Slovenia is small independent country of 1.9 million inhabitants, located in Central-Southern Europe, to the east of Italy and south of Austria. It covers an area of 20,256 square kilometres.
The topography ranges dramatically from mountainous Alps on the North right across to the Adriatic sea on the South. Its unique location makes it one of the most diverse countries on the world. Slovenia`s biggest strength lies in its well preserved natural environment, with its rich flora and fauna. One third of our country is protected under the European environmental protection legislation, Nature 2000.
The easiest way to get to Slovenia is probably by air. Ljubljana airport is located in central Slovenia with good connections to almost all European capitals. Our national carrier Adria Airways (www.adria.si
) offers good connections to European capitals at reasonable prices. Nowadays the budget airline Easyjet also flies to Ljubljana from London and Berlin. If these schdules do not suit you, we can meet you at Trieste airport (Italy), Venice (Italy) or Klagenfurt (Austria).
We can also meet you at a railway terminus if you are travelling by train. Good options are Ljubljana (Slovenia), Gorizia (Italy) or Udine (Italy).
At every airport and train terminus, you will find all the usual car rental firms (Hertz, Europcar, Avis, Sixt). It is usually less expensive and easier to use our transportation, since we only charge you for milage, at the Slovenian officially approved rate.
