Why Slovenia?

For those looking to move abroad, Slovenia offers a unique combination of stunning landscapes, vibrant culture, and welcoming locals. With geography ranging from bustling cities to rural farmlands, Slovenia has something for everyone. Plus, the cost of living is relatively low compared to its western European neighbors like Italy and Austria. Language can be a barrier as Slovenian is the official language, although many do speak English. In terms of education, there are excellent universities catering to those who want to study in English or even learn Slovenian while studying. Public transportation is not as widely available as in other countries, so you may need to invest in a car for convenience. Additionally, within this beautiful country it’s easy to find exciting outdoor adventures such as hiking, white water rafting, and mountain biking. With this in mind, it’s clear that anyone considering moving to Slovenia will get a great opportunity for an adventurous experience filled with plenty of cultural surprises.
