diverse as it is unknown. My hope is that the photos below will change that!

You should dedicate at least ten days to visiting Slovenia, ten days that will allow you to spend some time on the beach, drink wine, go hiking in the Alps, strolling through beautiful Ljubljana and dwell in a spectacular cave.

Slovenia is without question the most “Western” of all former Yugoslavian countries. It looks more like Austria than Croatia, for instance—its houses with wooden beams and decorated with geraniums can’t be more alpine!

As it is situated at the crossroads between Mediterranean Europe and the Alps, Slovenia offers the best of both worlds. The laidback attitude and openness of Mediterranean Europe combined with the strictness and hard-work-is-good mentality of a Germanic country makes Slovenia a prosperous country that is absolutely worth spending a vacation in.

Slovenia is an underrated country in southeastern Europe, a country that deserves to be explored, a destination that has its place on any itinerary in Europe.

Take a look at the twelve Slovenia photos below and start planning a trip!

    I was on a cruise ship recently which stopped in port of Koper, Slovenia. I went on several tours and shore excursions. I must say that Slovenia really is a hidden treasure. People are very kind. A vacation to remember! I used Koper Tours services for my tours and shore excursions.
