Slovenia lies in the heart of Europe, where the Alps meet the Mediterranean and the Pannonian Plain meets the Karst.
The changing landscape is constantly surprising. You can have one eye on the sea, then look in the other direction and be surrounded by high mountains. Heading up into the forests, you can see the green plains below you. From upland meadows your view stretches into river gorges. This proximity of opposites and contrasts is a hallmark of the country.
Althouh Slovenia is a young country (it gained its independence in 1991) it has a rich cultural heritage, and is proudly nurturing it and preserving it. You can learn countless details of all historical forms of creativity at one of Slovenia’s well-kept museums. All the major periods of human history are preserved in Slovenia in the precious form of archaeological findings, with new ones being discovered all the time. In an area where once there were thousands of castles, a good number have been preserved, of which four are major tourist destinations.
Nature has been generous to Slovenia. The varied green landscape is mostly covered in forests, while grape vines are grown on the sunny slopes of hills in many areas. Nature has combined and interwoven great natural riches in this small piece of Europe and granted Slovenia extraordinary variety and diversity that is still well preserved today. Over a third of the country’s territory lies within the Europe-wide network of Natura 2000 protected areas, while other valuable areas have been proclaimed major parks and reserves. Direct contact with nature is possible even on the edges of cities.
