Slovenia was always the most stable and prosperous of the former Yugoslav Republics. Since its independence it has turned to the west and has become one of the more economically healthy countries of Eastern Europe. The capital Ljublijana is a beautiful city that has been influenced by both Austria and Italy. Its Baroque old town is one of the most beautiful in all of Europe. Galleries, cafes and small boutiques have opened up all over the city and its museums contain both renowned works of art and historical exhibits. Outside Ljublijana visit the resort town of Bled famous for its alpine hills and medieval castle. Continental Journeys offers both escorted and independent tours to Slovenia. You can customize any independent tour or have us create a tour that best fits your wishes.
