Did you know that Slovenia is one of the most biodiverse countries on the planet? Yes! Yes! As you are reading it! And that it is one of the smallest states of the old continent. Thus, here it is possible to find rivers, lakes, plains, the wonderful Alps, the Adriatic Sea… The best of all is that in all these places it is possible to find tremendously beautiful villages.
What we are going to do today at Vuela Viajes is tell you about the most beautiful towns in Slovenia, although we have had no choice but to leave some places in the pipeline. Would you like to join us? We assure you that you will not regret it!
First of all, we want to talk about Piran, a beautiful coastal town located on the shores of the Adriatic Sea. If something stands out about this place, it is its architecture, tremendously influenced by the Venetian style. Of all its buildings, the one that stands out the most is the Church of San Jorge, located on a hill from which you can get fantastic views.
The next town we want to talk about is Ptjuj, a town located in the Lower Styria region. Standing since the Stone Age, this place stands out for its enormous historical wealth . Among the buildings that are worth visiting are the Town Hall, the tower, the huge church of San Jorge and the gentrified castle.
We also want to tell you about Krankj. And it is that although it is a city with many inhabitants, it still retains that medieval air that makes it so attractive. It is located in the Gorenjska Region, in a very strategic location . You will love its historic center, where you will discover vestiges of its history. In addition, its palaces, churches, houses of the high aristocracy, the patios of the houses with more tradition …
We continue our tour of the most beautiful villages in Slovenia in Bled, a small super tourist town that grows on the shores of the lake of the same name. Located in the Alps , it offers the traveler many attractions beyond its lake, such as the one known as the "Island of Lovers" or the Gothic castle located on the edge of a cliff.
Nor could Skofja Loka be missing from this list, a quite picturesque medieval town where you can find beautiful streets and squares. It stands out, how could it be otherwise, its castle, although there are other corners of the municipality that are worth visiting, such as its bright churches, the medieval bridge or the old town hall.
We also want to tell you about Izola, a town located in southern Slovenia that also lets us see the most medieval part of the country. Of course, in this case it is a very charming coastal town. In this corner we also find some samples of Venetian architecture, although what we like the most is its port, surrounded by colorful fishermen’s houses.
Another town we want to show you is Kamnik, which is located south of the Alps. It is one of the oldest municipalities in Slovenia and attracts tourists for its set of restored historical buildings and its beautiful old town. The Small Castle and the Old Castle stand out, among other points of interest.
Finally, we want to talk about Postojna, a municipality in southwestern Slovenia that draws attention to what is known as Postina Cave, a set of tunnels and galleries that reaches 20 kilometers. It is one of the most visited caves in all of Europe. Of course, we cannot forget about the wonderful Predjama Castle, which was built at the entrance of a cave.
