Slovenia

Slovenia, a nation in Central Europe, is known for its mountains, ski resorts and lakes. On Lake Bled, a frigid lake sustained by natural aquifers, the town of Bled contains a congregation bested islet and a cliffside medieval mansion. In Ljubljana, Slovenia's capital, extravagant exteriors blend with the twentieth century engineering of local Jože Plečnik, whose notorious Tromostovje (Triple Bridge) ranges the firmly bending Ljubljanica River.
