About Slovenia and Kopertop
Slovenia borders Italy, Austria, Hungary and Croatia with a surface area of just over 20,000 sq km and about two million people. Since 1 May 2004, it has been a new member of the European Union. Its variety and beauty surprise visitors from all over the world. Snowy Alpine peaks and the Triglav National Park with many glacial valleys, gorges, waterfalls, lakes, and crystal-clear wild waters visitors looking for peace in the mountains, as well as sports climbers, skiers, canoeists and gliders in search for relaxation and excitement. The Alpine tourist centre is Bled with an island in the middle of a lake and a mighty castle on top of the cliff. Only a two hours' drive separates mountain lovers from pleasures offered by the Slovenian Mediterranean. Portorož Riviera with great hotels, a casino, congress centres, a marina and green countryside is known all around. A great deal of entertainment and the exquisite Primorska cuisine with fish specialities and top quality wines satisfy even the most pretentious tastes. The Karst region with its caves, plateaus, fields, disappearing streams, and a periodic lake offers many possibilities for exploring and discovering Slovenia. There are many subterranean caves, from the world famous Postojnska Cave with beautiful stalactites, pillars and rocky curtains and UNESCO's heritage Škocjan Caves to grottos that are difficult to access, where climbing is only possible with experienced local guides. In Lipica (Karst), sheltered by century-old lime trees, there is an over 400 year old stud farm of Lipizzaners, the famous white horses of Slovenian origin.
