WELCOME TO IAESTE SLOVENIA
Slovenia is still a quite unknown green pearl that lies in the heart of Europe where the Alps meet the Mediterranean and the Pannonian Plain meets the Karst.
It is a small country (20,273 km2) with only 2 million of hospitable people. We have been a part of the European Union since 2004. Ljubljana is the capital of country and it is situated right in the centre of the country.

AFTER THE ARRIVAL TO SLOVENIA
FREE TIME, FUN TIME!
We know that internship is important but beside work there is a lot of fun things going on in Slovenia.
During the week we meet at least once for a drink somewhere in Ljubljana. Every week a different bar, why not.
We organize a lot of different activities, especially during the weekends. Slovenia is known for its amazing nature so we often go hiking to the mountains, walking through the forest, swimming in beautiful lakes and sea. We do typical trips to the most touristic places like Bled, Postojna cave, Piran and so on.
Beside nature we also explore Slovenia's culture, food and drinks.
During the summer you are never bored because you can find a lot of festivals not only in Ljubljana and Maribor but also in all bigger cities around Slovenia. If you like music, no problem, thousands of music festivals featuring all kinds of music happen around Slovenia. Do you like to taste local cuisine? Guess what, you will find wine, beer or food festivals everywhere.
Slovenia is a very small country so you can see it all. In the morning you can climb mountains in the north in the afternoon you can drink wine in the south and in the evening you can watch sunset at the seaside in the west. It is that easy, especially when you do it with amazing people from all over the world.
