Brezice is old town near Croatia border. The most interesting sight in the city is Castle Brezice. Inside the castle is museum called Posavski museum where you can see a lot of differenct collections from different periods of Brezice history. You will be amazed with Knights' Hall that really looks great will all those paintings on the walls and ceiling. I suggest you to walk around old town centre where you will see some nice buildings. I am sure you will not miss Aqueduct tower where you have to come in and drink something.

Kranj is the 4th biggest city in Slovenia. It is only about 25 kilometers from Ljubljana. Kranj has interesting old city town where you can still see old city walls, towers, churches, old squares, castle ... Old town centre is located above river Sava and Kokra. Just near old town you can descent to the Kokra Canyon and walk around. Below the old town core are opened also tunnels that you can visit.

Piran is for sure one of the most beautiful cities in Slovenia. It is old mediterranean town located near Adriatic Sea. In Piran you can see some nice old squares like 1st May Square, Tartini Square and Brotherhood Square. All of them are surrounded with nice old buildings. It is nice to sit down at some restourant on Preseren Quay and breath fresh sea air. St. George Church is located on small hill above the city so it would be hard to miss it. From there is nice view in Strunjan direction. I suggest you also to climb on town walls where is good view on the city and around.

Ljubljana is the capital of Slovenia. It is probably the most visited tourist spot in Slovenia. If we compare Ljubljana with other capital cities in Europe we can say that Ljubljana is very small. But being small is advantage in this case. Ljubljana has its own special charm especially if you walk in the old town centre that is situated along river Ljubljanica. There is really nice to sit down, watching around people passing by and of course also nice old buildings. If you like to hike a little you can climb on the hill where is Ljubljana Castle. If you are lazy you can use funicular railway. If you like to escape from the city centre you can walk to the Park Tivoli. If you like to go shopping you have to visit BTC City where are hundreds of shops, cinema, water park ...

Slovenian Coast

Slovenian Coast is very short, it is just about 45 km long. Biggest cities on the coast are Koper, Izola, Piran and Portoroz. All of these cities have rich history and interesting old town centres except Portoroz that is a little bit more modern with many hotels. One of most scenic bays on Slovenian Coast is Moon's Bay (Mesecev zaliv) which is located in Strunjan Landscape Park. I would suggest also to see Secovlje Salt-pans where you can still see how to make salt on the old fashioned way. Of course there are also other interesting places worth to see. One of them is for sure Garden of Cacti on Cape Seca where you can see a lot of different cacti.

Bled is one of the most visited places in Slovenia. It looks like some fairy tale scene with an island on the lake, Bled Castle above lake and mountains around. I used to go there on half-day trips just to relax in the afternoon. Especially it is nice in summer to go on some of the beaches around Lake Bled and refresh in the water. In other not so hot parts of the year it is nice to go jogging or hiking around lake or to climb on some small hills near lake like Osojnica or Ojstrica where is nice view of the lake. In the winter at least a part of lake is often frozen.

Velika planina

Velika planina is high mountain plateau near Kamnik. It is possible to go there hiking from foothills or to use cable car. The latter is of course much more easier and faster option. Anyway even if you use this option there is still a lot of possibilities to hike on Velika planina plateau with nice views on Kamnik-Savinja Alps. On the plateau is herdsmen's settlement with very interesting cottages. You can visit also chappel of Marija Snezna or visit natural attraction Vetrnica (cave). There are also many moutain huts where you can sit down and relax and of couse drink or eat something.

Maribor is 2nd largest city in Slovenia. It is located quite near border with Austria. Tourists have a lot of possibilities how to spend days in Maribor. There is interesting old city centre with many historic squares, museums, festival Lent, oldest vine in the world, Pohorje hill, parks, spas ... I like to walk around Maribor park, especially around Three ponds. It is nice to sit down at some bar at Lent near river Drava. In the city you can find also a lot of different restaurants to eat something after tired day.

My country is Slovenia. It is quite unknown around the world because it has been independent only since 1991 and cause it's small country. But it is worth to see cause it is very diverse. You can find a lot of different things on a very small place. In a few hours you can climb in the Julian Alps, swim in the Adriatic Sea, visit some cave, enjoy in some spa, walk in historic old towns and much more ...

One of the most visited tourist sites are Lake Bled, Piran, capital Ljubljana, Lake Bohinj, Portoroz, Velika planina, Maribor ...
