Health 

In Slovenia, there is no risk of contracting any dangerous disease, which is why there are no special vaccinations for entry into the country. The citizens of European Union Member States can travel to Slovenia with the European Health Insurance Card. This card can also be obtained by the citizens of Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland. The card gives you access to health services in the public health sector, i.e. at the doctors and pharmacies, under the same conditions as the Slovenian citizens. For the citizens of all other countries, it is best that you take out international travel insurance even before travelling to Slovenia. They are also recommended for the citizens of the above-mentioned countries. There are health centers in all Slovenian cities and smaller clinics in towns. Emergency number is 112.

In Slovenia the communication network is good. There is mobile signal in almost every small corner of te country as in the mountains. It is very difficult to lose signal while traveling through Slovenia. Wireless networks are also widely spread out and available in cities, bars, restaurants,... 

Language 

Official language in Slovenia is Slovenian. English, German and Italian is also quite widely spoken, which means that you will always find someone who can help you. Especially in tourist centers you can easily get along with English. 

Climate 

Most visitors see summer as the best time to visit Slovenia, when the weather is at its most reliable, the full range of sights are open, and the country’s numerous festivals are in full swing. However, many of Slovenia’s attractions, including the capital, are just as enjoyable outside the peak summer months, and in particular during spring and autumn, when the countryside colours are at their most resplendent, hotel prices (at least in the resort areas) are slightly lower and the crowds are a little thinner. Slovenia’s climate follows three distinctive patterns: in the northwest, an alpine climate predominates, characterized by very cold winters, often with heavy rainfall and snow, and moderately warm summers, occasionally interspersed with short, violent storms. However, with the wide range of pursuits on offer here – skiing between December and March, and climbing, hiking and adventure sports between April and September – a visit to the mountain regions can be enjoyed at pretty much any time of the year. Aside from Kranjska Gora in the winter, and Lake Bled and Lake Bohinj in the height of summer, few resorts get so full that finding accommodation becomes a problem. 

Security 

According to global peace index, Slovenia is one of the 10 safest countries in the world. No matter the time you are safe also in major cities. Of course things can happen and everything cannot be prevented, so you still have to take normal precautions.
