Slovenia – the green heart of Europe ?

The land of green and safe oasis is a home of a country that proudly holds the world ‘love’ in its
name. Slovenia is located in the green heart of Europe, where the Alps meet the Mediterranean, and
the Pannonian meets the Karst. A small green country with a population of just over 2 million
extends in 20,273 km2. 
 
The capital city Ljubljana with its surroundings of Central Slovenia is an excellent starting point to fall
in love with Slovenia’s unique features. Alpine Slovenia amazes with experiences among the highest
mountains and the wildest waters, and it’s where the most popular Lake Bled can be found. The
Mediterranean and Karst Slovenia
 invite you to visit world-famous karst caves, Postojna caves, and
traditional salt pans, Strunjan, on the Adriatic coast. Thermal Pannonian Slovenia boasts 13 natural
health resorts near thermal springs amid the wine-growing hills. 
The capital city of Ljubljana, whose name sounds beloved in Slovenian (Ljubljana–ljubljena), lives
with a thousand faces of urban culture and art, festivals, and events. With over 542 m² of public
green areas per capita, Ljubljana is one of the greenest cities in Europe. We welcome you to our
spacious and greenish living room in the city of Ljubljana – enjoy!

Ljubljana – the capital city ❤️

The image of the town by a river with picturesque bridges and a marketplace was strongly influenced
and designed by the renowned Slovenian architect Jože Plečnik, a pioneer of 20th-century modern
architecture. The idea of sustainability has been already inherent in many of Plečnik’s works. It is
reflected in the nowadays city image, focusing on harmony with the natural environment and
sustainable mobility. 
Ljubljana is one of the greenest capital cities in Europe, welcoming pedestrians and cyclists into the
heart of the Old Town, which is restricted to car traffic. This way, one can stroll along the emerald-
green Ljubljanica River, which flows through the city’s heart or enjoy sunny and warm days in one of
the various cafes located along the river.   
 
The town of a thousand events is surrounded by parks and natural protected areas, and with its
relaxed vibe, a city is a pleasant place for residents and visitors alike.

P.S.: No need to break your tongue trying to pronounce the name of Ljubljana. It is not difficult when
you find out that “J” s in Slovenian are pronounced as “Y” s in English. More manageable, right, lyoo-
BLYAH-nah!

Bled is an image of paradise. This tourist gem of global dimensions on the edge of the Triglav
National Park was nominated as one of the world’s seven new wonders. It is distinguished by a mild,
healing climate and thermal springs of lake water.
The most recognizable symbol of Bled is the island with the Church of the Mother of God with the
wishing bell, which is popular among many visitors who come to the island. You can ride on the lake
and the island in various ways or on a traditional boat called pletna. You should be able to recognize
it from afar as it is equipped with a colorful awning that protects passengers from the sun and other
weather conditions. 
 
While visiting Bled, you should not miss visiting the Bled Castle, the oldest castle in Slovenia, to enjoy
the featured historical artifacts. Last but the least – when enjoying Bled, one should try the
mouthwatering Bled cream cake, called ‘Kremšnita’, the dish awarded the certificate of national
origin.
