Things to do in  Slovenia

Welcome to Slovenia

Slovenia's forests, quaint towns, and cosmopolitan capital entice travelers to explore the Central European gem. Take advantage of a private or small-group tour to enjoy all you can across the country, from mountains and lakes to hot springs and a medieval castle. Book a walking tour to revel in Ljubljana's picturesque city streets, which reflect the country's dedication to keeping the capital green. Traffic in the city center has been restricted to favor walking and biking, perfect for touring. Follow your guide to discover art nouveau architecture, and check out museums and cultural institutions. Slovenians love to show off their sophisticated, locally sourced cuisine, which has been influenced by its Italian, Hungarian, and Austrian neighbors, and is often accompanied by delicious Slovenian wine. Then hop on a boat tour across glacial Lake Bled, stop at the tiny baroque chapel on the lake's central island, tour the medieval Predjama Castle, and spelunk to see the dramatic rock formations of Postojna Cave. Tour the Adriatic coast to relax and swim on the beach or explore picturesque Piran in search of the most stunning coastal vantage points from which to take photos. Tours also feature outdoor adventures such as hiking through verdant forests, rafting on the fast-moving Soča River, and climbing peaks in the Julian Alps.

Tartini Square (Tartinijev Trg)

Tartini Square (Tartinijev Trg)

star-5251
Piran’s Tartini Square (Tartinijev Trg) is one of the most impressive plazas in Slovenia, and that's not just because of its grand Venetian and neo-Renaissance surroundings. Originally outside city walls, the square first served as a fishing dock, and by the end of the 19th century, was completely overrun with sewage, prompting city officials to build the public square on top. Today, the pedestrian-only plaza sits between Piran's Town Hall and Court House, and serves as a scenic venue for concerts and events, as well as a popular meeting spot for city locals. Go for the people-watching or for excellent views of the surrounding hills, architecture, and Adriatic Sea.Within the square, you'll see a 19th-century monument of the violinist and composer Giuseppe Tartini, for whom the square is named for, and two stone flag poles from the 15th century at either side of its entrance.More
