Top 5 Places to Visit – Slovenia

Here are the top 5 places that I recommend that you visit, in case you get lost, and stumble across my country.

Bled

This Alpine lake with the only island in Slovenia has been a world-renowned paradise for centuries, impressing visitors with its natural beauty, wealth of legend, and special powers to restore well-being. Look out at the lake from a castle on a cliff and visit the island on a traditional “pletna” boat.

Piran and salt pans

The most beautiful town on the Slovenian coast grew with the help of salt. The Piran salt pans, where the world-class fleur de sel (flower of salt) is still produced today using age-old methods, were the reason why the picturesque Mediterranean walled town, with its church with a view and cultural attractions, flourished.

Postojna cave.

The most visited tourist cave in Europe is a place where the proteus or olm offspring are once again hatching. The cave railway has been operating at the cave for 140 years. The cave is connected to Predjama Castle, the largest cave castle in the world.

And the last one, because it is in my hometown…

World’s Oldest Vine

The heart of Maribor, Lent, is home to the oldest vine in the world. At more than 400 years old it’s the only plant boasting its own museum – the Old Vine House. Maribor hosts a number of events celebrating the old vine, such as the Pruning of the Old Vine, St. Martin’s Day, and the Old Vine Festival. Believe it or not, the Old Vine even has its own anthem, and the locals are only too keen to let you hear it.

Oh, and if you are a football fan, you might want to visit Ljudski Vrt, home of FC Maribor.

    Is Slovenia the country visited by Michael Moore in his documentary “Who to invade Next”?

        Seems like a really cool country. I ever mentioned moving there after seeing the movie, but my husband wasn’t so keen on the idea. 🙂

        Yeah, it seems like one. It’s not. Free education is free as long as you pay certain fees and stuff. Which are not in thousands of €, but still. You fail an exam a couple of times, and you have to pay for the next ones you take (6 at most, otherwise you’re kicked out).
        The country is run on corruption. Like two years back, our corruption commission just resigned, because they couldn’t deal with it anymore. Poverty numbers are going up, even though the statistics say that the country is improving.
        It is basically a country you’d love as a tourist or a retiree with a nice pension, because it is beautiful and amongst the safest in the world. If you’re anything other than that, you’re just looking for a way out as soon as possible. Just like me. 😛
