TOURISM Slovenia makes a great tourist destination. You can ski in the morning and surrender yourself to the luxury of the Adriatic Sea in the afternoon. Tourists can visit many places. My favourite parts in my country are: Bled, Logarska Valley, Postojna cave, Heathen Maiden, Lipica, Piran, Planica and Kranjska gora but our lakes and rivers are nice, too.

HISTORY Slovenian history started when our Slavic ancestors came from behind the Carpathi Mountains and proclaimed the principality of Carantania in the 7th century. Historians believe it was one of the most democratic and modern states at that point in history. So it is no surprise that even Thomas Jefferson took the example of Carantania when founding the modern American state. By the end of the 8th century, Carantania had become part of the Frankish Empire, then Slovenes were under the Habsburg dynasty after the first world war we joined the Croats and the Serbs and formed the kingdom of Slovenes,Croats and Serbs. After the second world war Yugoslavia was born, Slovenia became one of the republics in Yugoslavia. On 25 June 1991 Slovenia declared independence from Yugoslavia.
