The summer Ljubljana Festival is easily the country's premier cultural event each year, with nearly three months of classical music concerts, opera and ballet events, theatrical performances and much more. The invited artists are both international and Slovene, and frequently include some of the most prestigious names in the world of music and performing arts. The venues are almost as impressive as the performers themselves, with concerts taking place in Cankarjev dom, Križanke and even on boats floating along the Ljubljanica river.

Highlights of Slovenia
One of the oldest settlements in Slovenia, Škofja Loka (Slovene for Bishop's Meadow) is a picture-perfect medieval town that is both one of the easiest and most rewarding day trips from Ljubljana. The incredibly well-preserved old town is the main attraction here, followed by the great museum collection contained in the enormous castle ensconced on the hill above.

This delicious and beautifully crafted crepe is a thing of wonder, the hot/cold combo of flavours is a favourite with customers. Located just 100m along Trubarjeva from Prešeren Square, this fun ice creamery is not a traditional cone and scoop place with Ice Wave (a Spanish franchise) offering something completely different - you get to choose your own flavour combos and toppings then watch as the ice cream is mixed, frozen and shaped into cute rolls before your eyes
The Michelin Guide has finally come to Slovenia and has awarded Hiša Franko with not one, but two Michelin stars! Run by a husband and wife team, Ana is in charge of the kitchen, while Valter's knowledge of Slovenian wines and cheeses is unrivalled. Set in a rustic villa outside the town of Kobarid in the far west of the country, a meal here will not soon be forgotten. Rooms are also available.

Imagine waking up to this view! Who would you take you to Kriško lake this summer?
Bratislava isn’t an expensive city by any stretch of the imagination, but we aren’t afraid to admit that the only thing better than ‘inexpensive’ is ‘entirely free’. The Slovakian capital has loads of things for those who aren’t willing to spend even a single cent, attractions with free entry and a plethora of monuments, statues and unusual architecture. It doesn’t cost a penny to enjoy any of these.

Kraków is in many respects the most Polish of all this nation’s cities. The ancient seat of kings and intelligentsia, Kraków comes steeped in legend and myth, and evokes the most fanciful of images, from dragons under the catacombs of Wawel, to Tartar hordes repelled at the gates, to pigeon-knights waiting for their king to return. Kraków’s postcard-perfect Old Town comes complete with Europe’s largest medieval market square and even a fairy-tale castle overlooking the river.
