About Slovenia

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.
