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!

The written Slovenian language uses a Roman alphabet with some special characters. Our main goal with names is, to display them in the most original form that is possible. So names and link descriptions may contain such special characters.

Unfortunately some browsers are not able to display special characters. Some browsers understand the special characters of the respective operating system, which unfortunately will produce strange results on all other operating systems. uses the standardized  W3C definitions. This may result in fancy placeholders like black rectangles or character entities. We are sorry for that, but after all its the best we can do.

If you have such problems, think about upgrading your browser. Many new browsers are free, like  Mozilla and  Opera.
