SLOVENIA IN BRIEF
In Slovenia, the sun shines approximately 2,000 hours per year. And yes, there is plenty of snow in winter. 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. The highest mountain is called Triglav – the name means ‘three-heads’ – and it is 2,864m high. The mountain is a true national symbol and is featured on the national coat of arms and the flag. Last but not least, Slovenia has 15 natural spas at which you can take care of your health with the help of their thermal mineral waters.
