About Slovenia

A bridge between the East and West

Slovenia was the most developed republic of former Yugoslavia and today it is often hailed as a Balkan success story. Emerging relatively unscathed from the Balkan wars of the 1990s, it quickly gained independence, prospered, and then joined the EU and NATO by 2004. Today Slovenia enjoys general economic and political stability.

It lies at the heart of Europe where the Alps and the Mediterranean meet the Pannonia plains and the mysterious Karst. Its geographic location along Europe’s virtual centreline sees the country linking east and west and that is what makes it so strategically well-positioned. In Slovenia, the sun shines approximately 2,000 hours per year. 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.
