Pozdravljeni and a warm welcome to our expat community in Slovenia! Created as a platform to serve and connect expatriates around the world, InterNations is here to guide you through the challenges and opportunities of moving to a new country. Many expats in Slovenia have made use of the extensive resources available on our platform during and after the process of relocating here. We're a community-driven service, so please don't hesitate to build on the contributions of our existing members by sharing your own experiences. Simply join InterNations and you'll find the answer to a host of frequently asked questions, such as finding rental properties in Ljubljana, obtaining a work permit or navigating Slovenia's highway regulations. Our community brings together both expats who have lived in Slovenia for many years as well as relatively new arrivals, meaning it's easy to find the advice and guidance you need. At InterNations our aim is to be the door to Slovenia's international community, helping you to reach out to other global minds, and also to integrate successfully into the Slovenian way of life. A fascinating and multifaceted culture that combines a distinct Balkan flavor with a strong Western influence, Slovenia offers a wide range of experiences for the open-minded expatriate, from wandering Ljubljana's historic old town to celebrating Prešeren Day, one of Slovenia's major cultural holidays.

Sitting on the border between Western Europe and the Balkans, Slovenia offers one of the continent's most rich and diverse landscapes with a culture to match. A former member state of Yugoslavia, Slovenia was the first to secede from the republic in the early 1990s, and enjoyed a relatively smooth transition to independence. With a well-developed infrastructure and a strategic location at one of the major crossroads of Europe, Slovenia today attracts many expats drawn to business opportunities in fields such as IT and software development, automobile manufacturing and pharmaceuticals. The economic crash took a heavy toll on Slovenia, but recent years have seen significant growth and recovery in the country. A diverse, welcoming and forward-thinking nation, Slovenia has much to recommend to expats looking for comfort and modernity in a location slightly off the beaten track.
