Slovenia: Photo Diary

headercrop

We’ve visited Slovenia twice, once for the Easter weekend, and another time en route to Croatia from Czech Republic. It’s truly a beautiful country, containing the aquamarine Soča river, the Julian Alps, charming old towns, green countryside and friendly, kind people. Here are some of the photos we took along the way.

Soča River valley and Tolmin gorge

This river is known as the Emerald beauty, and it’s not hard to see why. We made a quick stop at the Tolmin gorge driving back from Croatia through Slovenia, and on our Easter trip to Slovenia we stopped at another point on the river for some hiking.

A rainy day in Piran

We visited the coastal town of Piran over Easter in 2015. it was a rainy spring day but it’s a beautiful place and it’d be great to come back for a dip in summer.

Lake Bled

A visit to Lake Bled castle taught us a little bit about the history of the area.

When in Ljubiljana over an Easter weekend one year, we took a walk up to the castle for great views of the surrounding town. We also visited the local market and saw some traditional dancing.

Caves

Slovenia has lots of caves. We paid a quick visit to one but would love to go back and explore them a bit more.
