Slovenia is the only country in Europe connecting four completely different geographical worlds: the Alps, the Mediterranean, the Pannonian Plain and the Karst. One moment you are admiring the snowy mountains, than you look away and see the sea. The world of beautiful contrasts is the best hallmark of Slovenia.
