Only a two hour flight from the UK, nestled in a corner between Italy, Austria and Croatia, this little country, only 20,000 square km in size (roughly the same as Wales), with a population of only 2 million people, boasts almost 10,000 km of marked paths. It is often called “Europe in miniature” for the glorious variety of its scenery, including fairytale castles, alpine flower meadows, gorges and ravines, high limestone peaks and extensive karst caves. It offers some of the best walking in Europe, with 4 long distance trails, including the beautiful E7 trans-European Trail (covering 4330km from Hungary to Portugal), which passes our village.
When walking we generally have the hills to ourselves; apart from meeting a few local people en route there is generally complete peace and tranquillity and you are very unlikely to meet any other tourists in our local hills, even in high summer.
In addition to walking, it is possible to arrange fishing permits for the free day (Wed) for trout fishing in the local rivers (approx €35 euros a day), or bike hire at €8 euros/day (helmet €1 a day).
You’ll find a peaceful, friendly, prosperous country, completely unspoilt by tourism, with stunning scenery. Slovenia joined the EU in 2004 and adopted the Euro in 2007. This relatively undiscovered country is rich in history and truly pituresque - view our Gallery and Facebook page for a glimpse of its beauty.
