While it may be tempting to just chill out while holidaying in Velenje, remember, the surrounding region's treasure-trove of natural sights, cities and towns await. Zidani Most, 19 miles (31 kilometers) to the north, and Laze v Tuhinju, 19 miles (31 kilometers) to the northeast of Velenje are also waiting to be discovered.
Approximately 30 miles (48 kilometers) to the northeast of Velenje is Maribor, a regional city where you can visit University of Maribor, War and Peace Memorial and Ljudski Vrt Stadium. Celje Castle, Mariborsko Pohorje and Maribor Cathedral are just a sample of the other attractions in Maribor that should be included on every visitor's itinerary.
Houses of faith are often great windows into a region's spiritual and religious cultures. The cathedrals around Velenje are no exception. Slovenia is a good destination for those into gardens.
Enjoy an experience you'll never forget while you are here. Connect with the daredevil within and try hot air ballooning! When the temperature goes down, visit Slovenia. Pull on your woollens and have a go at the wintersports here. Try skiing or cross-country skiing.
At the finish of your trip, pack your suitcase and wish Slovenia "Nasvidenje" (farewell).
