Welcome to Slovenia! Slovenia is THE greenest country in the world and one of the safest. If you look at Slovenia on a map, you’ll find it shares its borders with Italy, Hungary, Croatia and Austria. It’s perfect for solo female travellers and has plenty of activities to keep you busy (as well as the most beautiful capital in Europe in my opinion!).
Most people visit the capital of Slovenia, Ljubljana, and also the famous Lake Bled in Slovenia. There is so much more to see than this though! I have spent my time in the deep south along the River Kolpa, in Bela Krajina and found this off-the-beaten-path part of Slovenia to be the most rewarding. It’s the least developed and most rural part – but the nature, culture and locals here are mindblowing. Check out my Slovenian blog posts below for more information!
When you plan your trip in Europe, make time in Slovenia. You won’t regret it!
What’s your favourite capital city in Europe? For me it has to be Ljubljana! The Slovenia capital (sometimes mistakenly written as Lubiana) is cute, compact, covered in adorable pastels, has its own castle, safe cycle lanes, dramatic dragon statues atop whimsical bridges, cutting edge modern art galleries…and this hidden alternative hippy area where the inner rebel in you will be as happy as I am in the picture below!
Nestled between Austria, Croatia, Hungary and Italy, Slovenia is Europe’s greenest and most peaceful secret, starting to slowly emerge from its forests and lush fields. Word of its beauty is quickly starting to spread: I’m not surprised. Slovenia is an adventurer’s playground and for those seeker peaceful, reflective moments – an absolute dream.
Sometimes an adventurous solo female traveller just needs a full-on nature getaway in the middle of paradise and tranquillity, with lashings of luxury spread all over it…and let’s face it, a glass of wine on top. No matter how much I rough it up mountains or whizz through dirt on my bike, I’m realising that this girl has a limit – and is crying out for some serious TLC.
