Placed strategically between the Alps and the Adriatic Sea, Slovenia has been named by some as “The Green Piece of Europe” and rightfully so. In any case, Slovenia boasts of incredible natural curiosities, such as numerous karst caves, serene lakes and impressive mountains. There are many things you can do with your family in Slovenia, as well, so if you love nature or just want to enjoy the open air, it’s a great idea to plan your family holidays in Slovenia.
Spelunking – There are more than a thousand limestone caves in Slovenia, and although not all of them are open to the public, some of the best ones are, like the Skocjan Cave, Snezna Jama Cave and the Postojna Cave, which is the most visited cave in all of Europe.
