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
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
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
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

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.
