The Republic of Slovenia lies at the heart of Europe, where the Alps face the Pannonian plains and the Mediterranean meets the mysterious Karst.
To the north borders to Austria; Hungary is to the east; Croatia to the south and Italy to the west.
Green is the dominant colour. There are many woods and forests in Slovenia – covering more than half of the country – and numerous preserved and protected plant and animal species. Mountains, lakes, waterfalls, forests, caves, hills, plains, rivers and the sea – you name it, we’ve got it on the 20.273 km2, as well as many natural and landscape parks. As a small picturesque country, Slovenia makes a great tourist destination. You can ski in the morning and surrender yourself to the luxury of the Adriatic Sea in the afternoon.
The highest mountain is called Triglav – the name meaning “three-heads” – and it is 2864m high. The mountain is a true national symbol, featured on the national coat of arms and the flag. The country is also known for its great wines and delicious traditional food.
