Rail trips through Slovenia with Arena Rail Holidays offer the opportunity to explore one of Europe’s lesser known, but undisputedly beautiful countries. Tiny Slovenia is located in the nether regions of central Europe and houses a population of just 2 million, making it the perfect location for a remote and relaxing escape.

Slovenia sits just above the Adriatic Sea, which it shares with Italy and Croatia, and, as such, has absorbed much of its neighbouring countries’ cultures. The mountainous territory hides many beautiful rivers and forests, while the sun-scorched cliff edges shine an almost luminous shade of silver in the summer glow.

Slovenia by rail

Navigating across Slovenia’s heavily mountainous terrain can be tricky for travellers, but travelling by rail ensures that a safe and quick passage is offered across the country, while still allowing you to soak in all the breathtaking scenery that makes Slovenia such a hidden gem.

Fantastic cities

The capital of Slovenia, Ljubljana, is a gorgeous city surrounded by snowy mountains, hidden from the world and enjoyed by only those privileged enough to visit it. From its winding canals to its proud architecture, the city resembles something from a fairytale, only it is very much real-life.

Food and drink

Slovenia’s cuisine is by no means iconic, but it is delicious all the same. The country has taken a lot of culinary influence from its neighbours, such as the boiled meats of Austria and the layered desserts of Italy. The rich cultivation of food in Slovenia however, means that their ingredients are particularly high quality.

Rich cultural history

For a country with such a small population, Slovenia’s abundance of charming baroque architecture is very impressive. Having over a thousand castles and several thousand churches, it is no surprise that Slovenia plays host to a number of historic sites that are on the UNESCO World Heritage list.
