One of the most financially prosperous former communist countries, Slovenia joined in the EU in 2004. In a nod to its neighboring countries, Hungarian and Italian are also official languages and spoken in those respective areas. Many younger people speak English, or at least another language.
Adria Airways is the national airline, although other low-cost budget European airlines like WizzAir and easyJet fly to and from the area.
Top attractions in Slovenia include its capital, Ljubljana, the Postojna Caves and the romantic setting of Bled on its namesake lake. For more information on Slovenia, check out check out BootsnAll’s Slovenia Travel Guide.
