    Slovenia

    Major Tourist Attractions: Postojna Cave, Julian Alps, Triglav, Lake Bled, Triglav National Park

    Although it was a part of the former Yugoslavia, Slovenia achieved independence with a short 10-day war, escaping much of the carnage that decimated its neighbors, Bosnia and Croatia.

    If Disney designed a European country, it would look something like Slovenia. With a cotton candy-colored capital city, majestic snow-topped mountains and small seaside towns that might as well be in Italy, it has almost everything visitors could want, all in a state the size of Massachusetts.

    Although it was a part of the former Yugoslavia, Slovenia achieved independence with a short 10-day war, escaping much of the carnage that decimated its neighbors, Bosnia and Croatia. As a result, Slovenia is cheerful, wealthy and clean, a thoroughly modern Central European nation. It has a well run train network and established tourism infrastructure. As part of the European Union, commerce runs on the Euro, making travel very easy. Most people speak English. The only travel drawback is that prices are significantly steeper here than in the rest of the Balkans.

    Although small, Slovenia has a lot to offer visitors. Most tourism centers around the adorable capital city, Ljubljana, and branches out in all directions. To the northeast: the Julian Alps and famous Lake Bled, to the west: wine country and Mount Triglev and to the south: karst caves and a tiny sliver of Adriatic coast line.

    Experiences that can only be had in Slovenia include:

    • Take a rowboat to the tiny island in the middle of beautiful Lake Bled.
    • Visit Ljubljana Castle and learn about its fierce dragon mascot.
    • Explore the vast underground karst caves of Postojna and Škocjan.
    • Immerse yourself in the gorges, waterfalls and trails of Triglav National Park.
    • Sample Slovenia's version of cured ham, kraški pršut.
    • Drink sweet, local wines.
    • Observe signs written in both Italian and Slovenian in the port city of Piran.
