Lonely Planet included Slovenia on its top ten lists of the best value destinations – places that give travellers the most bang for their buck. Specifically, the guidebook publisher recommends exploring the Slovenian Alps, Ljubljana, as well as Lakes Bled and Bohinj.
“Getting around is easy and cheap. In a single day you can tour a Venetian-tinged seaside town, cross Alpine passes and dine by the river in the heart of Ljubljana,” mentioned Lonely Planet on its website, which also highlights nature activities, which are more affordable in Slovenia than in other Alpine countries. “This pocket of Europe in miniature is a great value bet for anyone who’s after the continent’s highlights but is short on time or funds,” adds Lonely Planet. As stated by the website, Slovenia is “a place of world-class restaurants and wineries, and undiscovered small towns.” Lonely Planet writes that travel within Slovenia is easy and cheap, while numerous road and rail journeys provide special experiences.
