Taste Ljubljana is a culinary project which brought back to popularity a number of Ljubljana’s traditional dishes made from locally sourced ingredients. The author of the project, renowned ethnologist Janez Bogataj, selected once popular dishes while renowned local chefs adapted their recipes for the modern times. The project was joined by many local restaurants which are now offering an authentic taste of Ljubljana.
Trnulja Country Estate is a very special place for a very special holiday. Located on the outskirts of Ljubljana, it combines production of organic cereals, flour, and plant oils and spreads with tourism and excellence in culinary arts by one of the most renowned Slovenian chefs, Slavko Adamlje. They can organize your experience in different ways including organized trips to the surrounding Ljubljana Marshes, an area of amazing natural diversity.
Terme Snovik Spa near Kamnik are surrounded with forests and proudly commited to their sustainable spa concept. They use energy from renewable resources, save it wherever possible, provide guests with a local food, as much as possible and follow a clear environmental policy. They are different from most of other Slovenia’s spa resorts because of their high altitude location. Their thermal water is, among other things, rich in magnesium and calcium.
