Camping holidays in Slovenia
Slovenia is Europe in miniature. It’s a stunning country that’s a whirlwind of different scenery, from glorious beaches to snow-capped peaks. With more than half the country covered in dense forests and woodland, this is also one of Europe’s greenest lands and a third of the landscape is protected.
When you’re camping in Slovenia you’ll find the mild climate is ideal for exploring the architectural delights of Slovenia’s cities, where you’ll discover Gothic churches, ancient castles and a vibrant café culture. Enjoy discovering the local wines, go hiking, or try a spot of fishing in the local lake.
Our campsite in Slovenia is at Terme Catež, in the Spodnjeposavska (Lower Sava) region, close to the Croatian border. Canvas guests stay in luxury two-storey apartments, each with air-conditioning and its own terrace and barbeque.
The heart of the resort is the Summer Thermal Riviera –a spectacular ten thousand square metres of swimming pools and waterslides, all heated by thermal spa water, and there is also an indoor water park, which is open all year round.
Things to do when you're camping in Slovenia
Brežice Brežice Castle houses the local museum but is also worth visiting for its extravagant Baroque frescoes. The Castle’s spectacular Knight’s Hall is one of the main venues for the Seviqc Brežice early music festival, which lasts for several weeks during the summer. Another of the town’s landmarks is the medieval-style water tower, which was built in 1914. It now houses a pub.
Ljubljana The architectural treasures of the Slovenian capital include beautiful examples of Art Nouveau – the best known are the Cooperative Business Bank Building and the Dragon Bridge – and ‘Plecnik's Ljubljana’, the remodelling of the city during the 1920s and 1930s. Ljubljana Castle overlooks the city centre and the steep hill is easily conquered by a ride on the funicular railway. The Tivoli Park is full of variety: hire a bike to explore this green oasis to the full.
Postojna Caves The Postojna Caves system has been a tourist attraction for nearly 200 years, and its halls are so immense that one of them is regularly used for concerts. The spectacular caverns and passageways are explored by well-kept pathways and an exciting underground train ride.
Zagreb The Croatian capital is close enough for a day trip over the border. Zagreb is a bustling and vibrant city, with plenty of museums and art galleries to explore. A highlight is the Technical Museum, which is packed with old technology, from aircraft to cameras. The Zagreb Card provides unlimited travel on public transport and discounts at most museums and reduced prices in many shops and restaurants.
Pleterje Open-Air Museum The Pleterje Open-Air Museum is a careful reconstruction of Slovenia’s rural past and the traditional skills of its builders. Friendly farm animals roam among original thatched buildings arranged as a traditional farmyard. The potter’s workshop doubles as a gift shop. You can also visit the gothic church in the nearby monastery, and hire bikes to explore the surrounding countryside.
