Mar 3, 2008
Slovenia is one of the European countries you will enjoy with its picturesque sights and wide range of terrain. They have fantastic coastlines, alpine valleys and grand mountains, which a traveler will surely appreciate. Such a wide selection of destinations will delight anyone who happens to reach this place.

1.) Triglavski Narodni Park

This park is located in Triglav which takes up almost the entire section of the Julian Alps under the jurisdiction of Slovenia. Many inhabitants of the country takes pride in this park which is easily one of the best in this category. Try mountain climbing in the area or even biking and hiking, and also, this rugged terrain presents a scenery that is too beautiful for words.

2.) Bled

Here is a town by the lake complete with a small church perched on an island surrounded by a mountain lake that is shockingly emerald green in color. Bled Castle (complete with a small museum) is found above this cordoned with the Julian Alps. Such a romantic site makes this place a natural place for honeymooners and couples.

3.) Zmajski Most

While traveling through major thoroughfares, keep your eyes peeled for the Dragon Bridge which is guarded by four dragons. Many inattentive tourists miss this along the way. This is actually a symbol of the capital city, Ljubljana.

4.) Downtown Celje

For travelers missing more countryside view of Slovenia, Celje is a nice place for walking. Indulge in its beautiful scenery and take pictures, too. You might even find some cobblestone roads in the area, or you can visit two old churches and the Stari Grad castle, too.

5.) Dovje-Mojstrana

This village is about a thousand years old which could make for a good postcard. It has terraced fields with orchards found along the slopes of Karavanke. You will get recommendations to get to this place when you intend to take a hike up the Julian Alps.

6.) Portorož

You will want to go back to something more familiar yet get more out of it by going to Portorož. Casinos will give you that craving for something familiar. But should you tire of it, you can get to one of the beaches in the area and try to get some tan under the sun.

7.) Postojna Caves

More for nature trippers, the Postojana caves is a sight to behold because of its sheer size. You won't get to see a lot of caves of this massive size. Here is an opportunity to get to one and simply let your imagination run wild and be one with nature.

8.) Vintgar Gorge

Deep in Triglav is one of its hidden gems that will make you feel lucky you got to see it for yourself. It features a path made of wooden footbridge which runs to about 160 kilometers right along Radovna River. This footbridge ends at the waterfall of Šum, and from here you can go to Bled and continue taking in the sites and sounds of Slovenia.

9.) Museum hopping

One will also find several museums in Slovenia to give you numerous collections of historical value. There are Architecture Museum of Ljubljana, National Museum, National Museum of Contemporary History, and Tivoli Gallery. Each one of these museums has its own specialties, which we could find really interesting and unique.

10.) Roman City Walls

When walking through the capital, you could run into the famous ruins of the Roman City Walls in the western portion of the town's center. You will get to see a few columns after walking past the entrance gate. Ruins like these will keep you rooted to your feet in consideration of the fact that they used to be real occurrence in history.
