About Slovenia – The Green Heart of Europe
Before you travel here, let us tell you a little bit about Slovenia: It is a relatively -young country which gained its independence in 1991. Before that, it was the most developed country of the Former Republic of Yugoslavia. It is a small but well-connected country with a favourable geographical position. It lies in the heart of Europe and borders with Italy, Austria, Hungary and Croatia. In spite of its pocket size, it is a land of variety and boasts four different geographical areas:
- The Alps with beautiful mountains, green valleys and crystal clear waters;
- The Mediterranean with exquisite wine, delicious cuisine and picturesque coastal places by the Adriatic Sea;
- The Pannonian plain with thermal spas and spring water with an extremely high magnesium content to boost health;
- The Dinar mountain range with mysterious underground caves and deep forests bursting with life.
This is the place where you can take your morning walk and a cup of tea by an alpine lake and finish your day by enjoying your dinner and watching the sunset on a terrace by the Adriatic Sea. The weather is best May-September when days are warm and nights are cool with daytime temperatures reaching 20-30°C. Autumn and winter are usually a little chilly and wet, but still allowing a pleasant walk outside.
