Slovenia is a small but very beautiful country. It's the size of Wales with a population of only 2 million people. Around 60% of the country is covered in forest, with a third of the country being protected.
The Goriska region is in the west of Slovenia, close to Italy and Austria. The Julian Alps, part of the Triglav National Park, run through the Goriska region and offer fantastic skiing, walking and climbing opportunities. Triglav is Slovenia's highest mountain peak.
You will find that the region is very sunny in the summer months and can be blanketed in snow in the winter. It is beautiful in either season.
Podmelec is a small and peaceful village set on the side of the Baca valley above the Baca river, on the edge of the Triglav National Park and only 15 to 20 minutes drive away from the Soca river and valley. Both the Baca & the Soca are excellent for fishing.
Also available nearby are paragliding and rafting, with the immediate area offering numerous opportunities for walking and cycling, whilst ski areas are around an hours drive away.
