The magical Ljubljana.

Ljubljana is the perfect destination for a relaxing city break with an abundance of culture and interesting sights. It is classified as a mid-sized European city, but it has preserved its small-town friendliness and relaxed atmosphere. Also well placed for fine dining and has many superb restaurants at affordable prices compared to France or Italy.

Alpine resort of Kranjska Gora.

Kranjska Gora is a small but lively Alpine town in northwestern Slovenia close to the Austrian and Italian borders. This mountain village has all of the amenities that you would need in a modern ski resort. There are supermarkets, bank, post office, well-equipped medical center, a tourist information office, and several sports shops. There are numerous bars and restaurants. Although there are several large hotels, the village center retains its own identity. The main hotels allow non-residents to use their pools, gyms, and sauna for a small fee. The area is full of nice neighboring villages worth visiting. For example, a world-famous ski jumps at Planica should definitely be on your list. You could also drive to Mojstrana and take a look at its spectacular waterfall.
