Sightseeing in Slovenia

Slovenia provides pure nature and rare landscapes, but also a large number of high-quality thermal spas and wellness centres. Sport, health, gastronomy... Slovenia is definitely worth a visit. Trieste Bus can organize sightseeing bus tours in Slovenia for you to discover its main sights and to fully enjoy Slovenia. Here are some Slovenian sights you should not miss:

  • The Julian Alps: the Triglav National Park, The Soča valley, the mercury mine and Gewerkenegg Castle in Idrija. Lake Bled and its island with a castle on it, its thermal springs and Lake Bohinj.
  • Ljubljana and surroundings: Ljubljana, the capital city of Slovenia stands on a hill near Ljubljana Castle. Its main tourist places are Cankarjev dom Cultural and Congress Centre, the Ljubljanica river, the Tivoli Park, Jože Plečnik's architecture, the Rožnik hill and the Smarna Gora hill. In the immediate surroundings of Ljubljana, you can walk in the Iški Vintgar Gorge and the Ljubljana Marshland and enjoy the Rakitna spa.
  • The coast, the Karst region and Goriška: the cliffs in Strunjan and the salt works in Secovlje are especially worth seeing. As far as gastronomy is concerned, we recommend tasting some delicious wine in stone cellars in the Karst. We also advise you to visit Škocjan Caves (Unesco World Heritage) and their impressive canyon and Vilenica Cave, the oldest show cave in Europe (near Divača). You can also visit the worldwide famous Lipica Stud which breeds Lipizzans - one of the oldest breeds of horses in the world.
  • Maribor, Pohorje and surroundings: have a walk in the Pohorje mountains and around their lakes, enjoy a thermal spa in Maribor or in Zreče, and visit Ptuj, the oldest city in Slovenia - equally well-known for its beautiful castles and its great thermal spas.
  • Carniola: Enjoy Jezersko and its wild nature, its lakes and Ceča, the highest waterfall in Slovenia; or the Dovžan Gorge in Tržič, famous as a fossil discovery site. Try delicious local specialities in Škofja Loka and do not forget to visit the castle, so that you can enjoy its impressive panorama!
  • The Savinja valley: admire the Logarska Dolina valley and its glacier and the surprising Snežna Jama Na Raduhi cave. Close to "Šmartinsko jezero" (the biggest lake in Slovenia) you can relax in one of Slovenia's famous thermal spas: Dobrna, Topolšica, Laško, Rimske toplice, Rogaška Slatina or Podčetrtek. You can also visit Šentjur Pri Celju together with the Rifnik Archeological Park.
  • Lower Carniola, White Carniola and Lower Sava Valley: have a walk in the ancient forest of Kočevje (the "Kočevski Rog"), discover the Ledena Jama cave and the Željnske cave. If you like wine, you may enjoy a drive along one of three different wine routes: Bizeljsko-Sremič, Podgorjanci or Gornja Dolenjska.
  • Prekmurje: although this region is especially famous for its thermal spas - Radenci, Terme 3000, Lendava and Banovci - you can also visit the Renaissance Sobota castle and the old castle of Grad, one of the largest castles in Slovenia - with 365 rooms.
