Slovenia is a country with an excellent geographic position at the crossroads of routes leading from the cold north to the warm Mediterranean south. On no more than 20,000 square kilometres, a fascinating variety of landscapes can be found, ranging from the Mediterranean seaside and stone Karst to the Alps and the Pannonian lowlands. Equally diverse and attractive is the cultural heritage of Slovenia and its people.
