Central Slovenia is the meeting point of the Alpine world and karst. In addition to the capital city Ljubljana there are a number of natural and cultural attractions such as the Ljubljana Marshes, Velika Planina, Polhov Gradec and Posavje hills, caves, karst fields and tourist farms.
Velika Planina in the Kamnik Alps is the oldest herdsmen settlement in Europe with more than a hundred shepherds' huts. The forms of these are quite special and interesting.
In winter on Velika Planina there is a ski resort with 6 kilometers of slopes and it depends only on the amount of natural snow.
