This former Yugoslav republic is one of Europe's best kept secrets. The area surrounding the capital includes some of Europe's most pristine countryside. You'll find the Julian Alps just one hour north of the capital and about an hour to the west you can explore some of the continent's greatest caves.
This tiny country is only three hours from Venice or Salzburg, however the best thing about this country is that it is so much fun with an abundance of extreme sports and adventure activities such as bungy jumping, canyoning, paragliding and white water rafting.
The country is small enough to allow you to organise numerous excursions from either Bled or Ljubljana.
