Planina Jezero
In the heart of Triglav National Park, which the American Huffington Post website listed among Europe’s ten most spectacular national parks, lie the mountains known as Fužinske planine. This wonderful piece of alpine world on a plateau above Lake Bohinj is where Bohinj dairy farming originates from. One of the alpine meadows is Planina pri Jezeru, featuring a small lake with a mountain hut next to it.
The Olimje Monastery
In the east of the country, close to the border with Croatia, lies the village of Olimje. Situated at the foot of the hills of Kozjansko, the settlement is known for its picturesque monastery that houses the third oldest pharmacy in Europe. Today, the monastery is inhabited by the Brothers Minor, who keep the famous herbal tradition of the Olimje Monastery alive.
Sculptor Milena Braniselj 
Milena Braniselj is a sculptor whose consistency in working with kinetic or mobile sculptures is unmatched in Slovenia. The co-existence of science and art has given birth to more than forty public sculptures, the ideas for which most often come from the artist’s home region of Notranjska and the famous intermittent Cerknica Lake.
The Lepa Vida Spa
Sea salt has been produced in the Sečovlje saltpans for over seven hundred years. The spin-off from this process is the black salt-pan mud and the brine, both of which have healing, relaxing and beautifying effects. This has prompted the saltpans management to offer visitors a thalasso spa right amidst the saltpans. Although the spa is part of the protected natural park, the new activities present no threat to the park’s natural balance.
Ljubljana’s  summer nights
In the first half of the year, the number of visitors to Slovenia’s capital rose by 7 percent and, they say the city has never been livelier. This atmosphere can best be felt in the evening when the charm of the street nightlife permeates every pore of the old city centre.
