Save Place
Inventive and traditional gastronomy merge—truffles, to be sure, but also bear cheek—at Pri Lojzetu, arguably the birthplace of Slovenian slow food. 386/(0) 5368-7007.
Save Place
4265 Ribčev Laz, Slovenia
Largest national park in Slovenia
Save Place
4264 Brod, Slovenia
Shot this on a train outside -- where was it at this point, Bohinj? Slovenia's not a huge country but somehow we'd been riding forever. And between the woman across from me and the man looking at the camera, the faces showed it.
Save Place
Gorenja vas pri Šmarjeti 86, 8220 Šmarješke Toplice, Slovenia
We booked a self guided walk from farm to farm in Slovenia in September where we experienced wonderful hosts, fabulous fresh foods and wine with the lovely countryside to enjoy during the walks. (7 days, 5 different farms and one castle town...
Save Place
6210 Lipica, Slovenia
I insisted on visiting Lipica to see the grounds and the horses since I ride English Hunt Seat. We walked from our farm stay in Tomaj to Lipica just to discover where the World Championship Carriage Competitions were being held that day! What a...
Save Place
4275 Begunje na Gorenjskem, Slovenia
While driving around the country it's impossible to miss the lovely hay drying racks peppering the landscape. This is near Begunje, my grandfather's birthplace.
Save Place
4220 Škofja Loka, Slovenia
Skofja Loka is home to the oldest preserved bridge in Slovenia, 12,000 people and a wonderful medieval center. Mostly, though, it's got a name you'll turn over and over in your head. SHKOfia LOka. Tempted to re-name my daughter, but that's...
Save Place
Straža 8, 5282 Cerkno, Slovenia
This was our second farm stay and our least favorite due to close proximity to the autobahn = noisy! Rick Steves mentions this in his travel books and videos, so it was full of Steves cult followers. Rooms and food were terrific but we would not...
Save Place
5222 Kobarid, Slovenia
Slovenia's Soca Valley is one of the world's great adventure hubs – the steep terrain of the Julian Alps is carved with narrow gorges for hiking and canyoning, while the ice-blue Soca River has class I-V rapids for rafting, kayaking and canoeing....
Save Place
San Mauro 157, 52462, Momjan, Croatia
The Istrian interior is agrarian and food-focused – the kind of place where the roads are marked "Oil Route" and "Wine Route." So, what better place to stay than at a farm hotel? The Agroturizam San Mauro is run by the Sinkovic family, who have...

Worth the walk

Ljubljana, Slovenia
Dusk in Slovenia
Save Place
Kot 1, 5230 Bovec, Slovenia
Do no miss out on the pristine mountain town of Bovec if you're in Slovenia, Austria or Northern Italy (it's very accessible from all 3). Situated between several rivers and valleys, Bovec perfectly combines serenity and adventure. I highly...
Save Place
5271 Slap, Slovenia
Upon arriving at our third farm stay we were greeted by the grandmother who brought us a tree of prust, cheese and pickles along with the best mint juice we've ever had to quench our thirst for this long trek.
Save Place
5220 Tolmin, Slovenia
The Soča River runs along Western Slovenia and following its path made for a beautiful road trip. The river has a deep emerald hue that looks photoshopped in pictures, but is 100% real. Coming from Ljubljana with the goal of arriving in Bled, we...
Save Place
6230 Predjama, Slovenia
A must see castle
Save Place
4264 Bohinjska Bistrica, Slovenia
This was a MUST do for me during out trip. To visit the annual Kow's Ball festival where the cows come down front the mountain meadows to lower pastures. This is a reason to celebrate with Pust, Prust and Pivo! Also lots of dancing.
Save Place
5222 Kobarid, Slovenia
Kobarid is also known as Caporetto, because the town—on the border with Italy—was annexed by the Italians for part of World War I. The brutality of that war has been erased—and scenery like this has survived (you can revisit the war at the museum...
Save Place
Lake Bled, 4260 Bled, Slovenia
We arrived on a day with a dusting of snow but the ferry man was still willing to row us over to the island in the middle of Lake Bled. Happy to have the fare, he broke a sweat as we huddled together for warmth. Slovenia is an undiscovered gem-...
Save Place
Adamič-Lundrovo nabrežje 6, 1000 Ljubljana, Slovenia
Stall after stall of kitschy folk art? Sure. But December’s monthlong Festive Fair also has homemade pear brandy, piles of fresh sauerkraut, and hours of great stories about the days of socialism. Lights on the Triple Bridge add a warm glow. This...
Save Place
5232 Soča, Slovenia
Ernest Hemingway memorialized the Soca Valley, home to one of the bloodiest fronts of World War I, in A Farewell to Arms. Today you can toboggan down the slopes. 386/(0) 5-389-6200. This appeared in the November/December 2012 issue.
Save Place
Stahovica, 1242 Stahovica, Slovenia
Ride the cable car at Velika Planina ski resort to the Zeleni Rob mountain hut, where you can savor a bowl of jota (bean and pickled turnip stew) with a glass of Lasko beer. 386/(0) 5-134-1406. This appeared in the November/December 2012 issue.
Save Place
Matavun 12, 6215 Divača, Slovenia
A tour of the massive World Heritage site Skocjan Caves affords the singular experience of peering into a glowing subterranean river that flows beneath a blanket of snow. 386/(0) 5-708-2100. This appeared in the November/December 2012 issue.
