  • Country overview minus-thick plus-thick

    Slovenia, officially the Republic of Slovenia, is a country located in central/south-eastern Europe. It is bordered by Italy, Austria, Hungary, Croatia, and the Adriatic Sea. Once part of Yugoslavia, Slovenia is a member nation of the European Union, United Nations, and NATO. The capital and largest city is Ljubljana.

    Slovenia is home to approximately 2 million people, and has one of the lowest population densities in Europe at 101 people per square kilometre. The official and most common language is Slovene, however Hungarian and Italian are also official languages. Most Slovenians are also familiar and comfortable with English.

    Slovenia’s terrain is mostly mountainous and half of the territory is covered by forests. Climates range through sub-Mediterranean to alpine, depending upon the area you're in. Slovenia has significant biological diversity and is one of the most water-rich countries in Europe. The mountains offer traditional snowsports, whereas warmer regions by the seaside boast beautiful old towns and clear waters for swimming. Slovenia is getting more and more tourists every year, but is still not nearly at the levels that countries such as Germany and France experience. This makes it a wonderful country to go for exchange, as people are used to visitors and English-speakers, but you're not navigating your way through crowds during your travels.

    Slovenia is a great destination for those after adventure – you can zipline the steepest descent in the world, bungee jump off the longest train bridge built of stone blocks, go white water rafting and trek through mountains and forests.

    Slovenia has historically been the crossroads of cultures, being part of many different states including the Roman Empire, Byzantine Empire, Carolingian Empire, the Habsburg Monarchy, the Republic of Venice and the Austro-Hungarian Empire. If you are looking for European history, you'll find it here!

    Did you know?

    In a population of just two million people, there are around 90,000 beekeepers. You could say beekeeping is part of the identity of the country. It’s one of the greenest countries in the world, with a remarkable 53.6% of Slovenia designated protected land.
