The little central European country of Slovenia offers dramatic snow capped alps, exquisite Mediterranean coastline, an abundance of rivers and streams, lakes, and freshwater springs, historic churches, and medieval castles that look like they're straight from a fairy-tale.

From skiing and hiking, to canyoning and ballooning, lovers of the outdoors will be quick to fall for the adventures that this natural wonderland has to offer. The springs alone offer rich minerals and nutrients enough to rejuvenate you for a sojourn filled with activity. And even for those looking for a more relaxing stay, we head to the coast to sunbathe on one of its beautiful sandy beaches overlooking the Adriatic. Over in the capital, Ljubljana, we explore the local culture with a cafe hop along the river bank and spend days exploring countless museums. Slovenia is a mini-Europe, offering the history, culture and dramatic landscapes of the continent is one charming space.
