In 2016, Slovenia became the very first Certified Green destination in the world and the same year its capital city Ljubljana was declared the European Green Capital. This lush paradise currently represents one of the top sustainable destinations in the world.

Slovenia is the only European country to combine the Alps, the Mediterranean, the Pannonian Plains and the Karst. Its landscape is always a surprise. The proximity of contrasts is one of the main landmarks of this beautiful green country. You will enjoy the view of the crystal clear sea from one side and see the high forested mountains on the other. You can walk through the forests and look at the green plains beneath. From the mountainous plateaus the view extends all the way to the river gorges.
