A full-length Bradt guide to this secret corner of Europe; once part of the larger republic of Yugoslavia, Slovenia is now an independent country, with Alpine scenery in the north to rival Austria and charming Adriatic coastal towns. In addition to full practical information and coverage of the accessible capital, Ljubljana, the Bradt guide explores off-the-beaten-track Slovenia, and includes visits to wine-growing regions, hiking in the Julian Alps, the caves of the Karst region, white-water rafting and skiing. A strong emphasis on culture and history is combined with everything the independent traveler needs for visiting Slovenia's attractions.
