Slovenia – Small cities and country side

Slovenia to me was the most welcoming little country. The smaller population led to multiple smaller towns – and to me, small towns represent friendlier people, walkable cities, and charm. Slovenia offered everything. I was staying just outside of Kranj with Mojca. She had a dog – Ishie. Ishie needs his walks so I was fortunate enough to wander around the countryside of Slovenia and being able to hop, skip, jump my way into Kranj for some exploration.

Wander Slovenia’s country side is a treat. Often times we stay in cities and only walk concrete. Staying with a local meant I experienced the life of a local. Walking in the woods, hiking the near by mountains, and eating fresh fruits out the backyard garden. Here are a few photos of this Slovenian country-side I talk about:


And then there is Kranj; The closest city to where I was staying. It is mostly a suburb living city but with one street winding along the Kokra river with pastel façades and cobblestone. There are three churches in the town, all with modest attributes. But the best way to view Kranj is by climbing Smarjetna Gora – a 643m hill on the Northwest of the city.

 Slovenia as a country has the feel of a small town. With the comfortable outdoor countryside lifestyle I was welcomed into by Mojca, to the city centres with history and colours aplenty to delight me. Slovenia is an incredibly welcoming country. One that I’ll return to.


  1. Gorgeous! I especially love the photo of the field – the one above the tractor. And the colour of the water in the one with the dog!

    • Thank You. It was such a gorgeous morning walk to take!

  2. These are beautiful photos, Chrystal! I’m trying to persuade my mum to go there next year to try something new – I’ll use this post to try and convince her to try other places in Europe other than France and Italy.

    I’ve NEVER heard a bad word said about Slovenia. The whole place looks like it’s straight out of a fairytale.
