Slovenia is known for its natural beauty. Lakes, rivers, forests, and mountains all over the country make this nation on the sunny side of the Alps a popular destination for visitors from all over the world.
Kamnik is a bustling town with a very attractive historical centre.
Slovenia, country in central Europe that was part of Yugoslavia for most of the 20th century. Slovenia is a small but topographically diverse country made up of portions of four major European geographic landscapes—the European Alps, the karstic Dinaric Alps, the Pannonian and Danubian lowlands and hills, and the Mediterranean coast.
Easily accessible mountain passes (now superseded by tunnels) through Slovenia’s present-day territory have long served as routes for those crossing the Mediterranean and transalpine regions of Europe
Lake Bled, Slovenia
Lake Bled is Slovenia's most popular tourist attraction and although it's getting more and more famous, it's still relatively unknown comparing to other European landmarks. And, in contrast to other places flooded by masses of visitors, the beautiful Bled is not overrated at all. In fact, it is way better in real life than in the photos. The images cannot really convey the clear, deep blue color of water, pristine natural surroundings and charming architecture, all combined together.
The town of Bled is best visited in the summer when you can swim, kayak, hike and use it as a base to explore the amazing, hidden treasures of Slovenian Julian Alps
Triglav National Park
The Triglav National Park, named after the country's highest peak, Triglav, is Slovenia’s only national park. Its primary objective is protection of nature and cultural heritage.
