Slovenian traditional cuisine: from sweet to salty and all in between

Slovenian traditional cuisine: from sweet to salty and all in between

Slovenia is a wonderful country, known for its beautiful nature, extreme sports such as Soca rafting Bovec and Canyoning Bovec and friendly yet a little reserved locals. Another Slovenian asset, as it is continuously confirmed by tourists, is their incredible traditional cuisine. Slovenian style of cooking is a mixture of different cultures. Their geographical placement among nations with very specific culinary styles created a very unique selection of traditional dishes, that are inspired by their neighbors. This includes a number of different strudels, which are inspired by Austrian cuisine, sweets that are taken from Hungary and pizza and pasta, which is regularly served in Italy. Slovenians put their own twist on the dishes, making them even more delicious than the originals. 

Across the map: from Bovec to Prekmurje

The Soca valley is not known only for its Soca rafting (Bovec) and Canyoning (Bovec). In addition to that, it presents the peak of Slovenian cuisine. If you go there to do some Soca rafting (Bovec) or canyoning (Bovec), you simply must stop in Kobarid. There you will find House Franko, arguably the best Slovenian restaurant with the world-famous chef, Ana Roš. If we move towards the east, we will soon come across a variety of different dishes. Various strudels with different fillings, soups and stews such as Jota and Ričet and pickled cabbage with sausage are all types of food that continue to impress the guests that visit the land below the Alps. Moving even more towards the east, we will find one of Slovenia’s most famous cakes. Made in Prekmurje, the delicious layered cake, Prekmurska gibanica, never disappoints. We should not, however, forget about another famous cake. Just as delicious, the cream cake of Bled, carries a significant place among the most popular Slovenian dishes as well.
