Slovenia has in the past been one of Europe’s best kept secrets. But that’s changing as tourism professionals warm to this country’s natural and cultural charms.
One such often overlooked spot is the Julian Alps, announced as one of the world’s top three must visit regions in Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel 2018.
These Alps offer beautiful alpine landscapes with over two-thirds of the region protected by the Triglav National Park. The region is home to diverse terrain including Slovenia’s highest peak Mount Triglav along with wild gorges, rivers and valleys. The Triglav National Park, one of the oldest national parks in Europe, is renowned for its unique natural heritage with hikes taking visitors past sights including the Peričnik waterfall.
