HIGHLIGHTS OF SLOVENIA
Cultural tour of Slovenia

Slovenia is indeed a special place. Regardless of where you cross the border, you can expect to witness an exciting phenomenon: the sheer diversity of the landscape, which changes quite stunningly. A short drive of just over two hours will take you from the blue Mediterranean waters to Alpine peaks. From there, the Pannonian basin is not very far away, nor are the gentle rolling hills of Dolenjska. And then there is the mysterious underworld of the Karst. The common feature is the green...and unspoilt land. Everything is close at hand and easily accessible. A visit to Slovenia is an experience you are bound to re-live over and over again!
