Slovenia was once part of Yogoslavia, but managed to avoid much of the trouble that ensued at the end of the Yugoslavic Republic, so Slovenia has transformed quickly into a modern democratic state which is safe to travel to. Slovenia is now a member of the European Union and a part of the Schengen Agreement meaning once you’re in the EU, visiting here is as easy as can be without the hassle of obtaining travel visas. This is great, as Slovenia lies at a natural bottleneck between the Adriatic Balkan states and Central Europe so you’ll likely want to visit and explore its relative diverse environments (such as the snow-capped peaks of the Eastern Alps, the world-renowned Lake Bled, to the sun-drenched shores of the Adriatic), all a short drive from its capital Ljubljana, itself a architecturally grand and cultured center.
Visitors will leave this diverse little nation feeling Slovenia is, in a way, a little Europe all of its own!
