the small slovenia with only 2 million inhabitants has a lot to offer for tourists. its beautiful capital ljubljana, the alps, caves, rivers, lakes, ....
- ljubljana = laibach, leibach, laybach ... habsburg monarchy ... slovene inhabited province carniola ... till approx. 1848 were the most inhabitants of ljubljana german speaking ... in the antique there was the roman city ebona ... after 1918 part of yugoslavia ... a really dark chapter was the WWII and mussolini's concentration camps where the italians have captured 1/4 or 1/5 of the (slovenian) population of ljubljana ... since 1991 capital of independent slovenia
- slovenian = (SLO) slovenski = slovensky (SVK) = slovakian 😄
there is still so much to explore in slovenia: the gruber canal (gruberkanal) at ljubljanica river and gruber mansion (gruberpalast) 😄 in ljubljana, the lake bled + bled castle (feb 2022), the postojna (adelsberg) cave and castle inside the cave, kranj (krain) + kranjska gora, triglav NP + lake jasna + lake bohinjsko jezero ... dear slovenia, we will come back if your and german corona regulations (aka hystery) allows free movement for not vaccinated people again.
