As Mahatma Gandhi once said, “A nation’s culture resides in the hearts and in the soul of its people.” And Slovenia, this small subalpine nation, reflects the immeasurable heart and soul of its people in so many aspects and with such diversity, one simply has to experience it.
Cultural Holidays presents visitors to Slovenia with a chance to really delve into the cultural side of this wonderful country. Everything that falls under the category of culture is deeply intertwined. The food you taste, the monuments you see, the rural and urban rhythm of life you feel, the arts and folklore, the historical and the modern – these are all pieces of a mosaic of culture that create an image of Slovenia that will inspire your imagination. When you explore a place through its numerous landmarks, listen to the fascinating stories behind them, and get an up-close insight into what makes the “Crossroads of Europe” so very unique, you’ll find that Slovenia and its people have so much beauty to offer on a single holiday.
We take you to the most spellbindingly gorgeous places, such as Lakes Bled and Bohinj, Predjama Castle and Postojna Cave, where natural and manmade splendour coexist in extraordinary symbioses. You go on sightseeing strolls through picturesque towns with memorizing architecture and immense historical importance. Some are more known, like the capital Ljubljana and the city of Maribor, others you might not yet be acquainted with, but are just as remarkably fascinating, like Ptuj or Celje, both dating back to pre-antique times.
Due to Slovenia’s incredible connectivity and accessibility – yes, the country’s size certainly has its perks – you can be marvelling at a thousand-year-old castle in the Julian Alps one day and sipping on some exquisite wine overlooking the breath-taking vineyards of Slovenia’s Karst the next. However, despite our packed schedule, we make sure your holiday is set to a relaxing pace throughout your travels. That means there’s always plenty of free time to enjoy a particular destination and let the newly received information sink in nice and slowly.
Joining a Cultural Holiday around Slovenia will unlock the secrets of our rich history and remarkable traditions within an environment unlike any other.
See you on our next cultural expedition!
