The stunning beauty of this country which was formerly part of the Yugoslavia confederation is revealed from a bird's eye view, including stunning aerial shots of the glacial Lake Bled and its prominent island, and the 11th-century Bled Castle which overlooks the lake from a steep cliff. It is one of the most iconic scenes to be found in all of Europe.
Slovenia by DJI Mavic Pro
When Yugoslavia followed the footsteps of the USSR and dissolved in the early 1990's, the new nation of Slovenia inherited some of the most spectacular scenery from the former federation. In this video, AirVuz Drone Video Award nominee Hamza_Mujtaba uses his DJI Mavic Pro drone to give us a bird's eye tour of this beautiful country, which lies at the crossroads of Central and Southeastern Europe. It includes footage of Lake Bled, Lake Bohinj, Savica Waterfall, Boka Waterfall and other scenic spots.
Bled's Lake is in the Julian Alps of Slovenia. It takes less than an hour to drive there from the Slovenian capital, Ljubljana. The church featured in this 4K aerial piece by Alberto Ardit is Cerkev Marijinega Vnebovzetja or the Pilgrimage Church of the Assumption of Mary. It is reached only by boat and has been there since the 9th century (although its current form has only been around since the late 17th century). It is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Slovenia.
Julian Alps: Dolkova Spica
The Julian Alps extend from northern Italy westwards into Slovenia. A sub-range of the larger Alps system, their highest peak is Mt. Triglav, which stands 2.9k meters (9.4k ft) and lies in Slovenia's Triglav National Park. In this video, contributor Jus Medic and a friend took a drone and hiked to the top of Dolkova Spica, a slightly smaller mountain in Slovenia, capturing Mt. Triglav in the distance. The epic aerial views of the Slovenian mountains are spectacular.
Begunje: Slovenian Cultural Treasure
Begunje is a small town in northern Slovenia, not far from the country's long northern border with Austria. The town, which dates to the 11th century, is home to an extremely well preserved town center and a magnificent castle which originally dates to the 15th century and which was rebuilt in the 17th century. Contributor Kolman Aerial flies his drone over this breathtaking sight, which resembles what one might see in the Austrian or Swiss Alps of Central Europe.
Pericnik is a waterfall in northern Slovenia, near the country's northern border with Austria. It is actually a system of two waterfalls, with the lower (larger) falls having a drop of 52 meters (171 ft.). Situated in Triglav national park, it's is one of the best known sights in this mountainous land which was once part of Yugoslavia. In this aerial video, contributor Kolman Aerial flies his drone over the great falls during the peak autumn season, creating a stunning aerial perspective!
Slovenia's Wine Country
This video shows amazing aerial footage of the Kog village and surrounding area in northeastern Slovenia, situated near the country's border with Croatia. With moderate temperatures and plentiful nearby clean water sources, Kog is known as winery district, with vineyards spread along two ridges. Contributor Zurandenis made this unforgettable drone video of the Roka Winery, which is situated in the middle of this spectacular Balkan region.
Vintgar Gorge: Canyon of Slovenia
Even though the Age of Steam has passed, there remains a profound fascination with the idea that giant trains could be propelled with steam generated by burning coal. Near Lake Bled, Slovenia, an old bridge carries steam trains across the Vintgar Gorge. It's just a few km/mi from Lake Bled, probably the most well known spot in the country. Contributor Kohlman Aerials made this short but impressive drone video of this scene, which appears to be something out of the 19th century.
Stand-Up Paddleboarding in Slovenia
Contributor Bananaway used a drone to film what has to be one of the best spots for stand-up-paddleboarding in southeastern Europe. Lake Cerknica is in southwestern Slovenia. The size of the lake varies dramatically over the course of the year; at times it is the country's largest lake, while at other times it mostly drains and becomes more of a swampy wetland. During the right season, its calm waters and extensive marshy areas make for some epic paddleboarding!
Begunjscica is a mountain in the Karawank Mountain range, an extension of the Alps mountains which straddles the border of Austria and Slovenia to the south. Contributor Kohlman Aerial used a drone to capture the stunning beauty of this alpine redoubt in winter. The mountain's highest peak, aptly named Big Peak, is a bit over 2k meters (a bit over 6.5k ft.) above sea level. It's a fairly easy climb that can be tackled in a partial day and without technical climbing equipment.
Slovenia Road Trip with a DJI Phantom 4
Contributor Enviesdailleurs.eu used a drone to create memories of an amazing trip across Europe. This episode covers the Slovenia portion of the trip. Using a DJI Phantom 4 drone, he takes us around Soca Valley, Jasna Lake, Vrsic Pass, Piran, and the famous Bled Lake. If the Soca Valley footage at the beginning of the video looks familiar, you may have seen it in the movies: it was a primary shooting location for the 2007 blockbuster Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian.
Begunjscica: Slovenia's Ridge Mountain
Contributor Kolman Aerial created this marvelous drone video of a spot in the mountains of Slovenia. Begunjščica is a ridge-type mountain in a range called the Karawanks, which run for about 120 km (75 mi.) along the country's northern border with Austria. Its highest peak is a bit under 2.1k meters (a little under 6.8k ft.). The range is part of the Southern Limestone Alps group, which runs roughly east-west across northern Italy, southern Austria, and northern Slovenia.
Upper Carniola: Bohinj Valley
Bohinj valley is a basin in the Upper Carniolan region of Slovenia, lying in the northwestern part of the former Yugoslav confederation nation. The geographically isolated valley (with an ethnically distinctive population) is crossed by the Sava Bohinjka river and is also the site of Lake Bohinj, a glacial lake. Kohlman aerial filmed this stunning site to gain a bird's eye perspective of the lake and the Julian Alps peaks of Italy and Austria which lie just beyond it.

These spectacular peaks resemble the Dolomite Mountains in Italy, which are also part of the Southern Limestones.
Aerial Tour of Northwestern Slovenia
Contributor mt_productions used a DJI Mavic Air drone to create this beautiful mini-tour of northwestern Slovenia. This is generally considered the most beautiful part of the country, the northernmost of the former confederates of Yugoslavia.

Locations featured include Lake Bled, Triglav National Park, Kranjska Gora, Lake Jasna, and Lake Bohinj.
Autumn in Jamnik, Slovenia
Jamnik is a town in the mountains of northwestern Slovenia. It's a forested area which lies on a plateau that marks the eastern extent of the Julian Alps, the great range which covers northwestern Slovenia, the far northeastern corner of Italy, and parts of Austria. It's part of the Upper Carniola Region, one of the seven which make up the country. In this video, you will get a bird's eye view of this stunning alpine setting, compliments of contributor Kolman Aerial.
Ljubljana: Castle in Slovenia's Capital
Here's a bird's eye view of the most prominent landmark in the Slovenian capital city of Ljubljana. Ljubljana Castle sits atop a hill in the city, which lies in the middle of the country. It dates to the 11th century, and was originally a fortress. In the 16th and 17th centuries it was largely rebuilt as a classic castle - ie, a residence. It overlooks the downtown of the city and is the largest tourist destination in the capital. The video was created by Skydronauts using a DJI Mavic Pro drone.
