Travel Guide: A quick trip to Slovenia

by admin

Slovenia, located in central and southern Europe, touches the Alps and borders the Mediterranean Sea. It is rich in open spaces, authentic gastronomy, and has a lot of beautiful landscapes.

The European Commission awarded Ljubljana, its leafy capital, the Green Capital of Europe title in 2016. Cars are not allowed in the centre of the city. This leaves the river and the city for tourists and cyclists to explore on foot. It seems easy to make a weekend trip from London by flying two hours.
