On light feet
It is easy to find one’s own piece of holiday and adventure paradise in a region where mighty mountains, crystal waters and fresh forests prevail. Due to the glacial action which shaped its surface tens of thousands of years ago, the curves of Gorenjska are particularly voluptuous and dramatic. Triglav National Park, one of the oldest protected environments in Europe, was established here. The highest peaks, wooded Pokljuka Plateau, the Savica and Peričnik waterfalls, deep river and flooded valleys and lakes Bohinj and Bled determine the character of this region, which towards the east is supplemented by the Jelovica Plateau, abundant with natural features, charming valleys such as Jezersko, and the diverse history of the Škofja Loka and Cerkno Hills.
Between earth and sky
An experience of almost all shades of Slovenia: this is the Goriška. Stretching across the foothills of the Alps, extending over picturesque valleys and characterised with special features. The rainbow of the Goriška shines like the first documented meteorite to land on Slovenian territory, which lit up and hit Avče in 1908. The rainbow’s arch bends across the high mountains almost to the sea and draws beneath it unimaginable shades of emerald nature, intense history and a bright future.
Getting dizzy from the depth and height
The Zasavje is by far the smallest Slovenian region, but utilises the space and opportunities posed by nature exceptionally well. When driving along the narrow picturesque Sava Valley, one might think that the people of Zasavje would have to seek sanctuary in the underground due to the lack of space. For almost 300 years, lignite has been extracted here, which contributed significantly to Slovenia’s development.
Although giants are considered clumsy, this could not be said for the largest Slovenian region. South-eastern Slovenia offers an elegant, intertwining artistic creation of wild nature and human creativity. The diversity of South-eastern Slovenia is not surprising since, within its borders, it combines several completely different worlds. The land stretching between the carefully maintained hills, the Suha Krajina and Bela Krajina regions and the lush remains of ancient woodlands in the Kočevje forests, where brown bears roam freely, is a very inspiring host.
The Koroška shines in a diamond glow. Not because (micro)diamonds can be found in the Pohorje rock, but because it is so stunningly special in its simplicity. Three valleys – the Mežica, the Drava and the Mislinja – and three mountain ranges – the Karavanke, the Pohorje Hills and the Kamnik–Savinja Alps – make up the puzzle of this region.
Scent of wind and salt
The beneficent effects of the sea will be felt long after seasoning with salt becomes a mere memory. The sea also has magical powers within its hinterland. The coast is only a short distance away in this region. But before reaching the coast, stop in Karst for its culinary delights, the Brkini Hills for sweet fruit and visit small villages in the Primorje Hills.
What is happening underneath the surface is just as interesting as what is happening on it. It may be true that what is essential is invisible to the eye, but in the Primorska and the Notranjska the essential will be revealed to its full extent. A true wilderness can be found in this heavily perforated corner of Slovenia. High Notranjska plateaus, with lush forests that are home to bears, lynx and wolves, alternate with the plains of Karst fields, which give an impression that beneath your feet, in the subterranean world, things are far from still.
Lively crossroads of Slovenia
The central area is a true concentrate of this country under the Alps. Many diverse things can be seen and experienced at short distances, while both liveliness and tranquillity fill the air. Can you imagine how Jason and the Argonauts, who supposedly sailed through the Ljubljana Basin while carrying the golden fleece, were surprised when they sailed up the River Sava and saw the Alps bathing in the sun and the lush greenery all around?
Meeting the abundance
Are you ready for an adventure in sunny places, which invite with their diverse nature and experience? Welcome to the Podravje. Brace yourself: a menagerie of the good and the beautiful awaits you on wine routes, hillside paths, ski slopes and in castles.
Pomurje is like a flower in the hair which gives a special charm to Slovenia’s uniqueness. It radiates, accentuates and soothes but also explodes in its peculiarity. Pomurje is a world with a completely different pace. Relaxing thermal waters and rich culinary experiences will inspire you like the mellow poems written by the Pomurje poets who found their inspiration in the landscape.
The Savinjska region resembles the River Savinja with which it shares its name: sometimes untamed, then neatly maintained, playful and calm at the same time. The world by the Savinja and beyond is full of jewels, given by nature to local people to shape and enjoy. And to please the most demanding hedonists.
In the embrace of water
The Posavje is ‘hot’. Not because of the record temperatures, but because river valleys, hills and castles bathing in the sun are particularly enticing. The Posavska region obtains its diversity from the rivers Sava, Krka and Sotla, which shape its character. Many castles have been built at special vantage points, including Kostanjevica, Brežice, Sevnica and Rajhenburg, which are rightly known as the valleys of castles. It seems that water is in abundance here.
