In an article headlined “Forget Croatia: Why You Need to Visit The ‘Real’ Balkans”, Bloomberg presents readers with five “under-the-radar” destinations in the region, thus offering some alternatives for those who don’t wish to join the annual migration to the land with one of the longest coastlines in Europe, and one tourist for each of it’s 4.2 million citizens. It also mentions Slovenia, and without using the term “hidden gem”.

The five sites it lists are:

Best for Families: Lake Bled, Slovenia

Best for Road Trippers: Durmitor National Park, Montenegro

Best for Hikers: Accursed Mountains, Albania

Best for Culture Vultures: Mostar, Bosnia

Best for Urbanites: Sofia, Bulgaria

With regard to Slovenia, the related text begins as follows:

While much of the region bakes in the summer heat, Slovenia stays more temperate, thanks to its lake-filled, forest-covered mountains. It also has relatively reliable infrastructure and high-end accommodations. According to Jonny Bealby, founder of the trailblazing travel outfit Wild Frontiers, this accessibility and maneuverability makes Slovenia a “brilliant country for family travel.”

It then goes on to present, among other attractions, Ljubljana Old Town, Bled, Triglav National Park, Vintgar Gorge, Lake Bohinj, Vogel cable car, and Tromeja, the spot near Kranjska gora where Slovenia meets Austria and Italy.
