The underrated central European country of Slovenia is filled with gorgeous lakes, majestic mountains and lush forests. Sandwiched between Croatia to the south and Austria to the north, Slovenia has a unique identity all its own, with so much nature and open space in the capital Ljubljana that it was awarded the European Green Capital 2016. Whether you’re riding the underground railway in the ancient Postojna Cave or bathing in the hot mineral waters of one of Slovenia’s many thermal spas, you're bound to have a fantastic time in Slovenia.
