Slovenia's Summer of Festivals

more than a year ago
Slovenia might be small but that doesn’t mean it is all prim and proper when it comes to its summer entertainment. Festivals play every bit as big a part of the summer schedule here as anywhere else on the continent, with everything from multi-day music festivals to cultural extravaganzas to beer festivals on the agenda. The entire country is covered too, from the alpine towns to the north to the vineyards of the east, the buzzing capital in the centre, film festivals at the seaside and the cviček in the south. Follow the links below for more information on some of the goings-on this summer!
