For a country of just two million people, Slovenia has much more than its share of sights and attractions. Readers pick their favourites outside of capital Ljubljana
As you walk round Lake Bled, past Villa Bled, a little sign saying “Tearoom” points upwards through the trees. It gives no indication of the wow factor this tearoom commands. Once used by President Tito, it recently reopened with the original furniture and photos. Have a cup of coffee on the patio with its stunning floor mosaics of wild animals, while you look out over the lake towards the church, and the castle beyond. It is a treasure of pure elegance, the prices are ridiculously reasonable and the coffee just gorgeous!
