Welcome to Slovenia!
Slovenia is a miniature, picturesque country in the heart of Europe. It is located between the Alps and the Adriatic sea, so close to Europe’s capitals and yet so far from the hectic pace of urban life.
With its ideal geographical position and natural wealth it makes for a perfect place to relax and recharge your senses. Indulge yourself in pure nature, typical local food, world-renowned wines and the stories of the thousand-year-old cities … and if you love SUP there is another magical side of Slovenia waiting for you to discover: Alpine and intermittent lakes, emerald-green rivers, Adriatic coast and urban paddling through the capital’s Old Town – an abundance of amazing SUP terrains as diverse as the country itself. You can read more in this in-depth Destination Guide to Standup Paddling Slovenia.
As native Slovenians, we believe it is impossible for us to give you an objective opinion on our own country. We believe that a bit more relevant way of presenting Slovenia to you is through the reviews of visitors who have seen, felt and discovered our country from their own perspectives. Here are some of their impressions.
