Prosperous and welcoming
Slovenia is located in south eastern Europe, bordering the eastern Alps and Adriatic Sea, between Austria, Italy, Hungary and Croatia. The northernmost republic of what was once Yugoslavia, Slovenia is the most prosperous and welcoming of all Europe's ex communist countries and it has avoided the political problems that have affected the republics to the south. The Slovenes have managed to retain a strong ethnic identity through the Slovene language, a close relation of Czech, Serbo-croat and Slovak.
Slovenia offers variety & stunning beauty
The landscape of Slovenia offers variety and stunning beauty. Along the border with Austria, the Julian Alps provide spectacular mountain scenery. To the south, the scenery offers caves like those at Postojna. The capital of Slovenia, Ljubljana, is of a manageable size with superb Baroque and Habsburg architecture.
Mild climate, good quality hotels
The short stretch of Slovenian Adriatic coast, along the northern edge of the Istrian peninsula, has towns that were among the most attractive resorts of the former Yugoslavia including the holiday destination of Portoroz. This beautiful resort offers a mild climate, good quality hotels and numerous attractions including health and leisure activities, two casinos, a marina and a sandy beach. The parks and their rose beds ensure that the town lives up to its name of the "Port of Roses".

Although the region is drier than the rest of the country, the coast is still prone to heavy summer thunderstorms. Spring and autumn seasons along the coast tend to be changeable, receiving between 3 and 5 hours of sunshine per day, and seeing temperatures ranging from 10C-15C. Inland, the climate is temperate, with warm summers, and even more rainfall.
