A few years ago, the dissolution of the Eastern bloc has appeared in our field of vision countries still unknown to us and who today still resonate as potentially dangerous countries. That’s why we are more inclined to go on holiday to Italy, Spain, Portugal, yet once past our apprehensions these countries of ancient Eastern Europe offers extraordinary opportunities Error Slovenia is part of the European Union since May 1, 2004 but it is true that it belonged to the former Yugoslavia! we have a lot of misconceptions about the inhabitants of Eastern Europe the official languages in Slovenia are Slovene, Hungarian and Italian, but almost all speak English so there is a lot of way to understand each other! Finance side there is nothing to fear Slovenia being part of the European Union the currency of Slovenia is today € uro so there will be no difficulty for you to make your purchases! Gastronomy is a bit more complicated the Slovenian national dish is a buckwheat porridge with croutons and olive oil I will not mention the name of this dish I do not speak enough Slovenian … not at all! You will understand we will not be on a light meal we will rather be on cold cuts and dishes rather Also, in Slovenia, you often start the day with soup. But rest assured it’s the pizzas there that have the favor of tourists, they are huge and cost on average 4 to 5 € at this price it’s not worth going to make sandwiches there better take the time to sit on the terrace and enjoy quietly of the idleness ambient, but be careful, we do not in Italy When you leave Italy by Trieste to go to Croatia it’s through Slovenia that you pass, you have about forty kilometers on the Adriatic coast of which Koper, Izola and Piran are the main cities In winter the snow is present all the more so that one climbs quickly in Mountain but in summer it is a rather pleasant and very mild climate The towns and villages are really pretty with typical Balkan architecture do not hesitate to go to discover cities and small villages, do not forget that in cities Saturday all shops close from 13 hours because the Slovenes go to the mountains to join their families and everything is desert until Monday Slovenes are people of extraordinary kindness, you will never find aggression in Slovenia people are rather benevolent and in addition Slovenians love children! No, Slovenes do not just drink beer, do you know it’s an extraordinary wine country? Besides, we had the chance to visit the MOVIA estate in Dobrovo where we were greeted by the sparkling Tanja they are sumptuous wines very different from what we are used to to consume in France with a delicacy and an amplitude to make pale all the Sommeliers No, Slovenia is not as far away as one might think it’s no further than going to Portugal or going to the south of Spain Slovenia is just after Italy, if you intend to visit Venice, go for a walk around Lake Garda who has a new motorhome area and there you are 350 km from the Slovenian border and a new country and new adventures is offered to you! In conclusion, forget all your prejudices about the former Eastern Bloc countries and go take a breath of fresh air in Slovenia. Slovenia is full of lakes, forests, mountains, so do not waste your time in the cities and will settle quietly on the banks of Lake Bohinj Ukanc it’s a minimalist and natural campsite, there you can enjoy full of hiking, mountain, you can go paddle rides, you can also relax in peace. In short you can do a lot of outdoor activities, believe me Slovenia is really a peaceful country. on the other hand, wild camping is forbidden, you will have to find a campsite to spend your nights and the price of campsites is similar to that of other European neighbors. You will understand Slovenia is a country we loved to go camping it is a country in which we will return very probably soon.
