    Resting between the Alps and the Adriatic Sea, Slovenia offers a wide choice of attractions ranging from lakes and mountains to small fishing villages clinging to the coastline. Here karstic lakes and the Postojna Caves provide a glimpse of what you will see. Being a relatively small country everything is at hand. Ljubljana, the capital city is delightful to explore. Its narrow cobbled streets and Baroque architecture are reminiscent of days gone by.
