Slovenia can be divided into three regions looking at its tourism: Prekmurje, Drava Region and Slovene Krajina.
The capital, Ljubljana, can be found in the latter one. The seashore makes up a separate area. Let’s start with this one!
The seashore in Slovenia can give much more than the obvious opportunities. The cities of Koper, Piran, Izola and Portorož have outstanding sights. Koper will amaze you with its medieval town centre, while Piran will do the same with the gothic houses and the medieval town walls. The very famous Maritime Museum can also be found here.
Prekmurje is the richest in specific Slovenian sights. It has lots of historical memories with Hungarian regards.
Many castles, as the Lendava Castle, the castle in Murska Sobota, the Grad Castle, the Rakičan Castle all share the Hungarian-Slovenian common past.
The Rakičan Castle’s very unique sight is the riding school, but the castle park is popular, as well. Many ancient temples can be found in this region. They all offer different kind of features, it’s definitely worth paying a visit.
The rotunda of St. Nicholas and the Virgin Mary, which can be found in Selo, is an ancient church built in the 13th century. Part of it refers to the Romanesque style, but the late Gothic pictures help us imagine what life could have been like at that time.
The temples of Martjanci and Turnišče have remained from the 14th century, very specific historical memories. We can have a look at the frescos of John Aquila here.
If you like nature you would want to pay a visit to the Goričko Nature Park or the area of Dobrovnik-Strehovci with the Lake Bukovnica.
The most famous places of the Drava Region are: Maribor, Ptuj, Ormož and the lowland of Dravinja.
In the Slovene Krajina region the sights of the capital, Ljubjana, are the most popular. Not to mention the town of Bled with the beautiful lake and the surrounding area, and the Bled Castle, which was the residence of the royal family for a very long time.
