Things to Do in Slovenia in 3 Days

As Slovenia is a small country it is possible to see most of main cities and attractions in just three days. Just for comparison, Slovenia is 7 times smaller as compared to the State of New York. The largest distance between cities in Slovenia is just around 300 km.
But despite its size, it is very rich with all sorts of natural and other attractions. You will be amazed by the diversity of climate on such a small surface. Slovenia is so exceptional, as it’s offering the beauty of the Alpine world, as well as the Mediterranean and Continental climate.
In the north-western part of the country lies the Alpine world, which is offering the visit to the mountains, great ski resorts and alpine wellness centres. In seawards first the karst world reveals with the most magnificent underground caves in Europe, which are also on the UNESCO list of cultural and natural heritage. Then the magnificent Mediterranean world with the Adriatic Sea appears. The Slovenian coast is a very small but nonetheless very popular point of Slovenia, as the beaches are very beautiful and offering many different activities.
The continental climate is the centre of the urban world, culture and entertainment. An interesting fact is also that half of Slovenia’s surface is covered by forests. So in such small country, you have it all: the mountains, the city life and the sea.

Day 1

The first day starts in Kranjska Gora, the little alpine town which hosts the Alpine ski World cup every winter. Here treat yourself with a good home-made lunch and enjoy the view of the mighty peaks. Ski lovers will take some time for skiing on the white slopes.
While staying in Kranjska Gora, visiting Planica is a must.
