4. FRIENDLY PEOPLE
The Slovenians are a part of Slavic peoples who tend to be very outgoing, friendly and always happy to help. When it comes to the communication, no need to worry, the majority of young people know how to speak English, while the older people (depending on a region) understand German and Italian.
Because Slovenian language is not so easy to learn, the foreigners usually don’t speak it. So using Slovenian words when speaking to locals will make a really good impression and even get you some good tips for getting around Slovenia.
Furthermore, Slovenians are known for their hospitality. If they offer you something you must take it or try it. They will not accept “No” for an answer, as they might think you are just saying it because you don’t want to be rude. At the end they will convince you to accept it.
One good tip for when you visit, if you wander into the woods or up the hills, be kind to the village people, say “Dober dan” (which means “Hello”) and you might even end up spending an unforgettable tea-time at one of the local houses.
5. THE HIDDEN CYCLING TRAILS OF SLOVENIA
What makes Slovenia a true green fairy tale are the unforgettable drives between hills and planes; mountain peaks and forests; along the coast, rivers and lakes; the karst landscape; and through magical old towns. One of the best ways to see all this beauty is on an e-bike, as it enables you to cycle more kilometres, adjust the speed and energy expenditure, enjoy an easy conversation with the group and observe more nature along the way.
