General Information


About Slovenia

Slovenia is the first country in the world to be declared a green destination based on the Green Destinations Criteria. Situated in the heart of Europe, Slovenia is a boutique country between the Alps, Mediterranean Sea, mysterious Karst with more than 11,000 karst caves and Pannonian Plain, rich in healthy water springs. We are also proud that our capital Ljubljana was awarded the European Green Capital 2016 title (www.slovenia.info) 

Covid-19

As of February 19, 2022, all COVID-19 entry requirements (recovered, vaccinated, tested) have been lifted for all travelers to Slovenia.
The RVT (recovered/vaccinated/tested) condition no longer has to be met at the border and travellers will no longer be ordered to quarantine at home. Also other restrictions have been lifted. You do not need to wear a face mask anywhere in the country, except in some medical institutions.
Curent informations about entering Slovenia can be found on: https://www.policija.si/enterslovenia/en
 

Currency & Communication

The Slovenian currency is the Euro. In terms of language, in addition to Slovenian, most people in Slovenia speak English.

Travel

You can travel to Slovenia by air to the central Jože Pučnik International Airport or to any of the airports in the neighbouring countries. It takes 2 hours to fly from London to Ljubljana and only 1 hour from Munich or Vienna.

Air Connections

In addition to the daily flights to many European cities (Munich, Frankfurt, Brussel, Moscow, Vienna, Zurich) and 3-5 flights per week connecting Amsterdam, London and Paris, there are two low-cost flight providers flying from the main Slovenian international airport Jože Pučnik Ljubljana. They are EasyJet and Wizz Air, flying to London and Brussels. Adria Airways is the only Slovenian air carrier and it operates most of the flights to Ljubljana; however, you can also fly other air carriers, such as Turkish Airlines, AirSerbia, AirFrance, LOT, Finnair and Montenegro Airlines. You can also fly to one of the foreign airports in the near vicinity, and access Slovenia from there by bus, train or rental car. The service of transfers from the nearby airports to Slovenia is also offered by the low-cost carriers, such as GoOpti (www.goopti.com) and various other carriers. Within Slovenia, it is not reasonable to travel by air, since the distances are too short. In Slovenia, you can swim in the sea in the morning and climb mountains in the afternoon. However, you are encouraged to make use of the possibility of panoramic flights.

Arrivals from Airport

From Jože Pučnik Airport (Ljubljana Airport), you can travel to Ljubljana by Bus, from where you have bus and train connections to all major cities within Slovenia, including Portorož. At the airport you have the option for Shuttle transfer, with different carriers at your disposal (www.lju-airport.si), taxis available to you immediately in front of the airport building (Tel.: ++386(0) 590 60 777, Mobile: ++386(0) 31 216 111, website: airport taxi.si and Rent-a-car

​Climate

Climatic conditions in Slovenia vary. There is a Continental climate in the northeast, harsh Alpine climate in the high mountain regions, and a sub-Mediterranean climate in the coastal region. Yet there is a strong interaction between these three climatic systems across most of the country. It is quite common for strong southwest winds to bring clouds and rain to the west of Slovenia, while sunny and relatively warm weather prevails in the eastern part. Alternatively, when winter low clouds and cold weather persists inland, in the Primorska region it is sunny, with a mild temperature.

The greatest differences between maximal and minimal rates occur in the northeast of Slovenia, where the influence of the continental climate is the strongest. The sea, which also has a certain influence on air temperature, acts like a large thermal storehouse and contributes to the narrower range of temperatures in the coastal region. The effect of the sea on temperature is also perceptible in the valley of the River Soča up to the Trenta Valley. Temperature trends clearly show there have been some changes during the last two decades: a trend of higher temperatures can be seen throughout the country.

Annual precipitation changes with years: the Julian Alps and the Dinaric-Alpine barrier receive the greatest amount; the second maximum is in the Kamnik-Savinja Alps. The annual amount of precipitation declines with distance from the sea towards the north-eastern part of the country, and in Prekmurje it falls to 800mm. Such a distribution is the consequence of the territory relief, but also of the fact that most of the precipitation is brought by southwest winds.

Visa requirements

In addition to a valid travel document, third-country nationals (all countries except Switzerland and EEA Member States, which includes EU Member States, Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein) must hold a visa in order to enter the Republic of Slovenia. A visa is a permit issued by a relevant diplomatic mission or consular post of the Republic of Slovenia to a third-country national. If the circumstances under which a visa was issued have changed, border authorities may refuse entry and cancel the visa. On Ministry of Foreign Affairs web pages (www.mzz.gov.si) you will find online visa applications, a detailed description of the circumstances under which a visa is required, and a description of different visa types. For additional information on visas, please contact konzularne-zadeve.mzz@gov.si. For information on a country’s visa regime, we advise that you directly contact its representation.
