Slovenia lies between Italy, Austria, Hungary and Croatia.

Until World War I Slovenia belonged to the Donaumonarchie (Austro-Hungarian Empire), many places have second names in German.

Slovenia was the northernmost state of the former Yugoslavia. It declared independence in 1991 and is now recognized by most other countries as an independent republic. It is capital is Ljubljana.

The Slovene Karst is the world's most famous cave area!
