A Gap Year in Slovenia

Why go backpacking in Slovenia?

Slovenia is a small but varied country in Central Europe which features a diverse landscape rich in rolling hills, ragged snow-capped mountains and impressive beaches.

Whilst a little pricier than some of Eastern Europe; backpackers, travellers and gap year InterRailers – particularly those coming inbound from the UK, US, Canada or Australia – will find loads to do on a modest budget. Slovenia has more palaces, castles and magnificent Gothic churches than a history buff could find time to cram in, and photographers will be in their element here too.

Slovenian locals are some of the friendliest and most open-minded in the region; most speak many languages, and simple English is widely understood. This makes Slovenia a perfect destination for a trip of any length.
