FRIENDLY LITTLE COUNTRY WITH LOTS TO OFFER.
Slovenia is a land of natural beauty and diversity. Situated in the heart of Europe, between the Alps and the Mediterranean sea, Slovenia features almost thousands of caves and some of the most beautiful glacial lakes and waterfalls. With one of the most glorious wineyards you have ever seen, Slovenia is also one of the prettiest, most fascinating wine countries and home to the oldest continuously producing vine in Europe, which is over four hundred years old.
EVERY GRAPE HAS IT’S STORY.
The oldest vine in the world grows in Maribor city, Slovenia. The confirmed age of this vine is 450 years old. It won a place in the Guinness Book of Records as the oldest noble vine still bearing grapes. It is called Žametovka or Modra Klančina.
DRINKING GOOD WINE WITH GOOD FOOD IN GOOD COMPANY IS ONE OF LIFE’S MOST CIVILIZED PLEASURES.
Slovenia’s history is seasoned with a romantic, nostalgic and uncritical attitude to our cultural heritage. And all of that reflects in the Slovenian cousine, which is influenced by the diversity of Slovenian landscape and neighbouring cultures. Slovene foods are often simple and spiced with love and attention. Many dishes are made with cream and rye in combination with various different types of meat. And who doesn’t know the famous dessert »potica« which even the Pope has tasted?
CULTURAL GEM, HIDDEN UNDER THE ALPS.
Slovenia is small and in global view really young country, but that is not stoping us in being cultural one of the richest countries in Eurpe. Among the modes of expression of the culture of Slovenia are music, literature, film and theatre. Slovenia is also a home of the great 19th-century poet and cultural iconic France Prešeren and one of the greatest cultural harritages in our opinion – folklore dance.
