A guide to Slovenian culture
As it only became a republic in 1991, Slovenia is a very young country compared to many of its counterparts, yet it still boasts a history of rich cultural traditions that date right back to the 6th century. Modern day Slovenians have been careful to preserve this, partly because they waited so long for independent rule.
Slovenia continues to take its cultural heritage seriously and celebrates its history and traditions as often as possible. Holiday here and you’ll have lots of opportunities to observe traditions such as national costumes, folk dances and songs. To help you plan your Slovenian holiday, we’ve brought together some of the highlights.
