COASTAL CITIES

A few of the most wonderful Slovenia’s cities are most definitely the seaside towns that are known for their beautiful beaches and rich histories. One town especially stands out—Piran. Not only does it offer organised boat rides to tourists (although the other towns do that, too) but it also has an aquarium that has been there for over 50 years.

LJUBLJANA

Derived from the Slovenian word “ljubljena” meaning “loved” the capital city of Slovenia is definitely one of the must-sees of our country. Its main appeal is undoubtedly the old city centre, which offers a number of activities—from the tour of the Ljubljana castle to eating or having a drink in one of the restaurants or bars next to the Ljubljanica river.

Several other points of interest can be found in our vicinity, such as the Predjama Castle a, the Snežnik Castle, the Prem castle and of course the famous Park of Military History, well known for its collection of military weapons and tanks, as well as a submarine.

NATURAL LANDMARKS

Just a short drive away from our camp you can find The Seasonal Lakes of Pivka, where you can take a walk or visit the Ecomuseum of the Seasonal Lakes of Pivka, where you can learn more about the lakes. Also a seasonal lake, but a bit farther away, is Lake Cerknica, the biggest intermittent lake in all of Europe. While there, you can take a look at the Museum of Lake Cerknica. On your way back you can also visit Rakov Škocjan, a valley and a landscape park. Other natural landmarks include Škocjan caves, the most beautiful caves of Slovenia, the Postojna cave and the Križna cave.
