Slovenia Holidays 2021
Located in the heart of Europe in the Eastern Alps, at the north eastern end of the Adriatic Sea, Slovenia is a small country famed for its picturesque lakes and mountains. With Italy and Croatia as its neighbours, and with a true Mediterranean influence, Slovenia boasts a fascinating blend of cultures.
Slovenia holidays offer a thrilling range of experiences, all the way from relaxing days at the beach to challenging hikes through the mountains. The capital, Ljubljana, is a popular destination for visitors; a pocket-sized city with a rich medieval heritage and easy access to the lovely beauty spot of Lake Bled.
While Slovenia is a truly exciting destination, you don’t need to spend much to experience the beauty of this amazing country. Even a cheap holiday to Slovenia is enough to place you right at the heart of all the action, close to the seaside town of Piran, the peaks of Vogel, or even the mysterious caves of Postojna.

Your guide to Slovenia holidays
Eat your way around Slovenia by sampling the many different regional cuisines, from hearty stews and soups to vibrant local wines. For anyone who loves trying new things, Slovenia won’t disappoint.
- Food in Slovenia shows off the Italian, German, Croatian, and Slavic influences found within this part of the world. And if you’re a wine drinker, you’ll find a whole host of wonderful wines produced in the local area which often aren’t on the market in the UK, so make sure to pick up a bottle as a souvenir or gift.
- For a special occasion (or even just for a great night out), book a table at Špajza in Ljubljana’s old town. The homely decor is complemented by a pretty garden with rustic furniture, and the food is incredible. Expect traditional Slovenian food to dominate the menu, with meat options such as horse and goat.
- Some of the most interesting foods to try in Slovenia can be found at Hiša Franko in Kobarid; a beautiful old country house that’s surrounded by orchards, vegetable gardens, and the mountains. This family-run restaurant serves up a wide range of food, including nettle risotto and caramelised mackerel.
- Slovenians love their food and drink so much that they actually host several festivals throughout the year to celebrate it! Great festivals to keep an eye out for during your trip include the Sevnica Salami Festival, the Pumpkin Festival, the Fisherman’s Festival, and the Chocolate Festival (popular with kids!).
When the sun sets, Slovenia really comes to life. Slovenia nightlife is made up of an exciting blend of buzzing bars, vibrant nightclubs, chic casinos, and lively festivals, and there’s always something going on.
- In Ljubljana, you’ll find jazz bars and quirky cocktail bars lining the river, such as Centralna Postaja (Central Station). With street art tags on the walls and dazzling neon signs, this unusual bar transforms into a club at the weekends, with visiting DJs making this one of the hottest nightlife spots in the city.
- If you fancy a bit of live music, Klub Daktari offers music sets, jam sessions, theatre, cabaret, and all sorts of other cultural events. And even if you’re not looking for live entertainment, this is still worth checking out for its unusual living room-type set up, complete with its very own on-site library!
- On the coast of Portorož you'll find Kavarna Cacao, a stylish cafe-bar. This is a brilliant place to chill out, catching the sunset from the wonderful waterfront terrace. With refreshing cocktails and a dancefloor that’s always busy, this is a great place to unwind, and there are regular events held here too.
- For modern music and a beautiful sea view, Klub Paprika is well worth visiting for an after dinner treat. Known for its massive cocktail menu and delicious bar snacks, the terrace has also earned itself a reputation for being one of the best places on the Slovenian coast to sunbathe with a drink in hand.
Lake Bled Nightlife
- For some late night partying, head to Stop Club in Bled and join 300+ other partygoers to enjoy a concert or live DJ performance. With an amazing view of the lake and castle, this is the only nightclub in Bled, which makes it hugely popular, especially at weekends when the locals flock for dancing and drinks.
- Another great Bled hotspot is Rock Bar Bled, which boasts a lovely outdoor seating area where you can take advantage of the warm Slovenian summer evenings. The bar is open until the early hours and is known for a massive selection of beers. There are also great paninis here to satisfy hungry tummies.

Your Slovenia questions answered
While Bled does have its own airport, it's only used for recreational flying. Instead, visitors to Lake Bled will fly into Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport, which is around 24 miles from the lake itself.
