Slovenia is the real feeling

Slovenia has it all – landscape, cultural heritage, countless opportunities for sports, many cultural events and excellent cuisine and wine. Small and sweet, friendly and welcoming, green, delicious and joyful – Slovenia is a country of feelings.

The Slovenian identity was shaped by the Slovenian nation over centuries, and in 1991 this culminated in the creation of the independent state. Remaining unchanged amidst ever-changing times, the Slovenian identity reveals the persevering and adaptable character of our nation. The building blocks of present-day Slovenia are founded on the national identity, reflecting the vision of the state and giving a symbolic promise.

To get to know Slovenia, you have to live it, to feel it through words, sounds, colours, touches, actions and experience. The traits of the Slovenian identity will continue to provide the foundation for the future development of Slovenia.
