Slovenia’s ski resorts

Slovenia is a country that lies between Italy, Croatia, and Hungary. The Venetian Gulf of the Adriatic Sea washes a small part of its territory. The capital of the state is Ljubljana.

There are a lot of trees and greenery in Slovenia, so the air is incredibly clean. The area of the whole country is equal to the area of the Moscow region, but it has always combined harmoniously the traditions and features of the Alpine, Central European and Mediterranean regions.

Slovenia in winter: The fabulous Lake Bled

European tourists often come here for winter holidays. For the majority of Russian experts of skiing extreme, Slovenia is absolutely unexplored testing ground. But it can safely be called a quiet paradise for lovers of skiing from high slopes.

Slovenia’s ski resorts are not as large-scale as Austrian, Swiss and French, but they are better organized in many ways. There are very rarely long queues on the slopes. Everything is organized so that nothing distracts the guest from the most important thing – skiing, picturesque peaks and scenery.

Every year the season is open from December to March. There are ski schools, kindergartens for little travelers, and numerous ski elevators and rentals. In some places a passion for winter sports can be pleasantly combined with spa treatments. It is also worthwhile visiting places of interest during your vacation or sampling some Slovenian specialties and local wine in a restaurant.
