Neatly nestled between the Alps and the Mediterranean Sea, Slovenia is blessed with spectacular mountains, thick forests and an Adriatic coastline. Not yet a tourist hotspot, Slovenia is a unique hideaway that represents the best of what Europe has to offer.

The Republic of Slovenia lies at the heart of Europe, where the Alps and the Mediterranean meet the Pannonian plains and the mysterious Karst. It is bordered by Austria, Hungary, Croatia and Italy. Situated at this cultural crossroads, Slovenia has always been a place of high artistic achievements. Indeed, arts and culture have had a special position in the history of the Slovenian nation, from which a rich cultural life and far-reaching institutions, organizations and cultural societies have emerged, comparable to the most developed European countries.

Slovenia has a Mediterranean climate in the coastal areas and a continental climate (with mild to hot summers and cold winters) in the plateaus and valleys to the east. Its capital city of Ljubljana has a climate influenced by its situation in a large basin - summers are warmed by the balmy breezes from the Mediterranean while winters bring heavy, foggy air that hangs over the city and produces cold, moist conditions.
