Welcome

Slovenia is a young country that gained its independence from Yugoslavia in 1991. Yet this area had already been settled in very early times. We like to "brag" that our part of the "Old Continent" is the gate between the Mediterranean and Middle Europe: lying on the south-eastern - sunny side of the Alps, touching the Adriatic Sea and Italy in the west, and bordering the Dinaric Mountains and the Pannonian Basin to the south and east. It is exactly here that the three important European cultures come together: namely Slavic, Latin and German.

The area of today's Slovenia has always been at the crossroads of many different cultures. Thus, it offers us a time machine with diverse historical heritage such as the world's oldest wooden wheel, which takes us back in time to the settlements dating back around 5 000 years! The remains of pile dwelling culture, the Škocjan Caves in the Karst region and Idrija Mercury Mine even put us on the Unesco World Heritage list! Currently, we are celebrating the 2 000th anniversary of the foundation of Roman Ljubljana. Not to mention our language which is part of the Slavic heritage! In addition, you can still recognize the characteristics of Venetian and Hapsburg periods in today's way of life!

The remains of pile dwelling culture, the Škocjan karst caves and mercury mines even put us on the Unesco World Heritage list!

As a country, we have everything that the big ones have: the high Alps, water valleys, the Pannonian plain and hilly landscapes with warm thermal springs, the unique world of Karst, the Mediterranean Sea, a rich natural and cultural heritage, numerous stories and legends – they are all inviting you, the modern traveller, to stop in our part of Europe!

Take a few days and spend them with us. You will surely be fascinated and convinced to stop for even longer the next time you come!

Travelling is the best investment!
