The north of the country is dominated by towering mountain ranges that provide plentiful challenges for hikers and skiers. In the west, pure alpine streams strengthen as they descend into the valleys, becoming churning white-water rapids, ideal for rafting and canyoning. Elsewhere, picturesque lakeside paths provide perfect terrain for cyclists. If you love the outdoors, it’s time you got acquainted with Europe’s adventure playground. Slovenia’s Alpine region features all year round resorts, congress centres, special and other meetings venues that can host a variety of meetings and events up to 550 delegates.
Breathe the fresh Alpine air and enjoy the image of paradise
Bled and Bohinj, alpine pearls lying on the edge of the Triglav National Park. Having enjoyed protected status since 1924, it is one of the oldest national parks in Europe. It is named after Mount Triglav, the highest peak in Slovenia (2,864 metres) and represents the pre-eminent symbol of the Slovenian nation. As a folk saying has it: “You’re not a real Slovenian if you haven’t been to Triglav yet.”
The island of Lake Bled, an icon of Slovenian tourism. The platform at the peak of the island houses, a medieval section with Baroque alterations and a charming bell tower. The island probably had a special meaning in prehistoric times already, and Slovenian famous poet Prešeren praised its Slavic sanctuary. How about Alpine meetings with a twist or iconic meetings with character in Bled?
Etched between the mountains of Bohinj, Lake Bohinj is the largest glacial lake in Slovenia. Various meetings and events can be held at the first ecological hotel in Slovenia, Bohinj ECO Hotel. Seven lakes are spread across the valley below Triglav, which is commonly referred to as the Seven Lakes Valley in Triglav National Park.
Brdo Estate – The Domain of Delights is situated in a pristine green setting and a tradition of credibility, all make the estate one of a major player in the regional MICE industry. Guests today expect different experiences, and Brdo’s assets are perfectly suited to offer a variety of content wrapped in historical storytelling. It might sound like a cliché, but the beauty of Brdo, a protected Natura 2000 site, is something that has to be seen to be believed. Another advantage Brdo Estate possesses is its long-standing experience with state protocol, which always demands immaculate execution.
