Slovenia may be tiny in size, but has so much to do and see that size is not of importance.

Sometimes referred to as the "Green Piece of Europe", agro-tourism is very popular. The diverse topography, ranging from the coastal area to the Alpine peaks, is attainable in just a couple hours drive through the Pammonian lowlands or the Dolenjska hills.

Gothic churches, baroque palaces, castles, caves, thermal springs and a plethora of outdoor activities are all awaiting the Slovenian vistor.

Since its independence in 1991, it has become one of the top destinations for travelers from around the world.
