About Ljubljana and Slovenia

The City of Ljubljana

Situated between the Alps and the Adriatic Sea, the city of Ljubljana is classified as a mid-sized European city, but it has preserved its small-town friendliness and relaxed atmosphere while providing all the facilities of a modern capital. The city’s character is marked by two widely differing and yet complementary features: Ljubljana is famed for its historical heritage and tradition while being a relatively young city with a modern lifestyle. It is the political and cultural heart of the Slovenian nation, safe and particularly charming in summer.

Distances between places in Slovenia are short, which makes Ljubljana a perfect base for exploring the Slovenia's diverse beauty.

About Slovenia

Slovenia lies in the heart of Europe, where the Alps meet the Mediterranean and the Pannonia Plain meets the 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. 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.

Having participated in the DSS three consecutive years I am truly able to say: the program organization is excellent, the lectures are very well designed and challenging, and the people, the food and the city are just amazing!

Participating in the Ljubljana Doctoral Summer School has been an enriching experience for my academic and personal development. Besides the beautiful city the intensive course work and also the network opportunities with like-minded PhD students from different countries have been very valuable.

I really enjoyed the Ljubljana Doctoral Summer School. Being enrolled in an excellent class on structural equation modelling with PhD from all over Europe did not only enhance my professional skills but also gave me the opportunity for interesting discussions about different cultures and PhD life in general.
