Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, is a beautiful little city on the edge of Europe and yet in some ways at its very center. It is the gatekeeper of the Schengen Zone. In Slovenia’s 20,000 km² the Julian Alps, the Mediterranean, and the Hungarian Plain converge. It is the place where German, Italian, Hungarian, and Slavic languages and cultures meet. The city itself is an interesting mixture of Baroque, Art Nouveau, and Plečnik architecture.
Zagreb, Croatia’s capital, is the economic and cultural center of the country. The city is a dynamic European hub with a lively café culture and a broad range of architectural monuments from the thirteenth-century St. Mark’s Church, with its elaborately tiled roof, and the massive Gothic Zagreb Cathedral, with Glagolitic inscriptions, to the eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Austro-Hungarian parks and city center.
