  • Visit the most popular attractions and places in Slovenia in one week
  • Choose the places you want to visit and make your holiday suit your wishes
  • Enjoy a stress-free holiday with a predetermined route and accommodation
  • Drive on Slovenian roads with freedom to stop and enjoy places at your own pace

A week is not long, but it’s enough to get a superb feel for Slovenia and to witness its main attractions. Especially if you spend most of your time enjoying the tourist offer without worrying how to reach your destinations and organizing other painstaking logistics. Thanks to Slovenia’s small size and great road connectivity, and our carefully devised itinerary, you can focus entirely on the fun aspects of your holiday.    

With our list of Slovenia’s famous landmarks and attractions, your holiday will be packed to the brim without being overwhelming. The remarkably short travel distances on well-maintained roads allow you to navigate from one awesome destination to another. Staying in comfortable, clean and conveniently located accommodations, you will get to experience each destination to the fullest. And do not worry if you want to extend your holiday for a day or two in order to see a few other places or stay somewhere longer; optional extras are always available.

The loveliest and greenest capital Ljubljana will be your starting point. After a sufficient dose of sightseeing and indulging in local gastronomy, you will head north to the Alpine region. The stunning Lake Bled area with its ancient castle, church island and other fascinating spots will keep you highly entertained. Next on the agenda are the wild treasures nestled in the incredibly captivating Triglav National Park: Lake Bohinj, Slovenia’s largest lake, and Soča Valley area, where time stands still and the pristine environment invites into its magical ambience.

Driving south, the landscape changes before your eyes as you head towards the enchanting Karst. Known for its incredible countryside and breath-taking subterranean world, the Karst is a superb introduction to your next destination – the Slovenian coast. There, the Mediterranean climate prevails and the seaside towns of Piran, Koper and Portorož present you with another side of Slovenia. So close to the mountains yet so very far in character, the seaside once again reminds visitors of Slovenia’s fantastic diversity. Then it’s back to Ljubljana through a special stretch of the Karst, where pitstops like the Postojna Cave and the medieval marvel of Predjama Castle will make sure the last leg of your journey is as inspiring as the first.
