Whether hiking up Mt Triglav, crossing Vršič Pass or rowing on Lake Bled, the Slovenian mountain scenery is truly impressive. Towns like Bovec and Bohinj serve as both summer and winter sports central.
The Adriatic coast of Slovenia is reminiscent of neighbouring Italy. The narrow old Venetian alleyways of Piran attract hordes of summer visitors. Avoid the crowds by seeking out other port towns like Koper and Izola.
Distinct Slovenian wines include peppery reds and dry rosés. Because exports are limited, the best local vintages can often be had nowhere but here.
