The best time to visit Slovenia is in spring, when temperatures are pleasant and the landscape is in bloom. On the other hand, the country is crowded in summer, you will therefore avoid this time if you are allergic to crowds, unless of course you want to lounge around on the Adriatic coast. Lastly, if you are going skiing go from December to March. Set off on a discovery of Slovenia's superb scenery, its famous thermal spas or yet again its ancient caves.

Do not miss Slovenia's many caves, the most famous of which are those of Postojna. Admire its crystalline formations from the tourist electric train. Young and old alike will appreciate the sight of the cave's stalagmites and stalactites. You can also choose the Skocjan caves. You can travel all year round to discover these caves: in any case, it will not be over 10 degrees! Also take along a raincoat as there is a very high humidity level.

You will also be able to encounter turtles here, and you will discover a unique animal in the famous Slovene caves: the proteus, an amphibian that lives nowhere else.

If there is one event not to miss in Slovenia, it is the international summer festival, where you will be able to enjoy a number of theatrical performances, as well as concerts and dance shows during the months or July and August. The cow ball, which celebrates the return of the cows to the valley and is held in September, constitutes one of the country's typical festivities. The ski competitions held in January and March are also worth the detour. In February, the arrival of spring is celebrated during the country's most important event. And why not attend the Christmas concert that takes place in Postojna's caves?
