Slovenia - Your Host Country

. .

A land with an excellent geographic position, in the very heart of Europe, at the crossroads of routes leading from the cold north to the warm Mediterranean south, Slovenia is a miniature Europe, a country where the Alps meet the Adriatic Sea and where the stone Karst stretches to the Pannonian lowlands. A fascinating variety of landscapes is concentrated on only some 20,000 square km.
