Traveling as a single can be incredibly fun, exciting, and even enlightening. Being on the road by yourself gives you a sense of freedom that can be both liberating and scary. To put your mind at ease on the scary part, Slovenia is a fantastic, fear-free solo travel destination.

The number one concern most solo travellers have is safety, and with Slovenia, you can throw that worry right out the window, too. Slovenia is the 8th safest country in the world. The local inhabitants are extremely friendly and helpful, and most speak very good English.

Our country has among the greenest, cleanest, most diverse and beautiful natural environments in the world.

Finding accommodations as a solo traveller in Slovenia is very straightforward. It is advisable to book a B&B or hotel, as some also offer single rooms. If you want to mingle with other solo travellers or groups, a hostel is always a good idea, and there are a number of cool ones scattered around Slovenia. The staff in these places are bound to supply you with useful inside knowledge and tips.

As far as food goes, you couldn’t have chosen a better destination. Slovenia is a foodie’s wet dream. There are so many amazing restaurants in cities and in rural areas that trying something local, international, or a mixture of both is a done deal.

Solo travel in Slovenia also comes with excellent photo ops. Given the type of travel, sharing selfies with your envious friends on social media is a must. It would therefore be utterly unfair not to present you with the top 5 selfie spots:

Bled Castle with Lake Bled as a backdrop, the “Ribja brv” footbridge in the centre of Ljubljana, the Nebotičnik skyscraper, the marvel that is Predjama Castle, and of course the symbol of our lovely capital – the Dragon Bridge.
