Flights to Slovenia
Landlocked by neighbouring countries Austria to the north, Italy to the west, Hungary to the northeast, and Croatia to the southeast, and sided by the Alps mountain range at the northern end of the Adriatic Sea, charming rural country Slovenia is attuned to enjoying the simple and finer things in life. Right in the heart of Europe, four major European geographic regions meet in Slovenia: the Alps, the Dinaric area, the Pannonian plain, and the Mediterranean. Rich and blessed not only in natural beauty but also in economic gains, Slovenia is notable for its main industries that include car parts, chemicals, electronics, electrical appliances, metal goods, textiles, and furniture.
What to see & do
The capital city Ljubljana, despite its small stature, is a charming city brimming with museums, galleries, and other old-world wonders. Great news is you can reach most attractions by foot. Begin your journey in the old town, sandwiched between the castle hill and the Ljubljanica River. Well preserved buildings became present-day local designer shops, cafes, and restaurants. The charming Robba fountain in the city square seemingly brings and transports you back to Slovenia’s yesteryears. Another tourist attraction to visit is the Ljubljana Castle, which is accessible either by a tourist train, steep walk to the hill, or the Funicular Railway. The Castle offers you magnificent views of the city. You can also opt to watch a 3D movie to know more of Ljubljana’s pre-historic settlement up until its present time.
Next to Ljubljana, Maribor’s equally significant tourist attraction offerings are hard not to miss. Accessible via its international airport Maribor Edvard Rusjan Airport, or simply by taking a bus from Ljubljana over a 123-kilometre stretch, Maribor welcome its visitors with the sweet smell of wine, coupled with cultural destinations and recreational activities in the city. Visit the Old Vine, a Guinness certified oldest vine in the world, aged 450 years. Catch a glimpse of the traditional Old Vine Festival in September, and see how the grapes are harvested and cultivated to become Slovenia’s best tasting wine rich in flavour and grandeur. Complement your visit to the Old Vine by visiting The Old Vine House, a temple of wine tradition and culture, as well as the Vinag Wine Cellar, which features approximately 5.5 million litres of wine over its two-kilometre stretch.
