WHERE TO STAY
Since becoming independent, Slovenia has transformed from a fairly unknown country, to a very desired and recognized tourist destination. During this time, Slovenia did quite a lot on holiday facilities, which have been updated and increased significantly. Therefore, you can choose from the complete set of traditional holiday accommodations, offered by this developed tourist country.
Among the hotels, those smaller and more boutique, which are usually located in beautifully renovated historic buildings, are increasingly popular. Still, popularity is dominated by smaller family accommodations (pensions, tourist farms, guest houses), where you will feel that genuine Slovenian hospitality, mostly supported by tasty home-made food. Between these, the number of tourist farms, where you will get to know the true authentic Slovenia, is particularly high.

Accommodation prices are lower in comparison with other developed European countries, but of course they differ slightly depending on the location. The highest prices are usually in tourist centers: Ljubljana, Maribor, Bled, Bohinj and on the coast. The main season (and thus prices at its peak) is somewhere between mid-June and the end of August, except in Ljubljana, where prices are highest throughout the year. Ski resorts have another main (winter) season from December to February. Health resorts usually have consistent prices throughout the year - if, of course, we do not take into account occasional discounts, which are entirely dependent on a particular resort.
