Slovenia – a must destination to visit once travel resumes


Go World – Travel Magazine published a list of five countries to visit when travel resumes. Among the five countries, Go World – Travel Magazine’s writer Micheal Patrick Shiels mentioned our beautiful country on the sunny side of the Alps.

We haven’t traveled for a minute, or better said for a few months now due to travel restrictions. We can hardly wait to once again book a plane ticket, pack our bags and go exploring new places once travel resumes.

Go World is a travel magazine, which posted an article on which are the five countries you must visit once travel resumes. Among Italy, Spain, Turkey and Portugal, they have mentioned Slovenia.

Slovenia as a traveler’s must-see destination post- COVID travel

Slovenia being overlooked in the past can be an advantage to travelers in the post-pandemic era according to Matej Knific, co-founder of Luxury Slovenia, the country’s top luxury travel planner. Knific and his partner Mattej Valencic suggest that visiting Slovenia is like experiencing five European countries at one time combining hints of the Alps, Mediterranean, Pannonian Basin, and rocky Karst for a great value right next to Venice. 

“Slovenia is a small country in the heart of Europe with a lot of wide-open spaces and no crowds,” Knific explained. Think you’ve already seen it all in Europe? “Slovenia is the perfect spot for well-traveled guests who are looking for something new.”

A new focus on tourism has made Slovenia a sustainable and growing gastronomic region with storybook scenery for selfies such as Lake Bled.

Two million people live in a country more than 60-percent covered by woods and they build up an appetite to participate in land-based outdoor activities such as hiking in virgin forests and cycling in White Carniola by the Kolpa River plus utilizing the lakes and rivers recreationally. 

“Chef Janez Bratovz leads food tours beginning with a tasting at Ljubljana food market and a cooking class at JB Restaurant where you’ll prepare your lunch with him,” Knific explained. Truffles, homemade ravioli filled with cottage cheese, pistachio, meat and cream sauce, licorice, and foie gras may get you started, for instance.

Knific’s Luxury Slovenia can arrange a picnic lunch during a private tour of the Lipica Stud Farm where the white stallions and picturesque pastures are jaw-dropping in their majesty.
