What is the weather like?
The northwestern part of Slovenia has an Alpine climate, and temperatures in the valleys are moderate. June through September are the prime visiting months. The Adriatic coast enjoys a Mediterranean climate (warm sunny days). This time of year, temperatures typically range from the lower 50s to the upper 90s.
What should I wear?
Slovenians tend to dress somewhat sophisticated, though casual clothes are acceptable. Jeans, light-weight pants, blouses or t-shirts, and loose-fitting clothing are popular options. Lightweight jackets or sweaters are advisable for cooler evenings. Slovenians often walk from place to place, so comfortable, durable footwear is recommended. Trips involving running, cycling, hiking, water sports or other outdoor activities require special gear.
Slovenia is a member of the European Union, and more than half of the population identifies as Roman Catholic. There are no discernible customs restricting public appearance, though street clothes (rather than swimsuits) and sometimes over-the-knee pants and shirts are required in churches, museums, and other formal institutions.

Does anyone speak English?
The official language of Slovenia is Slovenian. Hungarian and Italian are co-official languages in small areas in the northeast and southwest of the country. Most people speak at least one foreign language, usually English. German and Croatian/Serbian languages are also spoken widely.
Will I be safe?
Slovenia is generally a very safe country. Still, pickpockets operate everywhere. Avoid leaving your belongings unattended, and avoid carrying large sums of cash or valuables with you on day trips. People can walk alone in virtually all areas and cities, even at night.
Injuries and illnesses are always possible, so we recommend inquiring about international medical coverage with your health insurance provider.
