Winter Wanderlust: Reasons to Choose Slovenia as Your Cold-Weather Escape

Dec 15, 2023 | Uncategorized @sl

Does the cold weather get you dreaming of your next travel destination? Consider breaking away from the typical cold-weather destinations and embarking on an offbeat adventure in Slovenia. Nestled in the heart of Europe, this small yet enchanting country boasts a winter wonderland. In this blog, the CUBO team will share with you reasons why Slovenia should be at the top of your list for a cold-weather getaway.

Shredding Slopes of the Julian Alps

The Julian Alps, a lesser-known gem in the world of winter destinations, provide the perfect backdrop for outdoor enthusiasts. Whether you’re into skiing, snowshoeing, or simply hiking through snow-laden trails, Slovenia offers a playground for nature lovers. Take a short ride to Krvavec or Vogel, where the slopes are as smooth as butter. Whether you’re a pro or a first-timer, you will find the perfect slope for you!

CUBO team recommends Krvavec, located just 20 minutes by car from our Hotel Beyond its unparalleled convenience, Krvavec boasts 30 kilometers of groomed ski runs, a snow park, and the added allure of night sledding beneath star-studded skies. The resort’s appeal extends beyond the slopes, with picturesque hiking trails and charming chalets strategically dotting the landscape, offering a perfect refuge for those seeking a moment of relaxation. In case you don’t have equipment with you, don’t worry; you can rent for a day everything you need.


Lake Bled’s Icy Elegance

While Lake Bled is a summer favorite, winter transforms it into a magical, icy paradise. The iconic Bled Castle perched on a hill overlooking the frozen lake, creates a fairytale-like atmosphere. If you’re feeling adventurous, try ice skating for a unique experience against the backdrop of a medieval castle. Our advice is to divide a bit more time to see Lake Bohinj as well. This beauty is just a 30-minute drive from Bled, and is, in fact, the country’s largest lake, which challenges the captivating beauty of Bled, especially during the winter months.

Don’t forget to try „Kremšnita“, a delicious vanilla pastry that is amazing in every season.


Culinary Delights:

Winter is the perfect time to indulge in hearty Slovenian cuisine. Warm up with traditional dishes and finish with Potica, a delicious nut-filled pastry. Pair your meal with a glass of local wine or a shot of schnapps for the complete Slovenian culinary experience.

Vibrant Ljubljana

When other cities are hibernating, Ljubljana is throwing a winter party. Hotel CUBO puts you right in the middle of it all. Stroll through the streets lit up like a Christmas tree, hit the festive markets, and soak in the holiday magic. Stroll along the Ljubljanica River, adorned with charming bridges and historic buildings. The city’s vibrant cultural scene ensures that there’s always something happening, from winter markets to cultural events.

Even though temperatures during the winter are usually below 0, the people of Slovenia make the place feel very warm. Hotel CUBO staff is there for you if you need assistance or simply want to chat. ????

Ultimate Ice-skating adventure

If you want to go to a quieter part of this beautiful country and still stay near Ljubljana, the northern part is certainly worth a visit, which you should definitely not miss if you truly enjoy the charms of ice skating. Lake Planšar is considered one of the most recognizable tourist locations in Slovenia because, in its refined geographical shape, it resembles a heart, and every day, in “that style,” it warmly welcomes thousands of tourists a day.

Don’t miss the opportunity to experience the sunset at the outdoor skating rink, on a track that has been built according to safety regulations, so it is suitable for all ages. Your ice skates have been waiting in the closet for a long time for this moment, so from the CUBO Hotel, take a drive to this magical destination and enjoy!
