Slovenia is one of the most underrated countries in Europe. Located between the Balkans and Central Europe, it is often overlooked by travellers because of its more famous neighbours. Bordered by Austria to the North, Croatia to the South East, Hungary to North East and Italy to the West, it controls the major transit routes in Europe. However, this is not enough to draw more tourists. So here are 14 reasons why Slovenia should be your next destination.

  1. Lake Bled from a vantage point. A scenic lake in Upper Carniolan region.
