Slovenia Off The Beaten Path: 165 reviews and 231 photos


The renowned Avsenik family polka band comes from Begunje near Bled. Now retired from touring, they own a restaurant where they still occasionally play for their guests. Slavko Avsnik set the foundations of popular music well known in all alpine countries. He received many international awards including 31 gold, one platinum, and one diamond record-all on display in the Avsenik Gallery at Begunje.
