Which Slovenian culinary treat is going to help us understand the character and personality of stunning Slovenia? It’s a close thing between Prekmurska Gibanica and the ubiquitous Kremna Rezina, with the kremsnita getting our vote as the culinary metaphor for your Slovenian cycling holiday…
Every Slovenian region is proud of its own version of kremsnita – and will proudly claim it’s the best in Slovenia! It’s the same with the landscapes, history and architecture that you encounter between the magnificent Julian Alps and Lake Bohinj, then down the Sava valley to stylish Ljubljana.
We defy any pudding fan to dislike kremsnita and the same goes for the cycling paradise that is Slovenia. This is still a remarkably undiscovered cycling holiday destination, yet it offers so many contrasting ‘flavours’ – just like that vanilla pie!
Slovenia’s network of cycle routes is extensive and well maintained. From Mount Triglav to Ljubljana, the scenery is a feast for the eyes with aquamarine lakes, snow-capped peaks, charming mountain villages and romantic castles aplenty. Quiet back lanes and stylish city streets invite exploration as your cycling holiday reveals the diversity, rich flavour and cycling-friendly summer weather of this Balkan gem. It really is like taking a two-wheeled bite of a cycling kremsnita. Slovenia has everything!
Yes! Cycling holidays here really are the two-wheeled equivalent of the classic Slovenian kremsnita. Thin layers of puff pastry mirror the reassuring solidity of the Julian Alps, while the whipped cream represents the rich culture and history you’ll encounter on your holiday. Then there’s the sublime vanilla custard representing the sophistication of Ljubljana. Start with one, enjoy the second and finish with the third. Kremsnita is like the biggest, most delicious ‘hug on a plate’ you could possibly imagine at the end of another ride!
