- Travel and Places
Slovenia is an insanely beautiful country! It's gorgeous lake Bled is located in the west side of the country in Radovljica, surrounded by huge mountains that clouds roll across the tops of. I spent two weeks there teaching english to the youth there. It honestly changed my life! To see the culture of a country that was only twenty years old, and to become a part of that for a short time is a feeling that is indescribable.
Like I said, this country is young. Previously know as Yugoslavia, this country had some hard times in the 1990s. Communism collapsed, and the country erupted in a civil war. Eventually Yugoslavia spilt into four different countries: Croatia, Macedonia, Serbia, and Slovenia. Thankfully, these countries are all recovering well from there past, but Slovenia is thriving! It has the most Olympians per capita, and everyone there exercises a lot. If you go, a ride around Radovljica on a bike would be an experience you won't forget.
Would you consider going to Slovenia
Also, their architecture is incredible. Downtown Radovljica is made up of building from the 1500s, the streets are paved with cobblestone, and every fifteen minutes the Catholic church bells ring. It is such a beautiful feeling to wake up in the morning to birds chirping and the bells ringing, then going to your window and seeing castles on mountains, locals paddling on the clear blue lake, bakers making their famous apple strudel, and smelling the air. Even the air makes you feel like a new person! Slovenia is a lost paradise that deserves so much more credit than it's received. This country is overflowing with beauty, talent, culture, intelligence, and peace. When you get to Slovenia, it's like home.
