Slovenia is a country that continuously exceeds travellers’ expectations. From Medieval Skofja Loka to Lake Bled to beautiful Triglav National Park. Take a scenic train ride to Nova Gorica and visit Skocjan Caves, some of the most wondrous caves found on earth.
Slovenia’s climate follows three distinctive patterns: in the northwest, an alpine climate predominates, characterized by very cold winters, often with heavy rainfall and snow, and moderately warm summers, occasionally interspersed with short, violent storms. However, with the wide range of pursuits on offer here – skiing between December and March, and climbing, hiking and adventure sports between April and September – a visit to the mountain regions can be enjoyed at pretty much any time of the year.
The Primorska region (from the Soia Valley down to the coast) has a typically Mediterranean climate – very warm summers with consistent sunshine, and pleasantly cool winters.
The remainder of the country subscribes to a continental climate of hot, dry summers – particularly in the south and east of the country – and bitterly cold winters.
