ACTIVE, HEALTHY AND GREEN IS THE WAY TO GO. Slovenia is the only European country where the Alps, the Mediterranean, the Karst and the Pannonian Plain meet, and Kočevsko remains one of the most forested areas in Europe where forests cover over 90 % of the landscape. Kočevsko is also one of the last remaining areas where the three large beasts can still be found in their natural environment – brown bear, lynx and wolf. Sounds like every nature lover's dream vacation spot.
