IPTC INFO
CaptionSlovenia Slovenija is a country in Central Europe that lies in the eastern Alps at the northern end of the Adriatic Sea with Austria to the north Italy to the southwest Hungary to the northeast and Croatia to the south. Despite its small size Slovenia has a surprising variety of terrain ranging from the beaches of the Mediterranean to the peaks of the Julian Alps to the rolling hills of the south. Slovenia was already more economically advanced than other nations behind the iron curtain prior to European integration and the powerhouse of Tito's Yugoslavia. Contrary to the popular misconception Slovenia was not a part of the Eastern bloc not after the Yugoslavian notorious split with the Soviet Union in 1948. Added the fact that Slovenia is also home to some of the finest scenery in the "New Europe" the transition from socialism to the European common market economy has gone well and serves as a model for other nations on the same track to follow. __________________________________ Cities: Ljubljana - the picturesque pint-sized capital Bled - impossibly romantic mountain lake complete with castle and island Celje - one of Slovenia's oldest cities Koper/Capodistria - lovely Venetian city largest on Slovenian coastline Maribor - Slovenia's second largest city Nova Gorica - the city literary on the border with Italy Piran/Pirano - gorgeous Venetian port Postojna - Site of the gigantic Postojna caves Ptuj - one of Slovenia's oldest cities _____________________________________ Other destinations: Škocjan Caves — Less commercial than Postojna but no less impressive a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Triglav National Park — Home to national symbol Mt. Triglav and mythical golden chamois Zlatorog. Soča Valley — Soča river is with its emerald colour one of the most beautiful European Alpine rivers.________________________________ Get in: Slovenia is a member of the Schengen Agreement. There are no border controls between countries that have signed and implemented the treaty - the European Union except Bulgaria Croatia Cyprus Ireland Romania and the United Kingdom Iceland Liechtenstein Norway and Switzerland. Likewise a visa granted for any Schengen member is valid in all other countries that have signed and implemented the treaty. By plane: Ljubljana is Slovenia's primary international airport and the hub of national carrier Adria Airways which flies to a number of European cities and offers connections to Southeast Europe. The cheapest ways into the city though are via easyJet's daily flight from London-Stansted.
