Slovenia, a country in Central Europe, is known for its mountains, ski resorts and lakes. On Lake Bled, a glacial lake fed by hot springs, the town of Bled contains a church-topped islet and a cliff-side medieval castle. In Ljubljana, Slovenia’s capital, baroque facades a beautiful mix with the 20th-century architecture of native Jože Ple?nik, whose iconic Tromostovje (Triple Bridge) spans the tightly curving Ljubljanica River. Slovenia is a country located in southern Central Europe at the crossroads of the main European cultural and trade routes.

Slovenia has a developed economy and is per capita the richest of the Slavic countries by nominal GDP, and the second richest by GDP (PPP). Slovenia was in the beginning of 2007 the first new member to introduce the euro as its currency, replacing the tolar. The tolar was the currency of Slovenia from 8 October 1991 until the introduction of the euro on 1 January 2007. It was subdivided into 100 stotinov (cents).
