Slovenia

Slovenia Travel Guide

Make a tour of the modern architectural masterworks of prodigious local talent Jo_e Plecnik, who took the Secessionists Art Nouveau style he learned in Vienna back home (via Prague) to remake his native city along his own, idiosyncratic lines.

Slovenia’s intriguingly minerally whites—especially those produced by iconoclastic vintner Ales Kristancic—are a cult favorite among grape geeks. If you can’t make it to Movia, his winery on the Italian border, visit his wood-paneled wine bar in Ljubljana.
