Welcome to Slovenia
Get the guide in your language
Good things come in small packages, and Slovenia undoubtedly fits that expression. Located next to Italy and Austria, you can hike in the Alps one day and then bask in the sun on the Adriatic Coast the next, or ski in the morning and enjoy a coffee in a historic city in the afternoon. With a landscape covered by 60 percent of forest, soaring alpine mountains, fascinating architecture and lush green hills where rows of vineyards glisten in the abundant sunshine, Slovenia makes a perfect holiday destination or even just a short break. And you’ll always be assured of a friendly welcome by warm and hospitable Slovenes – many of whom speak English.
