Terme Krka where you’ll find wellness, sport and a balanced diet

Surrounded by nature to find your well being

Discovering a Relais & Chtâeaux hotel in Slovenia

I’m in Slovenia, about an hour and a half from Trieste, in a perfectly positioned location because it’s just an hour from Lubljana and an hour from Zagabria. First of all I have to say that here, at Grad Otočec, the food is incredible (link article), but that’s not all; it’s a lovely place to…
