Slovenia is not Slovakia, so don't think it is. Slovenia is better, and much more intellectual. It's perfectly safe and it has much less crime than America. Life is Slovenia is as modern as in America, so don't think that people in Slovenia live in middle ages !
Slovenia is a former member of the former Yugoslavia, but it is the "good one." It mostly escaped all "ethnic-cleansing" phase that was all the rage in the Balkans in the mid-1990's. Slovenia had more money than the other Yugoslav splinters, and we all know that rich people are better than poor people, and not as prone to violence. So Slovenia didn't have to get down in the gutter with those dirty Serbs and filthy Bosnian Muslims and Kra-zee Kosovans. The Croats they could mostly hang with, though, because Croatia was pretty rich, too - for a Slavic place. Also, the Pope was very popular in both Slovenia and Croatia.
Slovenia is true and is a very nice country with beautiful mountains, lakes and sea.
