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).

1. Currency & Communication

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

2. 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.
