This small country for a long time has unofficial status of a European village. Silence, peace, splendid nature, clean air. All this is really typical for Slovenia. A small area, which is comparable in size with Moscow region, comprises alpine peaks and dense forests, sea coast, hot springs and clear lakes – all that one can wish for.
Tourist attractions in Slovenia
Sightseeing tours – is not a major tourist destination in Slovenia. They are mostly interested for those who came here to improve their health in one of numerous spa-centers. Nevertheless, there are many places to see in this small country.
Without doubt Slovenia, like any other country, starts from its capital. Ljubljana is different from other major European metropolises. And not even by its medieval atmosphere, which attracts tourists so much, but by the peace and tranquility in the streets. Here, no one is in a hurry and it seems that no one actually knows what fuss is about. It’s hard to believe that in the 21st century in many district of a European capital it’s forbidden to drive cars.
The main attraction of Ljubljana – is the homonymous castle. It’s located on a hill, therefore you can enjoy great views on the city quarters from the walls.
In order to learn about the history, culture and traditions of Slovenia, you can visit one of the numerous museums.
Not far from Ljubljana there are the labyrinths of Postojna caves. Not only thrill-seekers, but curious tourists as well are fond of straying along the dark corridors, accompanied by tour guides.
Treatment in Slovenia
Slovenia – is one of the European leaders in the field of health resort treatment. Hot springs, excellent air, sea salts – all these, together with high level of service, make the holiday here not just beneficial for your health, but pleasant as well.
Recently, in addition to the traditional health centers, offering specialized treatment of various diseases, fashionable spa-centers began to appear, which offer their clients multiple beauty procedures.
The prices for treatment and rehabilitation in Slovenia are much lower than in other European countries. Perhaps, that’s the reason why both practical Germans and temperamental Italians prefer to spend their holidays here. In recent years, the number of Russian tourists is also growing. Hotels and sanatoriums even began to employ Russian speaking staff.
Holidays at the seaside in Slovenia
The Adriatic coast is traditionally not very popular with beach vacation lovers. Perhaps, this is why the Slovenian seaside resorts aren’t advertised in colorful brochures. And that’s wrong. Guests will find here clean loose sand, clear water, excellent service and quality hotels. The only drawback – is the duration of bathing season, but it’s worth mentioning that in other European countries one cannot enjoy warm winter sea as well.
Due to the lack of popularity, holiday packages to the Slovenian beach resorts aren’t too expensive yet and you should take advantage of it!
