Slovenia is one of the most photogenic countries in Europe, no doubt about it. Its world-known natural beauty is celebrated in many travel magazines and lately all around the popular social media.

According to the accounts of many travel bloggers and travel-based Instagrammers – the country’s 5 most popular spots for a great shot are Velika planina, Ojstrica/Lake Bled Viewpoint, Logar Valley, Piran and Lake Jasna.

Well, let’s see some photos!

1.Velika planina

Summer, spring, winter or fall – Velika planina is a timeless location which looks a bit like a scene from a Lord of the Rings.  A mountaintop pasture of the Slovenian mountains known as the Kamnik–Savinja Alps is a place for great hiking and a perfect escape from all the stress. Velika planina is a journey back to some more simple times —- and that’s why the modern Instagrammers are so crazy about it.


Velika planina is the site of one of Europe’s few surviving high mountain herdsmen’s villages where traditional Alpine herdsmen’s culture is still alive.

2. Ojstrica/Lake Bled Viewpoint

If you’re looking for the famous Lake Bled viewpoint, it’s highly likely you’re referring to Ojstrica. To get to the Ojstrica it does take a little effort. However, by following Instagram accounts of some popular travel bloggers you can see that the jaw-dropping views are well worth the uphill hike.

3. Logar Valley

It takes just one look at Logar Valley (Logarska dolina in Slovenian language), and it’s pretty obvious why this place is so ‘insta-famous’!

The Logar Valley is one of the most beautiful alpine glacial valleys in Europe and flows into the Kamnik-Savinja Alps from the north. 

In 1987, the Logar Valley received protected status as a  landscape park encompassing 24.75 square kilometres (9.56 sq mi).

4. Piran

Everyone falls in love with picturesque Piran, a town in southwestern Slovenia! It is known for its renaissance architecture and some great sea-food restaurants. Adding a beach life and amazing  panorama over the Gulf of Piran to all this, and … you are under a spell!

5. Lake Jasna

Only 2 km from Kranjska Gora, you will find Lake Jasna, with the little river flowing alongside. The views of host of mighty mountains embracing the crystal clear water is so intense that you take it home with you. You can also sit down and relax with a knowledgeable uncle Vitranc who came down from the Alps to teach us about simple life.
