“Slovenia quickly became one of my favorite European countries for its dramatic natural landscapes, unique mix of Mediterranean and Alpine geography, meticulously built towns and cities, and amazing food and wine. But that wasn’t even what impressed me the most during my visit: it was how much I learned from the Slovenian people’s entrepreneurial mindset.

Slovenians are an impressive group of people. The influences the country has absorbed from the Mediterranean, the Balkans, and Austria, Hungary, and Germany has made them mostly bilingual, culturally flexible to navigate different situations with ease, and quite competitive with its neighbors, which shows in the ways that the country has been economically excelling since it was founded.” (Forbes Magazine)
