Slovenia (Slovenija) is a country in Central Europe that lies in the eastern Alps at the northeastern end of the Adriatic Sea. Despite its small size, with Austria to the north, Italy to the northwest, Hungary to the northeast and Croatia to the south, Slovenia has a surprising variety of terrain, ranging from the beaches of the Mediterranean to the peaks of the Julian Alps.
For a pint-sized country Slovenes are fiercely proud of their culture. Two names you will run into over and over again are national poet France Preseren (1800-1849), who penned (among other things) the Slovenian national anthem, and the architect Jože Plecnik (1857-1957), credited with Ljubljana's iconic Tromostovje bridges and, seemingly, half the modern buildings in the country. In modern times, industrial band Laibach (see box) has served to put Slovenia on the map.
As Slovenia is a member country of the European Union, citizens from other member states can enter Slovenia with a valid passport or a valid identity card.
The Ljubljana Bus Station (Avtobusna Postaja Ljubljana) provides composite information about international and airport bus services. Phone: 090 93 42 30 (Slovenian only) English Website: http://ap-ljubljana.si/eng/
Slovenia's primary international airport is Ljubljana Brnik  which is around 25 km north of Ljubljana, the capital. The airport is the hub of national carrier Adria Airways, which flies to most major European cities and various Balkan destinations. The cheapest ways in, though, are via easyJet's daily flight from London Stansted or Wizz Air's services to London Luton and Brussels.
Another convenient gateway especially to western Slovenia is via Italy's Trieste airport which is but an hour's drive from Ljubljana via super highway. Klagenfurt, in Austria, is also an option.
Slovenia is well connected to all its neighbors by train. The most popular routes connect from Wien in Austria (in good weather, this journey across the Julian Alps is spectacular), from Venice and Trieste in Italy, from Budapest in Hungary and from Zagreb in Croatia. All lines converge on the capital Ljubljana.
Slovenia has an excellent highway network connected to neighboring countries.
