ATTRACTIONS: (a few major)
Slovenia may be tiny in size, but has so much to do and see that size is not of importance.
Sometimes referred to as the "Green Piece of Europe", agro-tourism is very popular. The diverse topography, ranging from the coastal area to the Alpine peaks, is attainable in just a couple hours drive through the Pammonian lowlands or the Dolenjska hills.
Gothic churches, baroque palaces, castles, caves, thermal springs and a plethora of outdoor activities are all awaiting the Slovenian vistor.
Since its independence in 1991, it has become one of the top destinations for travelers from around the world.
