Slovenia may be the best-kept secret in Europe. Just half the size of Switzerland, the country is often treated as fly-over—or drive-through—territory by travelers heading to better-known places in Croatia or Italy. That's good news for anyone choosing Slovenia as a destination, either in its own right or as a highlight during a visit to the region. It means fewer crowds—even in the peak summer touring months—fewer hassles, and in many ways a more relaxed travel experience with a chance to get to know the friendly and sophisticated Slovenian people.

While Slovenia's beautiful artistic monuments and charming towns may lack the grandeur and historical importance found in neighboring Italy or Austria, they still cast a captivating spell. And when it comes to natural beauty, Slovenia easily competes with other European countries. The Julian Alps northwest of the capital are every bit as spectacular as their sister Alpine ranges in Austria, Italy, and Switzerland, while the magnificent countryside and the quietly elegant charm of Ljubljana await those with the imagination to choose a destination that is off the beaten path.
