Here are some additional places, we suggest you to visit when in Slovenia:


Do you like wine regions? If yes, Jeruzalem, in the Northeastern part of Slovenia, is a great place to go! It's not really "on the way", but the drive to this region is really worth it. It's about approx. 2 hours drive from Ljubljana, let's say. And what can one do? Beside wine tasting, visiting wine cellars and hiking between the vineyards, it is an gorgeous place to go cycling. It's not that easy, as there are some hills to conquer, but with a normal level of fitness, it's all feasible.

Lake Kreda

This gorgeous man-made lake is one of our favourite lakes in Slovenia. The colour of the Lake Kreda is surreal and is one of the main reasons, why it's a must go place in the country. In the past, one could go swimming in here but recently, it was closed to the public - what a pity! Nowadays, it is possible to go for a stroll along the lake and take lovely photos of it.

Do you watch ski-jumping? No? Then skip this part or give it a try. Yessss, you watch it? Ok, cool, then you might have already heard of this place. It's called Planica - one of the biggest ski jumping centres out there, with the most famous ski jumping world championship, taking place every year in March. Those ski jumps are simply gigantic and the surrounding nature an eye-catcher.

Mangart Pass

This lovely spot is a picturesque saddle in the Julian Alps. Among Slovenes, It's a famous destination for cyclists due to its amazing views over the mountains. If you have some time left, make sure to drive to the top of it!

The nature reserve called Zelenci is the source of the Sava Dolinka river and is located near the famous Kranjska Gora. It is a magical place due to its crystal-clear & turquoise colour of the water surrounded by beautiful nature. Definitely an instagrammable place, which should be visited early in the morning in order to take the perfect picture :) Read more about it here.

Skofja Loka

One of the oldest settlements in Slovenia is Skofja Loka. It's about 30 minutes drive from Ljubljana and is one of those historic settlements (beside of Radovljica or Kamnik), you simply must see when travelling around Slovenia. There are some lovely cafes to sit down and enjoy the atmosphere.

Lake Cerknica

Another spot to be visited in Slovenia is the Lake Cerknica. Only a 45 minute drive from Ljubljana, this lake is something special, as it is one of the largest intermittent lakes in Europe. When it is full of water, it is considered as the largest lake in Slovenia. There is something unique about this lake, nothing similar to the others one in the country, like lake Bled or Bohinj. Give it a try!

Rakov Skocjan

This is a 2,5 km long karst valley and the oldest landscape park in the Southwestern part of Slovenia. Formed by Rak river, it has many spots which are worth its visit (see below). It's a great idea to combine the Lake Cerknica with the Rakov Skocjan park on a trip around Slovenia. Good news: There is no entrance fee.

Although the country's coastline is short, it owns some must-see places.  One of them is the lovely Strunjan Bay (Mesecni zaliv in Slovenian). It is a gorgeous place at the seaside in Slovenia, which is just a short walk from Izola. Make sure to take the path from Izola over the hill towards Strunjan, so you won't miss it.

Velika Planina

A stunning place to go when in Slovenia is the plateau called Velika Planina. It's about an hour and 30 min of drive from Ljubljana and is a perfect destination for hiking. Visiting Slovenia in winter? Cool! Velika Planina is the perfect spot to visit when Slovenia is covered in snow. You can go snowshoeing (a rental is possible), skiing or ski touring when taking the cable car to the top of the mountain.

About an hour of drive from Ljubljana, there is the picturesque Celje Castle. We haven't been there since ages, but recently we revisited this place and realised how beautiful it is - the most cool part is the view from the "terrace" of the castle (see the photo below). It offers views of the surrounding hills, the Savinja river and the historic city of Celje.

Another 30 minutes of driving from Celje, there is Ptuj - the oldest and most picturesque town in Slovenia! Strolling around the old town will give you an idea of how a town, which was already inhabited in the late Stone-Age, might look like. Make sure to go for a walk along the beautiful Drava river.

    I was really stressed by Acid reflux issues with my newborn and had consulted Chief Dr Lucky. He gave us a thorough consultation and the medicines were equally effective. In a couple of weeks there was big improvement in my son and we are very pleased with the progress. We cannot thank Chief Dr Lucky enough. Highly recommended.
