Little has been said of this small European country, however, it keeps a great natural beauty, it is one of the most beautiful countries you can visit in Europe, not so much for its history or political relevance as for its natural contrasts. It is a place brimming with life thanks to the impressing mountains, long meadows and forests composing this small land area.
Slovenia is among Italy, Austria, Hungary and Croatia, and we can say it has a bit of each country surrounding it. The coast is washed by the Adriatic Sea and the Gulf of Trieste, which gives it a very distinctive Mediterranean feeling. The Adriatic Sea (Jadransko morje in Slovenian) helps the coastal climate not to resemble the prevailing climate in central Europe, this contributes to warm summers and winters not so cold as in the interior. Another advantage of the coast are its many tourist offers, its coastal towns enjoy a busy summer, being visited specially by Italians intending to escape the hustle and relax in summer.
Another Slovenian wonder are the Škocjan Caves, which in 1986 received the consideration of unique place from Unesco. Its location in the Kras region gave its name to this type of formations created by the erosion of underground rivers that form sinkholes. The set covers a network of cavities that extend over more than six kilometres long, about two hundred metres deep, forming caves, waterfalls and one of the largest underground vaults ever discovered, the Martel room, which has 146 metres high, 120 wide and 300 long.
Vintgar Gorges, other natural beauties of the country, are located four kilometres from Bled. It has become one of the biggest tourist attractions in Slovenia, and it is understandably watching this beautiful place. It is a gorge along which turquoise waters flow between the narrow walls of the hills Hom and Borst. Along the walk through the gorge you can enjoy watching the lush vegetation that fills with colour the banks of the river in summer, the intense green of the vegetation is mixed with green and blue colours of the river, creating a very pleasant place to enjoy this atmosphere. As we walk we go from side to side of the gorge through its many wooden bridges until we reach the end of the road, with an amazing ending in the Cascade Sum.
Another advantage of the country is that it belongs to the European Union, this means that there is freedom of transit and there are no boundaries, so you can visit many major European cities and rent a car to spend a few days in Slovenia. We can say that Slovenia hides many jewels that have not been discovered yet, so take it into account for your next trip and enjoy discovering new places.
