About Slovenia

A bridge between the East and West

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.
