    Adriatic sea

    The Adriatic Sea, a large inlet of the Mediterranean, has been admired by sea-lovers through the Roman, Byzantine, and Venetian eras, an admiration that continues to this day.  The 46 km stretch of Slovenian coast, which touches the shining and calm Adriatic waters, is speckled by historical sites, breathtaking vistas, and vibrant culture.  Whether you stay in Portorož, Piran, Koper, or Izola, you are sure to return from your trip with pleasant memories.

    Lake Bled

    Lake Bled is known throughout the world for its magical beauty and healing atmosphere.  Plunge into Bled’s refreshing waters for a long idyllic swim before relaxing in the grass and shade by the lake or taking a stroll through the charming town.  Take a boat to an island situated in the center of the lake, and visit Bled’s ancient church, still decorated with Gothic frescos.  Sample Bled’s traditional dessert, Kremšnita, a delicious vanilla and custard cream cake.  Whether you are a season swimmer or training for your first competition, Bled is a wonderful swimming location.

    Lake Bohinj

    Slovenia’s extraordinary Lake Bohinj is truly a hidden gem.  Located at the foot of the Julian Alps, which seem to rise out of the lake itself, Lake Bohinj is 4.35 km long and 1 km wide.  The crisp and pristine waters are surrounded by spectacular views and shaded forests.  For any swimmers looking for a quiet and serene retreat, away from thick tourist throngs, Bohinj is an ideal destination.

    Visas are not required to enter Slovenia for EU citizens. You will need a passport. As a British passport holder, you may stay as a visitor for three months. General Travel Information is available. All other non-UK passport holders must check their own country’s entry requirements for Slovenia.
