Slovenia is one of Europe's overlooked gems. The wealthiest former Yugoslav republic, it has much more in common with it's Central European neighbours than with the Balkans. Many of it's cities and towns bear the imprint of the Habsburg Empire and Venetian Republic, while the Julian Alps are reminiscent of Switzerland.

The country offers the same dramatic scenery and thrills as it's Western European neighbours at a fraction of the cost. The amazing variety renders Slovenia something of a 'Europe in miniture'.

Ljubljana is the most happening town and, along with Piran and Koper, it boasts outstanding architecture.

The hilltop castles at both Bled and Ljubljana are impressive. Skocjan and Postojna Caves are among the foremost underground wonders of the world, and the Soca Valley is indescribably beautiful in the spring. The frescoed Church of St John the Baptist is itself worth the trip to Lake Bohinj.

Throughout the year, visitors to Slovenia can enjoy thousands of cultural, ethnographical, gastronomical, sporting, trade fair, and other events of interest to tourists. The most internationally well-known events take place mostly in Ljubljana and Maribor, which are now recognized as major European festival cities, but visitors can also experience numerous lively events elsewhere, even in the smallest villages.

Most of the rain falls in March and April and again in October and November. January is the coldest month (-2oC) and July the warmest (21oC).
