Slovenia has the word LOVE in its name, so it is a true paradise for romantic experiences. It is full of hidden dream spots where you can enjoy your unforgettable moment, be it a wedding or an engagement in the idyllic surroundings of Slovenian landscape or at one of the many castles. Or you can lavishly pamper yourself at a spa. Spending a night in a tree, experiencing your wedding kiss high in the mountains, ringing the bell of wishes, or dining with a view of the sunset over the sea. When sharing experiences with another person, romance can take many forms.
Create a fairytale atmosphere in special accommodation facilities
Magical glamping spots can be found in different parts of Slovenia. Little fairytale tree houses or luxurious tents will create an unforgettable romantic atmosphere in the glow of candles and dim lighting. The unique confluence of tradition and modern comfort will excite you on every step you take. Spend the night like bees in small honeycomb-shaped houses, in converted wine barrels or in shepherds’ cottages surrounded with the scent of fresh herbs or wood.

Making wishes come true at lake bled

Some 99 steps separate you from the bell of wishes and the small Baroque church. Enjoy dinner at Bled Castle with a view of the lake. Surprise your loved ones with a carriage ride around the lake. Treat yourself to an excellent Bled cream cake.
