Come and visit romantic bays, fabulous small towns and Venetian architecture on your yacht charter in Slovenia. Despite its length of just 45 kilometres, the coastline of Slovenia is very attractive. The country, often also called the “Riviera of the Adriatic”, is appreciated by charter guests for its manageability, mild climate, towns steeped in history and friendly people.

General Info

It’s a known fact that the countries of the former Soviet bloc are fast emerging as hot tourist destinations and for Slovenia which shares a bit of the Alps and a little bit of the Adriatic, this couldn’t be truer. Many people come here on a sailing holiday for quality cruising territories, low prices and great local atmosphere.

Though not great in size, Slovenia makes up for it in beauty as the natural landscape here is extremely varied, with anything from snowy mountain peaks and rolling hills in the Northeast to flat plains and golden beaches in the Southwest. So there’s a little bit for everyone to enjoy on a boat rental.

The Adriatic Sea attracts most of the touristic flow with resorts like Portoroz and Izola on the Istria coast being the most famous. These aren’t new additions to the Slovenian littoral but they have received a make-over in an effort from the authorities to stimulate tourism in the region. Another sailing hot spot is the Piran Bay which has lots of modern ports and marinas.

Fun can also be had inland, like in the Julian Alps with the very picturesque Lake Bled and Mount Triglav, the country’s highest peak. There is a famous national park here visited by thousands each year and was established in 19824. The capital city of Ljubljana, with its old Baroque and Art Nouveau buildings draws its fair share of visitors.

Slovenia is a great place to visit as it’s situated at a geographic crossroads, in between eastern and western Europe, a fact which is also reflected in its culture and traditions which borrow heavily both from the Slavic and from the Latin peoples.

Law & Order

Slovenia is no different from other European countries when it comes to the sailing legislation. As always, it would be better if you had a valid skipper license or some other document to prove your previous experience with boats and sailing in general. That way, it would be much easier for any company to provide a temporary license for your sailing or motor yacht charter.

If you don’t own a license yet, this would be the best place to get one, as Slovenia has a long maritime tradition and is renowned for its experienced sailors. On top of this, there is the added bonus of the license being valid in Italy and as well.

Most tourists won’t need a visa to travel to Slovenia, especially those coming from all over Europe and the Americas. If you come here on a sailing holiday you need a passport that is valid for at least the duration of the stay which is limited to 90 days every six months. That means that during any given year, a maximum of 180 days can be spent in Slovenia without requiring a visa.
