Slovenia

Description of Slovenia

The official language of the country is Slovenian. In areas, bordering with Hungary and Italy, the Hungarian and Italian languages have official status. Most of Slovenians know at least one other foreign language, usually English, Italian or German.

Geography. Slovenia shares its borders with Italy in the west, with Austria in the north, with Hungary in the north-east and with Croatia in the east and south; in the south-west it has an access to the Adriatic Sea. In the north-west and north of the country there are ranges of the Eastern Alps. The highest point is the top of the Mount Triglav (2864 m). Highlands gradually pass into the low mountains and hills covered with coniferous and deciduous forests, and then into the fertile river valleys with a remarkable beauty of karstic caves (the Postojna, the Škocjan), lakes, and numerous waterfalls. Slovenia occupies an area of 20,273 square kilometers. The largest rivers of the country are Sava and Drava - right tributaries of the Danube.

Perhaps, thanks to various neighbors such as punctual Austrians and temperamental Italians, mysterious Hungarians and proud Croatians, Slovenian character is diverse and multicolored: is known for an Italian expressivity and Austrian pedantry and discipline. Slovenians are very self-disciplined, accurate, and organized. But at the same time they are very open and sincere, smiling and welcoming – benevolence is in their air. The country has many provincial dialects, and at a distance of several tens of kilometers people express themselves quite differently. Although, among themselves they speak "correct" Slovenian, with foreigners only in German, Italian or English. Russian tourists also should not worry - the Slovenian language has a lot in common with the Russian, and if aurally is not so clear, then, after having read the label, you can guess what it is about. It is true that Slovenians write, using the Latin alphabet. Slovenians are the majority of the population, but there is no problem of ethnic discord, that’s why Slovenia managed to emerge from the former Yugoslavia without serious consequences.
