QUICK SLOVENIA FACTS
Currency: The Euro can be withdrawn from ATMs throughout Slovenia, however keep in mind that smaller cities or towns may not have access to ATMs and its recommended to withdraw cash and take it with you.
Power Points: Most power points are the same as most other European power points (2 circular prongs). I would recommend you take a Travel Adapter especially for non Europeans.
Official Language: The official language of Slovenia is Slovenian.
Health: There are no major health concerns in Slovenia for travellers, however there’s a risk of tick-borne encephalitis in forests. I would recommend that you contact your doctor a few weeks before you travel as in some cases you need to start any medication a few days before your trip or you may need to get a vaccination. The tap water is generally safe to drink, however, if you are unsure, make sure to ask your hotel receptionist or host.
