Comprising a rich heritage and interesting culture, Slovenia is sadly overlooked in many travel bucket lists. The rich history and stunning sites are some that shouldn't be missed as the country offers everything from comedy, cuisine, and dance to film, literature, music, and theatre. The diverse architectural heritage alone is worth exploring; many tours will take visitors through the thousands of breathtaking churches, castles, ruins, and special structures. Many UNESCO World Heritage Sites are in Slovenia, such as the Skocjan Caves, the Idrija mercury mining site, and the prehistoric pile dwellings in the Ljubljana Marshes. Some of the festivals, fairs, and events that shouldn't be missed include the Punch Festival, the Ljubljana Summer Festival, and the Pippi Longstocking Festival, which is perfect for younger visitors.
