The Country

The Republic of Slovenia lies at the heart of Europe where the Alps face the Pannonia plains and the Mediterranean meets the mysterious Karst. As a beautiful and picturesque country, Slovenia makes a great tourist destination. Mountains, lakes, waterfalls, forests, caves, hills, plains, rivers and the sea – you name it, you can find it all within the country’s modest 20,273 km2, as well as many natural and landscape parks. You can ski in the morning and surrender
yourself to the luxury of the Adriatic Sea in the afternoon. Last but not least, Slovenia has 15
natural spas at which you can take care of your health with the help of its thermal mineral waters. On 25 June 1991 Slovenia declared its independence and began its successful story of transition from socialism to a market economy. It boasts stable GDP growth and is viewed as a safe country, being ranked among those countries with the lowest degree of risk. Slovenia joined the European Union on 1 May 2004 and introduced the euro on 1 January 2007. Slovenia was holding the EU Council Presidency from January to June 2008.

The City

The capital of Slovenia, Ljubljana, is a relatively large central European city situated between the Alps and the Adriatic Sea with approximately 300,000 inhabitants. It is the political and cultural heart of the Slovenian nation and most charming in summer. The visitor’s first impression of Ljubljana is that it is an exceptionally young city as over 50,000 students provide very young vibrations. Many scientists come to Ljubljana because of its university and
institutes with solid international reputations. It is a city of culture and a rich historical legacy which offers all the friendliness of a small town and at the same time everything that a capital city should offer.

Travel Opportunities

Older Slovenian cities have historic influences by baroque (Austrian) and Roman (Italian) architectures. Part of both, the countryside and city architecture in the northwest, shares many
commonalities with neighboring Austria, including countless baroque shrines and steeples. The Ljubljana capital was founded in Roman times; today its university has over 50,000 students.
