If you want to explore the World, visit Slovenia ! In just 115 kilometers from the salt water of the Adriatic Sea to the Snow and Ice World of the Alps, from zero to almost three thousand meters. Slovenia offers almost all of Europe`s climate zones and habitats in a small area. The country is home to cave systems like Southeast Asia, forests like Canada, emerald waters like the Caribbean and lush canyons like South America`s rainforests. Slovenia is a European country with a geographical position in the far north of the Mediterranean and in the far south of central Europe. It borders on 4 countries, in the west with Italy, in the north with Austria, in the northeast with Hungary and in the east and the south with Croatia. It lies at the junction of the Alpine, Mediterranean, Karst, Panonian and Dinaric worlds. The area of 20.273 km2 is classified as a medium sized European country.

As mentioned earlier, it lies at the junction of the Alps, the Mediterranean, the Karst and the Panonian world. In one day, we can take a Photo of the sunrise on the top of Slovenia`s highest mountain Triglav and the sunset at the Adriatic Sea. Despite its small size, Slovenia is characterized by a large variety of animal species, which depends on the diversity of the environment and vegetation and the geological past. Only a small proportion of species are known to live on our territory, according to estimates from year 2000, around 19.000 animal species are to be found here, marine animals are poorly researched. Subterrranean animals are interesting because of the way of life and not so much variety, only a few species are known. Slovenia is one of the few Countries where Grey Wolf, Brown Bear and Eurasian Lynx still live, which have long since disappeared in most western European Countries. This testifies to her incredible Animal wealth. For example White-tailed Eagle, Osprey, Bee-eater, Kingfisher, Hoopoe and other birds you will meet in wetlands along Drava river, Wolf, Lynx, Red Deer and Bear in the Kocevje forest, Black Grouse and Capercaillie in the Carinthia forests, Alpine Ibex, Chamois and Rock Ptarmigan in the Julian Alps.
