Where is Slovenia
Slovenia is a small country in Central Europe bordering on Italy (W), Austria (N), Hungary (E) and Croatia (S). It is half the size of Switzerland.
However, due to its position on the crossroad between the East and the West, as well as the North and the South, it has a little bit of everything: sunny Alps in the north, mysterious Karst on the south, lowlands with vineyards in the east and green Mediterranean coast on the west.
Slovenia’s alpine world covers the high mountain world of the Julian Alps (Triglav, 2864 m), the Kamniske-Savinjske Alps (Grintovec, 2558 m), and the Karavanke Mountains (Stol, 2236 m).
Alpine world is composed largely of limestone and dolomite and is distinguished by sheer rocky peaks and sharp conical shapes. Glaciers left their mark on the steep slopes and overhangs in shady positions of the northern slopes. Due to the great solubility of the limestone, the vast high mountain karst plateaus are without streams, and small karst relief forms, deep abysses, and underground caves developed, along with strong karst springs at the foot of the mountains.
Snow remains in sinkholes well into spring and because of the barren landscape can be seen from far around. The deep mountain valleys with their fans of limestone gravel and the light green colour of the mountain streams leave a deep impression. Take a look at the WebCam of Triglav Kredarica..

Spring is coming in the mountain. It is not to hot like in summer or cold in winter. Spring is best time to take some break for outdoor travelling. Outdoor hiking is always spring’s first choice. Let enjoy the beautiful nature of Slovenian Mountains.
Misty mountain spring of Julian Alps starts earlier. I love let mountain brook led my way. Take your hiking boots, immerse in the beautiful sunshine and go to the summit..
