Summer offers a wealth of opportunities for recreation, cultural activities, fun and outdoor relaxation. With its beautiful nature and rich cultural and historical heritage, Slovenia offers infinite possibilities for an active and healthy vacation spent by the sea or crystal clear rivers, or in the mountains, woods and the underground world of caves. In August, this green country also offers a wide variety of festival events. This way, the organisers of various events would like to bring culture closer to the wider Slovenian audience and visitors from abroad.

The creators of the Slovenia Weekly newsletter will also be taking a green, active and healthy vacation. We kindly invite you to read our newsletter again on 2nd September, when we get back.
