Slovenia Mini Guide

Slovenia has a coastline on the Adriatic Sea while sharing land borders with Italy to the northwest, Austria to the north, Croatia to the south and Hungary to the northeast. This advantageous position means that Slovenia is within reach of the Alps and also some fine beaches. Skiers or sun worshippers will be equally pleased to take their holidays here. One of the most popular tourist hotspots in Slovenia is the Julian Alps where all sorts of energetic activities can be enjoyed such as mountain biking and kayaking. This is also where the best skiing is to be found.

Slovenia is easy to get into because it is part of the Schengen agreement and so there are no border controls should you arrive by car or plane from another Schengen country. The main airport is in Slovenia’s capital Ljubljana and there are flights operating with a number of carriers. These include routes with the national carrier Adria Airways or cheap flights from London Stansted with Easyjet.

Given Slovenia’s position in the midst of so many other European countries it is easy enough to fly to an airport nearby and drive across. You can do so from Trieste in Italy, Pula in Croatia (Ryanair flies here) or Klagenfurt in Austria. Having a car is vital in this part of the world and Rhino hire car operates out of all these international airports and we may be able to allow you to use different pick up and drop off points for your vehicle if it is more convenient. It is also possible to drive into Slovenia from such major European cities as Venice in Italy and Vienna in Austria and Slovenia has excellent road links with these countries. Rhino can also sort out the normal road tax that you are required to pay on entry. Check with our representatives.

Generally Slovenia is not an expensive country to visit and eating out tends to be good value. Most of the food is quite basic though Italian cuisine is often served and seafood is good when you are at the Adriatic coast. The wine here is better than you would expect it to be. Try something from the Goriška brda region or the Štajerska region. The official language of the country is Slovene and you may wish to take a phrase book with you. When speaking English speak slowly and clearly if you want to be understood.
