(ANSA) - LJUBLJANA - Slovenia is the best kept ''tourist secret'' in Europe, according to, web portal which deals mainly with UK travellers. ''Slovenia remains an undiscovered gem for many British tourists, but the small taste we've given here hopefully shows why that shouldn't be so'', according to a post published today.

The travel blog then focuses on the many opportunities that Slovenia offers: easy access ''both to the Mediterranean Sea on one hand, and the Alps on the other, with Mount Triglav, the highest peak, centre of a national park and a symbol of the nation''.

Another opportunity to be seized is ''urban tourism'': and the blog gives 'special mention' to the capital city, Ljubljana, with its castle and the beautiful historic centre, designed by renowned architect Joze Plecnik. Among the attractions highlighted by are ''spas and health resorts'', not far from the Region of Styria (Austria), well known for its very good wine and for the Pohorje mountains. Special mention is also given to to the Karst, with the Postojna Cave and the Skocjan Cave, and the town of Lipica, famous for its thoroughbred horses. (ANSA).
