Last year Slovenia witnessed 20 years of independence making it one of the youngest countries on earth. Prior to its independence in 1991, Slovenia was the northern most region of the erstwhile Yugoslavia. Its natural beauty is enhanced by castles, the Alps, healthy lifestyle and warm people. Almost the entire country is laden with a green cover and almost every bend looks like a postcard picture.
Slovenia enjoys the company of Austria, Hungary, Croatia and Italy. Euro is the official currency here just like everywhere else in Europe. English is widely spoken here so it’s not difficult to ask for directions or to shop. It’s not uncommon to find musicians playing traditional songs on Slovenian instruments in the market place. Stain glass is the speciality here and undoubtedly the best thing to buy to keep Slovenian memories lingering.
