A great place to start discovering Slovenia is the stunning Lake Bled (Lesce Bled). The lake and the castle overlooking it can be found in the northeast of the country, close to the borders of Italy and Austria. Take a boat trip to Bled Island and visit the charming Baroque church there.
Right next to the lake you'll find the Triglav National Park. It’s the perfect place to go hiking and enjoy beautiful mountain scenery with some impressive waterfalls. If you’re into extreme sports such as rafting and paragliding, Soča Valley is the place for you!
The old Mediterranean city of Piran is one of Slovenia’s biggest tourist attractions. Climb the hill above Piran to visit St. George’s Church and look out over the Adriatic Sea. From here, you’ll also have a good view of the Walls of Piran and the city’s narrow, medieval streets.
Piran is an excellent place to unwind and watch the boats roll into the harbor. Go for a drink on Tartini Square, or strap on your scuba tanks and discover the underwater life in the Gulf of Piran.
The train will take you as far as Koper, where you can catch a bus to Piran. This journey should take you 30 minutes at most.
