If you love nature and the outdoors, then Slovenia is the country for you. Located in Central Europe just north of Croatia, Slovenia is known for its mountains and lakes. It’s not on most of the “normal” tourist routes in Europe, meaning that even Slovenia’s most popular spots don’t feel overcrowded during high season.

Getting around Slovenia

You can easily get around Slovenia by car or public transport. On my first visit to Slovenia, I used trains and local buses to get around – both are fairly easy to navigate and efficiently run. If you have a car, you can explore most of the country’s highlights in less than a week.
