In Slovenia, when we talk of the Gorenjska region (Upper Carniola), we think of the Alps: the two thousand-metre summits of the Julian Alps which extend from the northwest of Slovenia across the border into Italy; the peaks of the Karavanke range and the Kamnik-Savinje Alps which link the north of Slovenia with Austria, and also, the connected Subalpine region full of surprisingly varied cultural and natural peculiarities. The Slovenian Alps are the northwest of Slovenia.
Nowhere are the highest alpine walls so accessible, while few places are so beloved by kings, presidents and artists from the world over. Where else are such expanses of pristine nature so easily accessible? Slovenia’s Alps are an accessible luxury. In this pastoral idyll life still beats the pulse of ancient times, the dolce vita of medieval towns, with luck forged in age-old ironwork, dancing to the rhythm of the most popular folk melody in the world. …It's so simple and so close!
