Ljubljana

Sitting astride the Ljubljanica River, Ljubljana is marked with picturesque bridges and a marketplace, designed by the famous architect Jože Plečnik.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Mala Osojnica and Planica Nordic Centre & Zipline. Take a break from the city and head to Zelenci Nature Reserve and Lake Jasna. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Ljubljana: Kranjska Gora (Intersport Bernik, Vršič Pass, &more), Maribor (Escape Room Enigmarium Maribor & Mariborsko Pohorje Ski Resort) and Spas (in Podčetrtek). There's still lots to do: admire the local landmark of Plečnik's Arcade & Fountain and indulge your thirst for a good beer at Union Experience.

Piran

Considered one of the prettiest cities on the country's coast, Piran owes much of its development to salt.
Start off your visit on the 15th (Wed): enjoy the sand and surf at Strunjan Nature Reserve, then enjoy the sand and surf at Portorož Beach, then see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, and finally make a trip to Walls of Piran. Here are some ideas for day two: ponder the design of Da Ponte Fountain, admire the striking features of Praetorian Palace, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Koper Cathedral and Bell Tower, make a trip to Piazza Tito, then make a trip to Port Piran, and finally get curious at Magical World of Shells Museum.

To find photos and tourist information, go to the Piran trip planner.

Expect somewhat warmer temperatures when traveling from Ljubljana in January; daily highs in Piran reach 11°C and lows reach 1°C.

Sunny Side of the Alps
From snowcapped Alpine peaks to sandy Adriatic beaches, a trip to Slovenia is like taking several vacations at once. Whatever the season, the country offers enticing natural attractions, all close at hand, including thick forests, scenic valleys, cave systems, waterfalls, lakes, and the Adriatic coast. For those seeking an active holiday, you'll fine an abundance of ski slopes, trails to hike, roads to bike, and rocks to climb. Pay a visit to some of Slovenia's spa resorts and take advantage of the fresh mountain air and thermal waters. Various castles, churches, and historical towns--many of which are fully preserved--tell stories of the country's past. In Slovenia's major cities, admire the architecture, explore the local arts, visit museums, and chat with the locals over a cup of coffee. Slovenian cuisine offers a blend of Alpine and Mediterranean tastes and is definitely worth trying, along with the country's wines.
