This is another combo of two countries that complement each other like strawberries and cream. The very Balkan coat of Croatia makes for such a beautiful contrast to the Julian Alps of Slovenia. We absolutely love making itineraries combining these two beautiful countries. 

You enjoy the coastal towns with medieval forts and very Mediterranean islands in Croatia and then you experience the very Northern European towns and alpine country of Slovenia. While the influence of Italy can be seen in both these countries, Slovenia feels like an extension of Austria and its snow covered peaks while Croatia feels like an extension of Greece. 

The countries also abound in other geographic features like the beautiful Plitvice Lakes National Park in Croatia to the krast region with beautiful caves like Postonja and Skokjan caves in Slovenia. While island hopping is a must-do in Croatia, vineyard visits and wine tastings are a pleasure in Slovenia. 

The best part about this combo is that both the countries are so good at what they offer! While one can easily say that Croatia’s coast and islands are one of the best in Europe the beauty of the Julian Alps and the Triglav National Park in Slovenia is also incomparable.
