Slovenia: Europe’s Undiscovered Gem

Want picture-perfect Europe, continental wines and affordable skiing away from the tourist hoards? Then travel to Slovenia—Europe’s undiscovered gem. Visit the Triglav National Park—the national park lies in Slovenia’s far western corner, a few miles south of Austria and east of Italy. Triglav offers 25 miles of sparsely populated cross-country ski trails, and is one of Europe’s hottest cross-country ski venues. The development in the country’s only national park is strictly regulated, and while there are hotels in larger Kranjska Gora, accommodation is often provided in the tiny villages and farms dotted throughout.
