Slovenia’s becoming a top travel destination thanks to its 2hr flight time from the UK and because it’s basically really, really beautiful. Take in the pretty (mostly pedestrianised) surroundings with a drink at the cafes along the Ljubljanica river before paying a visit to Ljubljana Castle where you can get an incredible view of the city. Later, head to Metelkova Mesto for something a bit different – it’s a commune with live performances and concerts.
