Ljubljana is the biggest city and the capital of Slovenia and is located in Southern Central Europe. Slovenia is part of the EU and Schengen zone. The climate is similar to that of continental Europe, so depending on the season of your arrival you should bring winter or summer clothes because air temperatures differ quite a bit. Prices are similar to average EU prices, but non-basic needs like partying can be a bit cheaper than in the northern parts of Europe. Ljubljana is one of the safest cities in Europe. The local transport in Ljubljana is very good, same with taxi services, which are quite affordable. The accommodation options are endless and of good quality.
