Where the Alps meet the Mediterranean and the Pannonian Plain meets the Karst, there is Slovenia. Slovenia is a small green country, located in Central and Southeastern Europe and extends in the area of 20,273 km2 and has a population of almost 2,1 million. More than half of the total area is covered by forest. The capital and largest city is Ljubljana, 284,355 inhabitants. The highest peak is Triglav with 2864 meter above sea level.
Slovenia, with its diverse landscapes, is an attraction in itself. Its commitment to green and sustainable development resulted in the title of the first green tourist destination in the world. But that’s not all, it is gradually drawing the attention of the leading global tourism media, which place its most remarkable features on their lists of top destinations. One of the first things you notice on arriving in Slovenia is the extraordinary variety and diversity of landscapes. Driving across Slovenia creates the impression that in a very short space of time you have driven across several countries. Mighty Alpine peaks with sheer faces, deep karst caves and potholes, softly rounded hills and vast plains: Slovenia has all of these. There are also beautiful lakes and bubbling brooks, the silence of forests and the crashing waves of the sea.
Slovenian cuisine is a mixture of Central European cuisine (especially Austrian and Hungarian), Mediterranean cuisine and Balkan cuisine.
