Simon Požek

Hi! My name is Simon Požek and I'm from Koper, right here on the Slovenian coast.

I am, the editor and co-founder of this project, which is the fruit of my passion for researching and presenting the beauty of our country.


Every morning, as I wake up and gaze upon the blue Adriatic Sea and the snow-capped peaks of the Julian Alps, I'm reminded of the incredible beauty that Slovenia holds.


This small but enchanting country, tucked between Italy and Croatia, is a hidden gem waiting to be explored.


When I decided to create Visit-slovenia.eu, I set myself an ambitious task: to create a completely new experience of discovering Slovenia for visitors from all over the world.


With this project, we set ourselves the goal:

to present Slovenia in a way that you cannot find in classic tourist guides. It is more than just a list of attractions.

This is an interactive journey that takes you through the hidden corners of our country, where history, culture, nature and the hospitality of our people are intertwined.


Every page, every photo and every tip you find here reflects my personal experience and knowledge of Slovenia.

Through years of in-depth research, we have created this project to give you a real experience of our wonderful place.


I believe in the idea that travel should not only be about visiting places but also about connecting with people, tasting local cuisine, discovering hidden treasures and creating unforgettable memories.


Thank you for choosing to discover Slovenia through our page. I am sure you will experience this magical land through our eyes in a way that will inspire and enchant you.

Welcome to your perfect adventure in Slovenia!

Visit Lake Bled: A Fairytale Beginning


Embark on a 40-minute drive from Slovenia's capital, Ljubljana, and find yourself at the fairy-tale destination of Lake Bled. This scenic lake, surrounded by the Julian Alps, is Slovenia's only lake with an island crowned by the Church of Mary the Queen, built in the 16th century. Rent a rowboat to paddle to the island or take a leisurely walk around the lake's rim. Don't miss exploring Slovenia's oldest castle, perched on a precipice with a history dating back to the 11th century.

Julian Alps: Majestic Peaks and Tranquil Lakes


In the northwestern corner of Slovenia, the Julian Alps boast the country's tallest mountains, with Mount Triglav standing proudly at 2364 meters.
