Slovenia is located between the Mediterranean Coast and the Alpine chain and has borders with Italy, Austria, Coatia and Hungary. Its capital, located centrally is Ljubljana and has a population of about one quarter of a million. The country is mainly mountainous and has a relatively small and dispersed population. As well as Ljubljana, Slovenia is best known for the beautiful Julian Alps and the picture postcard Lake Bled.

Slovenia has great biological diversity thanks to its forests which cover over half of the territory, its dense river network, and significant karst underground watercourses, as well as a mountainous terrain, largely unspoilt by modern development.
