Specifically, the guidebook publisher recommends exploring the Slovenian Alps, Ljubljana, as well as Lakes Bled and Bohinj, reports the Slovenian Tourist Board (STO).
“Its inclusion on the list of the top ten value destinations for 2019 is a huge honor for Slovenia. Lonely Planet is one of the most prestigious media companies in the field of travel; it highlights the most exciting and extraordinary tourist destinations around the world. The inclusion of Slovenia on the list of best value destination proves that the country is an unforgettable destination that stays with travelers for a long time,” says Maja Pak of the Slovenian Tourist Board.
“Travel here is easy and cheap.”
“In a single day you can tour a Venetian-tinged seaside town, cross Alpine passes and dine by the river in the heart of Ljubljana,” writes Lonely Planet on its website, which also highlights nature activities, which are more affordable in Slovenia than in other Alpine countries. “This pocket of Europe in miniature is a great value bet for anyone who’s after the continent’s highlights but is short on time or funds,” adds Lonely Planet.

The travel publisher also mentions Lakes Bled and Bohinj, which do get crowded in the summer, but it’s easy to find a quiet corner.
