'Small is beautiful' certainly applies to Slovenia, which is only half the size of Switzerland. With a population of just two million, the landscape is still essentially rural. Amongst these industrious people one senses an orderly contentment and a feeling that everything is in tune with nature. Tour Slovenia by car or on foot; the opportunities are endless------------------------ The jagged snow-capped peaks of the Julian Alps contrast with fertile valleys, full of colour and activity. Porous limestone rock has created the karst landscape; typical features can be seen everywhere and are exciting to explore - from underground rivers emerging as cascading waterfalls to narrow gorges, caves and rock arches. The mountain valleys are immaculate, with strips of vegetables and corn amidst the hayfields and orchards. There are hop-growing areas and beautiful vineyards.---------------- This guide covers the entire country except for the very northeast and southeast; however, there is an emphasis on the Julian Alps.- ---------------- 6 car tours (with accompanying touring map and larger-scale map of the Julian Alps), 60 long and short walks (illustrated with 1:50,000 topo maps), 25 picnic suggestions. Free online update service with specific route change information on the publisher's website, maintained daily.------------------ The 'Landscapes' series, with 50 destinations, has been dubbed 'the blue Bibles' by the Sunday Times and led to Sunflower being one of only four publishers (from a field of 18) chosen as a Which? Recommended Provider of Guidebooks.------------- THE guide to Slovenia's beauty. The book was easy to use, providing us with all the detail needed to plan where to go in Slovenia - from simple short walks/drives to more adventurous challenges along more strenuous routes. We had to decide on the trips that we would hope to complete as part of our 2 week holiday. We could not have chosen a better publication to guide us in those choices. The book was simply the best investment which we made in preparation for what was a memorable trip. --(GTK, Amazon)-------------- Amazingly accurate. This book was invaluable on our recent holiday to Slovenia. We only did the walks in the area we were staying but they were described in such detail that you couldn't go wrong. --(DEG, Amazon)
