In Slovenia, a small and densely forested nation, you’ll find an extreme amount of natural beauty, such as stunning mountain ranges, breathtaking waterfalls, even luxurious sandy beaches. There is also a diversity of climates, with warm Mediterranean winds wafting up toward towering Alps, and a depth and diversity of historical architecture, from Gothic churches to castles from all ages. Slovenia may be small but it has much to offer a visitor; LonleyPlanet.com’s Slovenia page calls the nation, “the mouse that roars.”Â
