Upper Carniola

Upper Carniola is, without a doubt, one of the best-known regions of Slovenia. It stretches from the Austrian border at Kranjska Gora and Jesenice, Bled and Kranj to the capital, Ljubljana. Framed by the Karavanke Mountains, the Kamnik Alps and the Triglav National Park, Upper Carniola is a popular destination for outdoor enthusiasts. If you like to take it a little easier, you should definitely make a detour to Lake Bled and take a typical wooden boat (pletna) to the magical island. The Lake Bohinjsko and the Velika Planina high alpine pasture are also definitely worth a visit. Those interested in the culture of the region should spend an evening in Begunje and listen to the popular folk music of Slavko Avsenik.
