Travel advice: Check out the current travel advice for Slovenia

If you’re an EU inhabitant, you don’t need a visa if you’re traveling to Slovenia. However, you do need a valid passport or an ID card to be able to identify yourself if needed. Due to the Schengen agreement only people from third world countries and people that have been rejected for a visa in one of the Schengen countries before, need a visa prior to traveling to Slovenia.

There are no mandatory vaccinations for Slovenia. But it can be wise to get vaccinated for tetanus and hepatitis A. In some cases a vaccine for tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) can be smart too. But that really depends on what you’re planning to do there.

Budget

Prices in Slovenia are a bit lower than those in western Europe. But don’t expect prices like those you find more to the east. Because of the growth in the tourism industry,  the price difference with the west is getting smaller. Depending on the season in which you travel and the place you go, the costs for daily life may be slightly higher or lower.

Budget€35,- a day
Standard€45,- a day

The budgets mentioned above, are per person per day. In the ‘Budget’ category you stay in simple hostels, you will have to prepare food yourself sometimes and do cheaper (or less) activities. With the ‘Standard’ category you’ll have a private room (maybe in a hostel) and you can go out for dinner.

The best time to travel

Are you planning on doing lots of outdoor activities like rafting, kayaking, canyoning or mountain climbing in Slovenia? Then it’s best to travel to the country during summer, from halfway through June, July and August. Keep in mind that it can rain regularly, even during the summer. These summer showers are also what keeps this country green and beautiful! In winter there is snow almost every year and there are ski slopes to test your skiing skills. But we can also highly recommend just walking through the winter wonderland.

A few facts

Make sure you’re always carrying some cash on you. When you have to pay amounts under € 10, they usually don’t accept cards.

You don’t have to worry about communicating with locals. Slovenes speak English very well, something that is not always the case in its neighboring countries.
