Climate:

The climate in Slovenia varies from season to season and in different parts of the country. In the alpine region, the climate can be harsh but by the coast it’s a sub-Mediterranean climate.  Hading towards the north-east lowlands, the climate is more continental.  In January the temperature can drop to around 0°C but in July it can be above 20°C.

Tipping:

In years gone by, tipping wasn’t common however, in recent years, tips are becoming more common, especially in some of the areas highly visited by tourists.

Internet and communication:

Unlimited internet / wifi is common in cafes and bars at usually no cost however, sometimes you may need to buy a drink or meal. You will have to ask for login details. .

Health:

It’s advisable to use tick repellents in the woods due to the dangers of widespread Lyme disease and Meningitis. If bitten by one of the two known species of venomous adders in the Julian Alps, you should seek medical help to provide you with antiserums (although these are seldom administered). Tourists may encounter a bear in the forests to the south, though actual attacks are rare. Okay, I got this from another website but thought it was worth a mention. There are no vaccinations specifically required for Slovenia other than what you would have at home – Measles, Mumps, Rubella, Flu (if flu season), tetanus, Hep A & B.

HAPPY TRAVELS.
