Welcome to Rediscover Slovenia
Beautiful lakes, mountains, mediaeval towns, waterfalls and the Adriatic.
Slovenia absorbs so much from its surroundings, culture, customs and hospitality. Primarily its historic influences have been Italy and Austro-Hungary but it has now been independent for 20 years and has become a full member of the EU. Further examples of the "bridge" culture Slovenia has developed between east and west is its multilingual population and a mix of both Catholic and Orthodox church-goers.
What does Rediscover Slovenia offer ?
Our holiday programme to Slovenia (which comes under the larger programme to Croatia) covers the whole country from the south around the coast, sandwiched between Italy and Istria, to the north in the mountains and around Lake Bled. Must see sights include the capital, Ljubljana, the Vintgar Gorge near Lake Bled, the Postojna Caves and the beautiful seaside town of Portoroz.
There are flights from London and UK regional airports into Ljubljana and nearby locations in Croatia and Italy such as Pula, Zagreb and Trieste. Why not consider one of our popular fly-drives which enables more sightseeing time.
Why Rediscover Slovenia ?
The directors of Rediscover the World have travelled extensively in Slovenia over many years from the mid 1980s. This experience, together with the knowledge gained from frequent visits to new hotels and locations, enables us to provide you with the most up-to-date and fullest possible assistance in planning your ideal holiday - we can put together any tailor made itinerary for you to suit your budget. We are fully bonded and provide full financial security and assistance should any part of your holiday not happen entirely to plan. If you were to assemble your holiday yourself you may not have this sort of protection.
Ljubljana is a small town measured by world standards - it is one of the smallest capital cities in one of the smallest countries. Ljubljana is situated on the crossroad between Central Europe, the Mediterranean, the Pannonian Plain and Balkans. Because of the mixture of different cultures in the past, Ljubljana and Slovenia are very diverse in their people, architecture and cuisine.
In our opinion it is a delightful place to include in any fly-drive holiday in the region or even as a short break destination. It has a wonderful Castle and the city's cathedral and other impressive buildings are in the heart of the historic old town.

At the edge of the Triglav National Park lies the emerald-green, pristine Lake Bled. On a small island in the middle is a 9th Century church, overlooking the lake is a majestic mediaeval castle, the whole scene is set against the incredible backdrop of the Julian Alps. Bled also offers a proud tradition of thermal springs and a curative climate which have long made it one of Europe's finest mountain resorts.
Whilst in the area do not miss out on a visit to the nearby Lake Bohinj, another glacial lake which is less developed than Bled. It is a long, slender lake which is enveloped by towering mountain peaks and wooded alpine pastures.
We are offering two hotels at Lake Bled, click on the link above to view more details...
Slovenia's magical scenery and legendary hospitality are unquestionably real, as you'll confirm when you have explored the country, still waiting to be rediscovered.
