O RIENTATION
Identification. Slovenia takes its name from the Slovenes, the group of South Slavs who originally settled the area. Eighty-seven percent of the population considers itself Slovene, while Hungarians and Italians constitute significant groups and have the status of indigenous minorities under the Slovenian Constitution, guaranteeing them seats in the National Assembly. There are other minority groups, most of whom immigrated, for economic reasons, from other regions of the former Yugoslavia after World War II. Location and Geography. Demography. In 2000, Slovenia had an overall population of about 1,970,056 with an overall population density of 252 people per square mile (97 per square kilometer). The majority of the population was ethnically Slovene, a Slavic group. The rest of the population was made up of Croats (2.7 percent), Serbs (2.4 percent), Bosnians (1.3 percent), Hungarians (0.43 percent), Montenegrins (0.22 percent), Macedonians (0.22 percent), Albanians (0.18 percent) and Italians (0.16 percent). Almost half of all Slovenes live in urban areas, mostly in Ljubljana and Maribor, the two largest cities, with the rest of the population distributed throughout rural areas.

It is spoken by approximately 2 million speakers worldwide, naturally the majority of whom live in Slovenia. Slovene is one of the few languages to have preserved the dual grammatical number from Proto-Indo-European. Also, Slovene and Slovak are the two modern Slavic languages whose names for themselves literally mean "Slavic". Slovene is one of the official languages of the European Union. Although the country is relatively small, there are over 32 different dialects spoken, which can be grouped into 7 larger dialect segments. The diversity in language is due to the influences of neighbouring countries as well as the mountainous nature of the country, which has led to isolated language development.

CULTURE In modern times the earliest signs of the Slovene spirit have surfaced in the field of culture. Ever since the poetry of France Preseren, culture has formed the heart of our national being. Urban culture has developed in Slovenia over the last two centuries, which has also seen the gradual evolvement of fundamental institutions such as National Museum, and the Slovene Philharmonics. Nowadays Slovenia has a myriad of theatres, cinemas, libraries and educational facilities and is well known abroad by its current cultural export. The band Laibach is absolutely pivotal in the field of music. Their early industrial sound from the 1980s still has a cult following around the world. Young composer Mitja Vrhovnik Smrekar is establishing himself as a very reputable writer of theatre music. Slovene literature and poetry is mostly very traditional, but international translations of the literary works of Drago Jancar, Tomaz Salamun and Ales Debeljak prove that even the smallest cultures can create work of high quality and also contribute to the most current global literary tendencies.

Slovenia Introduction
Slovenia is located in south Eastern Europe, bordering the eastern Alps and Adriatic Sea, between Austria, Italy, Hungary and Croatia. Slovenia is the northern republic of what was once Yugoslavia. Slovenia is the most prosperous and welcoming of all Europe's ex communist countries and it has avoided the political problems that have affected the republics to the south.
Why Go To Slovenia?
The short stretch of Slovenian Adriatic coast, along the northern edge of the Istrian peninsula, has towns that were among the most attractive resorts of the former Yugoslavia including the holiday destination of Portoroz. This beautiful resort of Portoroz offers a mild climate, good quality hotels and numerous attractions including health and leisure activities, two casinos, a marina and a sandy beach. The parks and their rose beds ensure that the town lives up to its name of the "Port of Roses". Slovenia is an excellent place for sport and recreation; active holidays are possible in all parts of the country during all seasons. In the winter time visitors are attracted by wonderful ski slopes, in summer by the waters and the sky above Slovenia, in spring and autumn by the colourful hiking and cycling trails.

Culture
Art and culture have always held a special place in the history of the Slovenian nation. With them Slovens substituted to a large extent for the non-existence of their own state and political institutions, and it is through their language and culture that for centuries managed to preserve their identity as a nation. Despite the polycentric organisation of the cultural area, the financing of culture falls largely under the jurisdiction of the state (providing up to two-thirds of all funding for culture, which is about two percent of the whole budget). Interesting statistics: Public libraries (2007) Professional theatres (2007) Professional orchestras (2007) Museums (2006) Galleries and exhibition grounds (2006) National budget for culture as % of GDP (2006)
