Great Surprises in Undiscovered Slovenia -- Perfect for a Campervan Rental Vacation!

Posted on 15 November 2010

If you're planning a motorhome rental roadtrip in Europe and find yourslef tired of the usual suspects--Italy, France, Spain--and the recently hot tourist spots like Croatia and the Czech Republic then you might want to consider Slovenia. While few know much about the small country, population 2 million, even less have actually visited. A mix of pristine natural beauty (Jessica Bezuindenhout's recent article in the South African Times quoted a local guide that stated that 60% of Slovenia is covered in forest), history, architecture, and culture will meet you when you land in Slovenia.
We're talking a country blessed with a Mediterranean coastline and gorgeous Alps with only a couple of hundred kilometeres drive between them. There are castles (Predjama Castle is perched on a vertigo-inducing cliff), dense woods and caves at Postojna. In capital Ljubljana you can visit its castle and museums as well as the hip Preseren Square before travelling on to the charming area of Bled.

Slovenia is beautiful, relatively safe and extremely affordable for Europe--especially considering the country borders Croatia, Hungary, Austria and Italy. Plus, there is great food and even better shopping. While the drive in your campervan rental from one side of the country to the other might not take long, stopping and discovering all of Slovenia's treasures just might.
