Slovenia has historically been home to a unique language and cultural group whose lands have been controlled by numerous foreign powers over the centuries. Slovenia, as we know it now, was founded in 1991, but it came with a fully formed identity and set of customs.
The Ljubljana Festival is Slovenia’s most significant cultural festival, including dance, opera, and musical acts from across the world for ten weeks. The yearly production, which began in the summer of 1953 and continues from June to September, has 50 to 70 different shows.
Slovenian cuisine is meat-centric and substantial. A typical dinner would include a basic noodle soup, sausages, stew, or a beef cutlet with salad and potatoes. Dumplings, both sweet and savory, and excellent quality bread are frequently offered. Slovenia has a long history of drinking and a large number of wineries. Because most of the wine is not exported, local sampling produce requires a trip to the nation. Slovenian food and drink are less expensive than Italy or Austria, but it is more costly than Eastern European nations.
