Locate just above Croatia, and next to Italy and Hungary, Slovenia is a small country filled with mountains, rivers, and forests that you can explore. In recent years Slovenia has embraced being one the Greener countries in all of Europe, and it was recognized by the Europan union which awarded their capital Ljubljana with European Green Capital in 2016.

Know before you go to Slovenia

Slovenia has always been a Balkan state that has a more European feel that her neighbors Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Serbia. Slovenia is also the first of those four countries to be inducted into the European Union which drastically increased its economic growth in recent years.

Mostly known to be a small country, Slovenia has been marketing itself as a green European country filled with beautiful mountains such as Mountain Triglav and beautiful lakes such as Bled Lake.

Credit cards and ATMs

In most main cities such as Maribor, Ljubljana and even Bled you will easily find ATM-s that you can withdraw your money, and in most restaurants, you can pay by card, but since Slovenia is an outdoor country and people like to visit mountains, lakes, forests and rivers I would recommend that you carry cash if you wish to pay your guide or give him a tip.
