Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, is a central European city lying between the Alps and the Adriatic Sea, in a basin where the Ljubljanica river flows into the Sava. It has all the facilities of a modern capital, and yet it has preserved its small-town friendliness and relaxed atmosphere. Its surrounding areas, packed with natural beauty and cultural sights bearing witness to the city’s dynamic history, are renowned for their walking, hiking and cycle trails and a wide variety of culinary delights.

The Republic of Slovenia lies at the heart of Europe, where the Alps face the Pannonian plains and the Mediterranean meets the Karst. To the north it borders on Austria; Hungary is to the east; Croatia to the south and Italy to the west. For its size, Slovenia is extremely diverse in terms of its landscapes but also languages and cultures. It has been a meeting area of Slavic, Germanic, Romance and Uralic linguistic and cultural regions, which makes this small country the most complex meeting point of languages in Europe and add flavor to it on every corner.
